Players will be able to pick up booster packs at retail for £4.99 each, or larger Battle Card decks at £9.99 each.

Characters come to life through what Skylanders produce manager David Duong calls "best in class" augmented reality, allowing players to zoom in and play around with the likes of Snap Shot or Food Fight, manipulating a full 3D model of the characters before sending them to your card decks.

Multiple decks can be saved, allowing you to tailor specific decks for different matches.

Hands on, Battlecast's similarities to the likes of Hearthstone are undeniable.

Activision hopes it will help Battlecast's more committed players make a mark on the esports scene.

The digital game is free-to-play, with booster packs purchased through either in-game virtual currency earned through play, or real money purchases.
