From The Skylands To The Skyworld

With Skylanders releases slimming down, it’s time to take a quick trip away from Skylanders news, and see what else is happening in the gaming industry. Over the next couple of months, I will be extensively covering some new games, and I’m starting this journey with Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS. I will spend a few days on each game, and around E3 Convention time, we’ll land back at the Skylands ready for any and all Skylanders News!

Skylands to the Skyworld: Pit, the main protagonist in Kid Icarus: Uprising, is a flightless angel from the Skyworld, who is led by the Goddess of Light, Lady Palutena. Uprising was headed and developed by Smash Bros. Creator, Masahiro Sakuri, and he did one incredible job. Uprising is my favorite game of 2011-2012, if not of all time. I honestly can’t seem to put this game down! Over the next few days, I will be giving extensive coverage over this game, form details and tactics, to unlockables and gear. Uprising features a massive weapons system with tons of weapons, each of which can fuse together to create new weapons. With nine weapon categories, and a huge selection of each, it’s hard to keep up with which weapon combinations are the best, which effect modifications to look for, and how to know what to fuse to get your desired weapon. At the end of my Uprising coverage, I will release a massive chart with all of the weapons, fuse options, and even plausible effect modifications! If you have not looked into this game yet, I highly recommend you do, especially if you already have a Nintendo 3DS.

Lastly, don’t forget to check back Friday for the announcement of the Air Skylander Contest winner, who will be receiving a single pack Lightning Rod!

Spread the word, check back tonight, and feel free to comment!

Dragon’s Peak And Sunburn Details

With the Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack on its way to store shelves, details are starting to emerge for this final expansion pack, and we’ve go them right here, as well as a collection of incredible Dragon’s Peak and Sunburn images, as seen below. The adventure pack will come with the Dragon’s Peak expansion level, the Sunburn Skylander, the Winged Boots, and the Sparx Dragonfly.

Winged Boots – An incredible speed boost that lasts around thirty seconds.

Sparx Dragonfly – Sparx will flutter around your Skylander, attacking nearby enemies with here fire breath, and will last for about two minutes.

Dragon’s Peak – When placed on the portal, The Dragon’s Peak level will be activated in The Ruins. Dragon’s Peak is a very challenging level for low-level Skylanders. You start your adventure rescuing the Dragon King, and then the level will last an average half an hour, of which you will be faced against many dangerous enemies with relentless attacks.

Sunburn – The elusive phoenix dragon, Sunburn, will take down enemies with his thrashing fiery breath, a quick and dangerous teleport, or even the explosive phoenix dash! Sunburn will only be available in the Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack, so keep your eyes zoned on those store shelves!

Note: Along with Sunburn, Lightning Rod and Zook are also planned to hit store shelves by the beginning of April. For more information on Skylanders release dates, check out our Skylanders Schedule.
