Activison has released a character bio for Skylanders Giants Earth Giant Crusher, one of eight giant characters to feature in the highly anticipated sequel.


Element: Earth

Character Type: Giant

Bio: Crusher knew from the moment he put on his father's mining helmet that his true passion in life was crushing rocks. He was fascinated with rock-lore and traveled all throughout Skylands in search of rare minerals to pulverize with his powerful hand-crafted rock hammer, which he also named Crusher. But along his travels, he discovered that the evil Arkeyan King was also searching for rocks - to melt down into weapons of war. Crusher's fury built up like an avalanche. After all, crushing was his job! So he put aside his life's passion and decided to use his hammer for a greater purpose - crushing Arkeyan Robots!


Skylanders Giants will be released October 19 on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and 3DS. A Wii U version is also set to launch during the console's launch.
