Read the small print in the Fritolay Sell Sheets doc from the link in the 1st post. Guess where i live :-)

"Free Sidekick Character – Exclusive to FL, Not distributed or sold anywhere else in the market"


Had to go back and double check cause I was getting pretty POed reading your post and its implications. FL stands for Frito-Lay, not Florida. Grr...

It'll be everywhere. All 50 states will have the promotion. Well..granted they don't pull another stunt like they're doing now and only releasing them at one chain..and one that doesn't even have it at every store to boot.

Oh, whatever. The whole "Europe gets screwed" argument officially died yesterday, when Nintendo said the Kid Icarus AR cards would be available in stores across the European continent. Us Americans got the shaft there, though if you haven't played Kid Icarus you don't understand why this is such a huge deal.



No, we Europeans still get screwed over. At least if you want to scan the AR cards, you can just look them up on a website. Sure, you don't have the physical card, but you can still reap the benefits. We can't scan over Skylander sidekicks off of the Internet.

And honestly, if that's the first time you've felt worse off than Europe, you should have tried being a gamer here up until a few years ago when we constantly got screwed over (and still do, although not to the extent we did).



Still not buying it. Europe got the Super Famicom, we got Super Nintendo (ie EU got the correctly named console). That was over 20 years ago, longer than about 75 percent of these boards have been alive. Europe gets screwed? Xenoblade, The Last Story, Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland and a handful of others say otherwise.

AND Europeans don't have to deal with neo cons, so AUTOMATIC ADVANTAGE. I'm not being hostile here; I'm really just jealous and wished I lived in Europe.




we never got the super famicom, we had the super nintendo, it was the japs that got the famicom

^We also never got the Virtual Boy, nor the microphone attachments for Hey You Pikachu...

There are so many games which only made a release in Japan and NA, for example, some of the Tales of games, some of the Harvest Moon games, some of the Digimon games... We never got the PS2 version of Re:CoM... We also didn't properly a few of the early Game Boy/Advance games which used a gyroscope because they were banned over here...

And America are getting the three RPGs, Xenoblade, Last Story and Pandora's Tower, they just have to wait a little longer...

We still get many games long after you guys have had them(unless the publisher decides to go for a shorter release window), and this is all I can currently think of at the moment, there is plenty more... We've just learned to get used to it, which must be the reason why those in NA are more likely to kick up a ruckus if anything goes slightly differently, that's the way I see it

#114 Posted: 16:17:17 07/05/2012
Well, there's still no word for us, on Pandora's Tower. The game isn't even an RPG, really. It's like a mix of Castlvania and God of War from what I am hearing.

I had to import Xenoblade from Europe. It's the best RPG I've played in my life. My past favorite RPG of all time, was Chrono Trigger, for 16 years. I have the Euro limited edition and I have 2 copies of the North American version. One sealed, one opened. I have 175 invested in it, and I still have 75 more sidequests to go, and one final dungeon to finish, before beating that masterpiece of a game. Oh, and 1 more level in each category in the rebuilding of Colony 6.

I dunno how accurate this is, but it gives a start date of June 18th through July 13th, for the sidekicks promo. It also goes on to say the promo is going to be a mail in of Frito Lay barcodes.

Given that the minions are tiny, not huge, and the doco states that the names aren't final, the conjecture is that the names are mis-directions.

^ I agree the names are really bad. By bad I mean that they do t fit them. Seriously making the little things have big names make people think the we're bigger in the game the the normal people. I much prefer the names people found on the game. I hope they change it back to the original names.

Those aren't the Sidekick's real names. If you had noticed, the words under the mini Skylanders say 'Real Names TBD (To Be Determined)'

We saw the Sidekick's real names in the game when some guy hacked into it: Whisper Elf, Trigger Snappy, Terrabite, and Gill Runt.

FL is an abbreviation for "Frito-Lay", not Florida. It wouldn't even make sense to release these in one state.

Interesting though that they're doing them in waves. I'm thinking that the possibility of them actually being in the bags is still there then.

Shoulda called them Skykicks.

Also, the US get Kid Icarus AR cards, too. What're you talking about?

If they make more sidekicks, I would Love to see one of Dounle Trouble and Sonic Boom. They would make the best ones. However, I just can't see dragon sidekicks.

We would have found more coding for them if there was; the only data in the game is for those 4. But I can see them making some for Giants if they turn out to be popular.

As he says that, Doritos go counterclockwise around the screen.
