Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg announced that Skylanders has sold over 100 million figurines in the U.S. alone. The company also announced that it has signed a deal with Nickelodeon to publish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles titles, with no less than three games coming this Summer.

"Before the launch of [Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure], we knew we had something special," said Hirshberg, speaking at the Toy Fair. "The key to longterm success is continuing to bring breakthrough innovation every time."

“Activision is a leader in the gaming industry and we are honored to have them as the global video game partner for our new hit series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” added Nickelodeon's Sherice Torres. “We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles."
