The sixth game in the Skylanders series has been announced as Skylanders Imaginators. The core idea behind this edition of the game is the creation of your own custom Skylanders, there are also going to be 20 brand new "Sensei" Skylanders as well as 11 former Villains turned Skylander.

To create one of these "Imaginators" (an example above) you'll first need a Creation Crystal, you get a Fire element one in this year's Starter Pack, once you have that you can choose a class of fighter (10 to choose from including Sorcerer, Brawler, Ninja, etc.) and then mix and match through thousands of different combinations of heads, arms, torsos, legs, voices, weapons, and colour schemes to create a Skylander of your very own. The Creation Crystals will cost $9.99 each.

In addition to the custom Skylanders there will be new Sensei characters that will help improve your creations by unlocking things like special moves and allowing your creations to grow to higher levels. The Senseis are joined by a selection of reformed Villains, like Golden Queen, this time as fully fleshed out playable Skylanders complete with their own physical toy. These figures will cost $14.99 each.

So, uh, am I to assume then that this game is getting developed for last-gen consoles and ported up to the PS4 and Xbox One then? I understand Activision wants to maximize their profit here and reach the broadest audience, but that is very disappointing to see in 2016. <.<;

Did you read the consoles? No Wii. Iirc this engine is for the Ps4 and they're porting down, that was the case with SuperChargers. TFB is using the same graphical quality so I'll guess it's the same for them.

Looks great! I just hope we'll be able to make quadruped Skylanders so we can make our own dragons and whatnot. All that was seen in the trailer was bipedal characters. I hope this isn't the case, allowing us to make quadrupeds and bipedal Skylanders would allow for even more diverse characters. :c



I'm hoping for the same thing. I really want my Dark Cynder.

Dark Cynder would be cool, but I heard on a youtube video that there will be no reposes in this game.

I know. That's why I want to use one of those undead creation crystals to make my own Dark Cynder.

This game is gonna be awesome because we be able to create our own skylanders. But, I am still wondering about the "Creation Crystal". Is the crystal act as figure in the game? Do the body parts already in the game or in toy package?

If the body parts are in the game, then there will be 10 crystal and 10 senseis for each element.

I just hope this is better than SuperChargers.

It's all in the game page. 31 Senseis, villains and regular.
Crystals are the character editor and hold the created character. You'll find pieces throught the game, but with the new Dark Starter Pack pictures real figures might unlock some as well. In real life,however,you're playing with a huge hexagon tube with a crystal inside, your character is ingame only.
