This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

While not the first Toys-to-Life adventure game, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure became popular enough to bring the genre into the mainstream for a good while. It also stars a certain titular purple dragon.

Chinese and Korean Menu Items

The Wii version contains Chinese and Korean language home button files and text strings, which is odd considering the game was never released in either language.

Revisional Differences

On the Skylanders collections menu, if you have the soul gem for a character and press A on their icon, a gameplay demo of the Skylander plays. For some reason, this was changed on Wii discs with the ID of RVL-SSPP-EUR-B0, which instead plays a short clip of the Skylander in the clouds (as seen in the character trailers).
