Nintendo hosting E3 2016 business presentation

This isn't anything too crazy. Nintendo usually does this every year. A quick presentation on the business side of things. It's not for new game reveals or anything like that, nor is it an event that the public gets to see. Whatever goes on behind closed doors doesn't really hold much excitement for fans.

Activision confirms new Skylanders game & Skylanders Academy TV series in 2016

The following blurb comes from Activision's Q1 2016 financial report...

Activision expects a new Skylanders® game to launch in 2016 along with Skylanders Academy, a new TV series celebrating the beloved kids franchise.

No surprise about another Skylanders game being in the works. We don't know platforms it'll hit yet, but we'll give you that info when it comes in. As far as the TV series, that's something we knew about, but weren't sure it would launch in 2016. Wouldn't be surprised to see the new show tie in directly to the upcoming game in some specific ways.
