Activision's beloved monsters made an appearance at Nintendo's media briefing today. Toys for Bob's Skylanders: Giants is heading to Wii U, and it's going to take advantage of the GamePad. Gyroscope movement allows players to tilt for movement, and the touch screen can be used to drag and drop Skylanders characters.

Skylanders: Giants releases on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and 3DS on October 21, and although it wasn't announced at the briefing, should be a launch title for Wii U on November 18.
