Esdevium Games will supply collectable cards to retail from this September.
The hit video game / toy crossover phenomenon Skylanders is getting its own trading card game.
Topps’ Skylanders Giants Collector Cards will arrive in September, courtesy of Esdevium Games.
There will be over 160 cards to collect including characters such as Bouncer, Tree Rex and Spyro.
“We’re delighted to be working with Topps on Skylanders”, said Esdevium sales director Steve Buckmaster.
“Cards are the natural addition to the Skylanders offering and kids can now trade and collect their favourite characters”.
The cards will be available in booster and starter packs at 75p and £4.99 respectively. They will launch around the back-to-school period in September – a month or so ahead of the new Skylanders Giants video game.
Over 25 million Skylanders figurines have been sold worldwide.
