While the toys-to-life trend in gaming might have settled down recently, the franchise that managed to start it all, Skylanders, managed to become a massive hit, spawning numerous games and hundreds of collectable figures. The game’s publisher, Activison, announced back in June that it would be building off that success with an animated series, Skylanders Academy.
Activision has now confirmed the first season will be available for streaming on Netflix on October 28. The show will of course feature Spyro the Dragon as the lead character, and he has to partner with a group of other popular characters from the series to fight back the forces of Kaos. Like most kids shows, Activision is promising a mix of action, adventure, and humor.
For those interested in the games as well, the newest entry in the series, Skylanders Imaginators, will be available in North America on October 13.
