Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, which launched in October 2011, was the number one console game based on revenues between January 30 and April 2012, Activision has announced.

Worldwide revenue is inclusive of toy and accessories, based on data from The NDP Group, Chart Track and Activision estimates.

"This achievement is incredibly gratifying, and quite an honour for everyone at Activision and our team at Toys for Bob," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "It was a simple idea really - bridging the gap between real and virtual play - but one that required tremendous creativity to execute and communicate to our audience. It spawned a new category and a new platform for play in an overwhelmingly challenging marketplace. We couldn't be happier that there is an ever-growing universe of Portal Masters out there."

The console sequel, Skylanders Giants, will be on show at E3 next week before hitting stores this October. The game will introduce more than 20 new figures and a raft of technological and gameplay innovations designed to create more opportunities for collaborative and competitive play.
