It almost seems impossible that there was ever a time when video game studios didn’t produce games that interact with separate toys and software. Just a few years ago, the Toys-to-Life category of video games was a laughing-stock. Before it launched, buying tiny Skylanders action figures to unlock new gameplay experiences wasn’t something people did. At E3 2015, it seems pushing video games with extra figures and characters is something every game studio is doing.
Activision ignited a raging fire with the original Skylanders game. This year the studio is back to prove it has what it takes to stay on-top in the lucrative category. Amiibo, the toys that Nintendo introduced specifically for its games and platforms are back too. There’s yet-another newcomer to the category showing off their wares at E3 2015.
