This morning, I opened an exciting email – Activision has announced Skylanders Imaginators, the newest game in the beloved Skylanders franchise. As soon as my son woke up, I couldn’t wait to show him the trailer below because he absolutely loves Skylanders. I wish I would have recorded him watching it because his excitement is contagious!
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.
Check out the trailer for Skylanders Imaginators below!
Skylanders Imaginators gives players immense possibilities — including appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and much more — to create the wildest Skylanders imaginable. The amazing depth of the creation system could allow for more than a googol distinctive characters.
With the evil Kaos on a new quest to take over Skylands, it’s up to Portal Masters everywhere to create their own Skylanders – known as Imaginators – using the new elementally-aligned toy type called the Creation Crystal. Creation Crystals allow players to transport their Imaginators to consoles at anytime, anywhere!
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!
