After a reported leak revealed the next entry in Activision’s Skylanders series to be coming later this year, a recently released trailer has made the news official, showcasing some of the gameplay for the up and coming toys-to-life game, Skylanders Imaginators.
Skylanders Imaginators is said to feature “20 brand new Skylander Senseis” in addition to “11 former villains” making up the playable cast. Characters will also reportedly possess Battle Classes, such as Sorcerer, Brawler or Knight.
Players will also be able to create and store their own custom Skylander by way of element-specific Creation Crystals. A fire Creation Crystal will allegedly be included in the game’s Starter Pack, as well as Water Sensi Master King Pen, the Earth villain, Golden Queen and Undead baddie, Wolfgang. As usual, a new Portal of Power will come included in the package, which is said to resemble the portal used in Skylanders Swap Force.
A Dark Edition of the Starter Pack will also be available, the contents of which include a mega collector poster, five sticker sheets with secret codes, five trading cards and five Skylanders figures, in addition to a Portal of Power and copy of the game. The Dark Edition is available to pre-order from GameStop
Skylanders Imaginators will release in the USA on October 14 2016 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The game is currently available for pre-order through the Skylanders official site, with retailers including Toys R Us, Amazon and GameStop.
