Activision has released a new video showing how Skylanders developer Toys For Bob produced the new Giants game.

The trailer includes commentary from studio head Paul Reiche, chief of staff Alex Ness and toys and characters director I-Wei Huang.

The team revealed that one animator is dedicated to each game character, in order to refine the Skylander's personality.

The new Skylanders Giants toys launch in the UK on October 19th. The In Thing will be supplying the stock to indie toy retailers and CentreSoft will supply national chains.
