Skylanders Imaginators announced
New game in the popular toys-to-life franchise will be out in October
Activision Publishing and developer Toys for Bob have announced Skylanders Imaginators, coming this October.
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. Customization options include appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and more.
Imaginators also introduces Skylanders Senseis, 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 Imaginator weapons, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as bestowing Secret Techniques across the Battle Classes. There are a total of 31 Senseis, which include some villains.
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 $74.99 starter pack, which include two new Skylanders characters, a Creation Crystal, Portal of Power and a copy of the game. The game will be released for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Wii U.
