The animated Skylanders TV series Skylanders Academy will debut on Netflix in Fall 2016 as part of a two season partnership it was announced today.

Quote: Press Release

The series follows the heroic adventures of the Skylanders team, a group of heroes with unique elemental skills and personalities who travel the vast Skylands universe, protecting it from evil-doers and showing the next wave of Academy cadets how to do things the "Skylander way."



Skylanders Academy will feature the voices of Justin Long as Spyro, Ashley Tisdale as Stealth Elf, Jonathan Banks as Eruptor, and Norm MacDonald as Glumshanks. There will of course be many more people providing voices for the series including The Diamond Minecart, Susan Sarandon, Daniel Wu, Parker Posey, James Hetfield, Catherine O'Hara, Bobcat Goldthwait, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jonny Rees, Harland Williams and Richard Horvitz.

Confirming the rumours, at Sony's E3 press conference it was revealed that Crash Bandicoot is indeed coming to Skylanders Imaginators.

As for the game's lore for why he's here:

Quote:

A wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He has come to announce the once-in-two-decades Synchronization Celebration--a time when all of the worlds align perfectly. All the inhabitants of Wumpa Island are having a party and they want to invite the Skylanders. But with Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using his army of Doomlanders, the Skylanders must focus on stopping his evil plans. Never one to shy away from danger, the legendary marsupial Crash Bandicoot leaps through the wormhole to join the Skylanders in the ultimate battle against Kaos!

He will be available in special PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 Starter Packs but the character will be playable on all consoles, he will not be restricted like Bowser and Donkey Kong last year.


And that's not all for the long dormant character, they'll also be remastering the first three PS1 Crash Bandicoot games for PS4.

Following on from a couple of Singapore based retailers listing a PS4 exclusive "Crash Edition" of Skylanders Imaginators, the official website has perhaps inadvertently confirmed that something with that name is indeed coming.

Nothing beyond the word "Crash" is mentioned as the tab does nothing when clicked on but it certainly backs up what those retailers had listed. With E3 2016 next week the contents of this "Crash" bundle will hopefully not remain a mystery for too much longer.

The site also showed off the toys of a couple of new Sensei characters that we've previously seen in artwork form, as well as Wolfgang's regular toy.

Thanks to TheCreator for spotting this.
