Skylanders Battlegrounds, the heavily-rumoured iOS Skylanders game, is real and could release as early as next week, VideoGamer.com has learned.

Battlegrounds, which has been described by toy retailer Smyths Toys as the "premier Skylanders iOS game experience", will offer up an all-new adventure set in the Skylanders universe and let players import their existing Skylanders characters into the game via a wireless Portal of Power.

The game will be sold via a special 'Skylanders Battlegrounds Mobile Starter Pack', which includes the Bluetooth-operated Portal of Power, three Skylanders iOS apps (Cloud Patrol, Lost Islands Kingdom and Battlegrounds), an iOS-exclusive Platinum Treasure Chest used to unlock digital items, and three Skylanders figures: Cynder, Jet-Vac and a special edition Royal Double Trouble.

The pack will cost £39.99.

The information was verified by an industry source who wished to remain anonymous, who further suggested that the game could release as early as next Friday, October 19.

According to our source, Skylanders Battlegrounds has been developed exclusively for iOS and will not see an Android release.

Skylanders Battlegrounds has yet to be officially announced by Activision. Skylanders Giants, the sequel to last year's Spyro's Adventure, launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, DS and 3DS next Friday, October 19.

Activision chose not to comment when contacted by VideoGamer.com.

Why is it sad that a game aimed at youngsters might sell well? Is it because it doesn't appeal to you clockpunk or because Activision are creating something that's not for the older generation of gamers?

I think a lot of youngsters will enjoy this game by the looks of it, so what's got to be said to make that sad? The only sad thing is that this somehow makes you sad for no real reason!

'Why sadly?' You ask?

Because this is Activision. Franchise milking, bubble fad inducing, EXTRA expensive iOS game, potential precedences set... None of which are a good thing.

Why "Sadly"? There really is no reason to be so exclusive when it comes to our hobby. So what if ActiVision want to release a game that you will never buy on a platform that you will never buy? Fears that such releases will somehow affect us by watering games down so that they all appeal to the mass market have so far proved to be absolutely unfounded. You got Borderlands 2, Resi 6, Dishonored, XCOM, FIFA 13, Fable: The Journey, and WRC 3 in the last couple of weeks. Let the kids have this one.

My first thought: Is this a joke?

Second thought: I can see this selling very well, in all honesty...

Sadly.
