Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Starter Pack Characters Detailed

by on June 3, 2011

As a teaser for some more detailed Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure news that we will be bringing you next week during E3, Activision has released some character vignettes, which tell us a little more about the characters that are set to feature in the game’s starter pack.

Skylanders Spyro’s adventure involves real life toys, which players will have to place on the Portal of Power to bring them into the game. The three toy characters that come in the starter pack are: Spyro, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy. We have some information and some short clips where players can see all three characters in action.

Check out the character vignettes below, as per the press release.

Spyro “All Fired Up”

Element: Magic

Primary Attack: Fire Breath

Secondary Attack: Horn Charge

Background: Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. He has been on many exciting adventures, and has a remarkable knowledge of the different lands he protects. A strong-willed dragon who is young at heart, Spyro is fearless and brave. A true hero dedicated to defending his world from all things evil.

Gill Grunt “Fear The Fish”

Element: Water

Primary Attack: Harpoon Gun

Secondary Attack: Water Cannon

Background: For many years Gill Grunt peacefully lived deep in the oceans until a nasty band of pirates kidnapped his Mermaid girlfriend. He then took to land and sea to search for her, eventually joining the Skylanders to help defend the world from every kind of foe… but especially pirates. Gill Grunt is one fish that never lets evil off the hook.

Trigger Happy “No Gold, No Glory”

Element: Tech

Primary Attack: Gold Coin Shooters

Secondary Attack: Safe Cracker Bomb

Background: Trigger Happy is more than his name, it’s his solution to every problem. Nobody knows from where he came. He just showed up one day blasting gold coins everywhere with his custom-crafted shooters. Now everyone throughout the lands knows of this crazy goldslinger that will take down any bad guy… usually without bothering to aim.

What do you think about the characters that will come with the starter pack? Personally, I’m loving Trigger Happy and his big shiny guns. Check back on Tuesday for some more  detailed Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure news.
