Activision endorses Kindle Fire with Skylanders

Activision is throwing its wright behind Amazon’s Kindle Fire and is releasing a new Skylanders title on the tablet.

The Skylanders franchise, which spans games and toys, has become a hit with younger audiences, and is now one of Activision’s best-selling titles of recent years.

Skylanders: Cloud Patrol for the Kindle Fire will allow players will be able to purchase toys from within the game app.

Players can purchase toys via in-app purchasing and physical toys will then be dispatched to them.

John Coyne, consumer marketing vice president at Activision explained that Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure was the number one seller for the first six months of 2012 in the USA and Europe, if you count accessory and toy sales.

The game will sell for $0.99 at launch and offers further unlockable digital content.

Amazon announced that its new Kindle Fire HD would be coming to UK and Europe at a press conference in California yesterday.
