The seventh post launch playable Skylander addition to the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes has been released and it's the Life Sensei Boom Bloom!

Rounding out the Senseis from Imaginators you can earn enough soul stones to summon her through playing the brand new Episode Dungeon that has released alongside her, which is as usual only open for two weeks.

You can read the full patch notes to get the full details but Boom Bloom and the Episode Dungeon are pretty much the entire patch.

For the past couple of months Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled has been running online "Grand Prix" events that you could take part in to unlock new characters and customisations, the upcoming one, starting this Friday, is the turn of the previously announced Spyro and Friends Grand Prix.


The unlockable characters for this event are Spyro, Hunter, and Gnasty Gnorc. For a closer look at the Spyro themed track itself, called Spyro Circuit, and some other unlockables (like a Reignited style Dark Spyro skin) you can head on over to the PlayStation Blog.

The fifth and sixth post launch additions to the lineup of Skylanders in the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes were released today, they were the Undead element Chop Chop and the Light element Spotlight. Unlike the previous additions they were not accompanied by an episode dungeon, so you'll just have to unlock them both the regular way: through sheer random luck when summoning.

The full patch notes give more details about the many other changes to the game that 1.0.12 has brought with it. Most notable are the changes to how you earn Soul Stones, the game has removed the ability to earn them through Adventures and has instead greatly boosted how many are given to you when summoning. Naturally this has meant a lot of changes to the rewards for activities throughout the game, with most being reduced or switched to make it harder to earn a summon than ever before.

Anyone who has finished powering up a Skylander and found themselves with excess Soul Stones will be interested to hear that there is now a way to convert them into "Soul Stone Shards" which can then be combined into an "Element Ticket" which is then used to summon either 200 Heroic or 100 Legendary Soul Stones for a random Skylander of your chosen element. Of course this has an incredibly low exchange rate considering it requires 12,000 Shards for one ticket.

Today's update for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has brought with it a brand new mode: Guild War. If your guild has 10 or more members you can take part in daily battles against members of another guild, rewards for competing include guild points and wish stones as well as gems at the end of each season. You can find all the details on how to get battling by reading the official Guild War Guide.

The patch also brings a few changes to several Light and Dark Skylanders and lots of initial cooldown changes which may mean you'll want to change up your start of battle strategy.

Meditating Woodland has returned to a useful EXP amount, the active Skylander EXP is slightly lower than it was originally but spectators in the Woodland now get the same EXP as the active Skylanders.

And the Magic Shop has gained two more purchasable slots, it now also sells Runes and the stock can be refreshed with Gems.

As usual check out the full patch notes for all the details.

In today's E3 Nintendo Direct it was very briefly revealed that the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy will indeed be releasing on the Nintendo Switch at long last, due on the 3rd of September the game will also be releasing on Steam at the same time.

It was also announced today that Spyro will be a playable driver in the upcoming Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled. He won't be available at launch but will instead be unlocked in a free, post launch, Grand Prix event.


And in some Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly news, LXShadow recently discovered a couple of brand new cheat codes for the game including one that makes the game really slow!

Today's patch for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes brought with it two newly playable five star Skylanders: Drobot and Head Rush. As with the previous set of new Skylanders the update also brings a new Episode Dungeon, this one featuring Drobot. It'll only stick around until June 6th so don't dawdle if you want to earn all the rewards!

The update also makes some more changes to the arena system, the incredibly harsh reset introduced in the last update has been cut back to now only dropping you back one rank group rather than two. And earlier in the week a small update cut defense losses in half.

And you now have three entries per day for the Guild Invasion but the rewards have been reduced for each go. You also cannot use the Skylanders that were defeated in your previous runs from that day so you'll now need 9 strong Skylanders if you want to get the maximum rewards from it.

Check out the full patch notes for all the Skylander ability modifications and other assorted changes and bug fixes.

Guilds in the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes just got their first bit of actual content, Invasion!

[User Posted Image]

If you're in a guild then once a day you can take on a Dark Doom Raider in an attempt to inflict as much damage as you possibly can, the more damage you do before it defeats you the better your score and the better your reward.

Your individual score will then be combined with your fellow guild members' scores to give your guild a total score. That's used to compete against other guilds on your server with rewards given out at the end of each week based on your guild's ranking.
