Activision is releasing Skylanders Imaginators – the newest game in the beloved Skylanders franchise on October 16th. Skylanders Imaginators gives kids the power to create their own Skylanders and bring them to life for the first time in an all-new adventure with a compelling storyline, puzzles, battles, and a new lineup of heroes and villains. This game offers fans infinite possibilities for unique Skylanders, which will be saved on a new toy type – Creation Crystals. Imaginators will also introduce Sensei toys, new guest stars that are masters in one of ten Battle Classes.
On the heels of the Crash Bandicoot unveiling at E3, Activision is also bringing Kaos and Crash’s arch-nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex characters into the Skylanders Imaginators universe! The two supervillains are joining the lineup of Skylanders Sensei characters as fully-playable toys.
Kaos will even be available for FREE to fans who pre-order and purchase the Skylanders Imaginators starter pack (while supplies last)!
Additionally, Skylanders Imaginators will feature an all-new dedicated Crash Bandicoot level called Thumpin’ Wumpa Islands! This level is steeped in nostalgic Crash Bandicoot gameplay, including the classic TNT boxes, crabs, hazards, temple ruins, Wumpa Fruit, exploding fruit and more. This level will be available on the PS3 and PS4 starter packs at launch and will be released in a special Adventure Pack for all platforms later this year.
As you know, Skylanders Imaginators offers two fun ways to play:
- Create your own Imaginators using Creation Crystals
- Collect Sensei characters to level up your Imaginators and blow enemies away with powerful Sky Chi attacks
Skylanders Imaginators introduces Skylanders Senseis, all-new heroes who represent 10 powerful Battle Classes such as Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger, Brawler and more. Skylanders Senseis help train created Imaginators by offering a range of benefits including unlocking super-cool Imaginator weapons, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as bestowing Secret Techniques across the Battle Classes. Senseis also have their own unique benefits including the extraordinary ability to unleash Sky-Chi – the ultimate Battle Class super move. There are a total of 31 Senseis, which include some fan-favorite villains who have been reformed and now fight for good!
Fans can pre-order Skylanders Imaginators Starter Packs which include two new Skylanders characters, a Creation Crystal, Portal of Power® and the full AAA game. Skylanders Imaginators will be available on Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment systems and Nintendo’s Wii U™ system.
Developed by Toys For Bob, Skylanders Imaginators supports all 300+ Skylanders toys from previous games. The game will be available on October 16 in North America for the suggested retail price of $74.99.
