Returning for its sixth installment, Skylanders: Imaginators is landing soon and brings a whole host of awesome new features for players to get stuck into.
Famous for its physical/digital crossover, where players buy real model characters and play with them in the game by transferring them using a ‘Portal of Power’, Skylanders: Imaginators continues doing what the series does best, while introducing some incredible new characters.
The biggest addition is the ability to create your own Skylanders characters to play with. By using a ‘Creation Crystal’ on the Skylanders portal, your imagination is the only limit, given the extensive creation options available. Created Skylanders can be given unique abilities, catchphrases and much, much more.
This is sure to be the biggest pull for the latest addition to the Skylanders series, but there’s one well-loved character making his debut that hasn’t been seen for a long while, who could steal the show in October…
That’s right! The adored gaming veteran Crash Bandicoot has now got his own Skylanders character, letting PlayStation 4 players use him to play through the game. And of course, like Yin and Yang, you can’t have Crash without his nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex, who will also receive his own toy and in-game character. Xbox One and Wii U players shouldn’t worry – Crash Bandicoot looks certain to make his way to other consoles soon enough!
That alone should be enough to persuade any Crash lover to buy Skylanders: Imaginators, but there are many more characters to collect, including our trusty old friend Spyro the dragon.
The game transports you back to a time long ago when the ‘Ancients’ figured out that they could use ‘Mind Magic’ – another term for ‘imagination’ – to dream up and create anything they wanted in the world. Nefarious beings like Kaos, who has created a whole army unrivalled by anything else ever before, quickly realised that this could be used for their own evil means. As such, it’s up to the Portal Masters to build their own team and stop the evil Kaos!
Senseis will help the player train, expanding their abilities and teaching them how to overcome Kaos’ seemingly undefeatable army. And of course, every character that’s placed on the portal adds to a player’s capabilities, until they’re eventually ready to turn the world back into the imagination dreamland it was meant to be.
