Skylanders Imaginators Announced for 2016
Activision has announced the next entry in the Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Imaginators.
In this all-new adventure, players will be able to create their very own Skylanders, a first for the series! Characters can be created and saved using a new toy known as a "Creation Crystal". A base can support up to two Creation Crystals at a time. Once the toy is on the base, players can select one of nine different skill classes to choose from and from there, they can create any combination of hero that they desire.
Along with the new Creation Crystals comes the addition of "Senseis". There are a total of 20 new Sensei characters to choose from. These characters will work much more like a traditional Skylanders and even include new fighting abilities known as "Sky Chi". Senseis will be able to unlock new areas of the game and play the role of "Master" to the Imaginators. The game can technically be completed solely with the Sensei characters but let's be honest, who doesn't want to create their own Skylander?
As with each entry in the franchise, it looks like Imaginators provide a unique twist to the formula. The game launches on October 16, in the US for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and Wii U.
