It was announced by Activision that the next entry in the Skylanders franchise would be Skylanders Imaginators.
Players will be able to create their own unique Skylander for the first time in Skylanders Imaginators. The game will also follow a brand new story set in the Skylanders universe.
As expected the game does support the toys from all the previous Skylander games. The game allows players to create their own Skylander with their own individual heads, powers, weapons, abilities, tails, ears, catchphrases and fighting styles, but to name a few, and will be fully customizable. When players are done creating their own Skylander they can download them to a physical Creation Crystal, imagine a Pokeball if you will, from where you can transport them and use them on any console.
New characters called Senseis will also be introduced. These characters will include 20 brand new ones and 11 former villains. these Senseis are used to unlock unique Imaginator weapons and secret techniques, but that’s not all. Each has their own master move called Sky Chi which varies depending on which class they are. These new characters aren’t needed to play the core Skylanders game, but can be considered a nice addition to any Skylanders collection.
Skylanders Imaginator will release in October 2016 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Wii U.
