Activision Buys Rights To Crazy Bones Games

GoGo's Crazy Bones have been immensely popular with young children

Activision have apparently snapped up the rights to make games based on GoGo’s Crazy Bones toys in the hope that it will be able to rival the Pokémon games.

Crazy Bones are very popular amongst young children (apparently this is the case in America also) and so Activision would be hoping that any video-games based on the toy franchise would be able to replicate the popularity, and so provide competition for the all-conquering Pokémon.

Personally, I thought the Crazy Bones craze had died down (I collected them myself many years ago) but Activision is not one to invest in something that isn’t going to make them money. I’m not sure that it will rival the insane popularity of the Pokémon games, but it could potentially come close.
