The story of Skylanders Imaginators takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as "Mind Magic" to create everything in Skylands. With it, they conjured into existence anything that they could imagine! However, they soon learned that in the wrong hands, it could be very dangerous, and so they sealed it away so that it could never be misused. After discovering this ancient secret, Kaos has unleashed the power of "Mind Magic" into Skylands once again - and he is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, the likes of which have never been seen! Now it's up to Portal Masters to create Skylanders Imaginators from their own imagination and stop Kaos and his evil Doomlanders before it is too late. And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time - the Senseis!


For new playable characters there are 20 brand new Skylander Senseis as well as 11 former villains. Along with their element each Sensei will also have a Battle Class from a list of ten: Smasher, Knight, Ninja, Bazooker, Quickshot, Sorcerer, Brawler, Sentinel, Swashbuckler, and Bowslinger.

The first set of characters to be revealed included King Pen, Golden Queen, and Tri-Tip. Here is a table containing all of the new Skylanders, click the + to see all the known variants:

"Sensei" is the collective name for the new set of Skylanders (the villains also function as Senseis), their Battle Class determines the types of attacks and weapons they use as well as which abilities they unlock for your Imaginators. They all have a new type of super attack called Sky-Chi that slowly fills up as you defeat enemies until it reaches a point where you can unleash it on your unsuspecting foes (quite similar to the ability Trap Masters had in the 3DS version of Trap Team).

Owning a Sensei of a particular battle class will unlock a Secret Technique for your Imaginators of the same class. As well as that they will each unlock an item and a weapon for use in customisation. Senseis will also be able to access areas known as "Sensei Elemental Realms".

Creation Crystal

Included in the Starter Pack is a Fire Creation Crystal, this allows you to create and store your very own custom Fire element Skylander. To create a Skylander of a different element you'll need to purchase a Creation Crystal of that element.

Be aware that once you select a Battle Class you can not change it on that Creation Crystal ever again. So choose carefully!

Starter Pack

In the Starter Pack you get the Water Sensei Master King Pen, the Earth Villain Golden Queen, and a Fire Creation Crystal. The portal included is identical to that of the Swap Force portal (some regions instead have a modified SuperChargers Portal without a trap slot).

There is also once again a Dark Edition of the Starter Pack, it contains three Dark variant Skylanders (King Pen, Golden Queen, and Wolfgang) and three standard Creation Crystals (Fire, Life, and Dark). The pack also comes with a Gold Imaginite Mystery Chest that unlocks some gear for your Imaginators.

And there is a "Crash Edition" that is only available on PlayStation 3 and 4, it has the same contents as the regular Starter Pack plus the Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex toys. The characters will be available in a separately sold Adventure Pack at a later date.


The game is only appearing on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Wii U. That means no Wii, 3DS, or Tablet versions this year.

V His name is Master King Pen, and the one in the middle is an Imaginator.
#44 SodaPopHD 22:23:41 31/05/2016
Wait, so, King Pen is Water, Golden Queen is Earth, and Tri Tip is also Earth. We also have a Life character, a Fire character, and some other elemental character on that logo.
#43 LameLime 22:13:57 31/05/2016
Superchargers is the only Skylanders game I don't have, but I MIGHT get this game day-one. I also came up with a new TtL concept and now this game is using the same idea. I'M A WIZARD.
#42 SodaPopHD 22:07:21 31/05/2016
Wait, WHAT?! I came back to see THIS! HAs it been revealed?? I have heard NOTHING about this! THIS IS HYPE!
#41 midnightmagic34 21:54:03 31/05/2016
I might actually get this game...I skipped Superchargers and the end of Trap-Team because neither of those games were all that great. But this game! Wow!
#40 Greeble 21:53:59 31/05/2016
V well that's my short theory shattered.

I didn't realise pics had been leaked.

I want the Golden Queen, i love her figure.
#39 SkylandrPurists 21:46:28 31/05/2016
If you look closely at Tri-Tip's figure pedestal, it matches smilie's pedestal AND is different from King Pen's Water Element pedestal.
#38 ZapNorris 21:37:42 31/05/2016
THE LOGO... is really hype.
#37 Greeble 21:36:29 31/05/2016
V Has it been confirmed which element Tri Tip is?
#36 SkylandrPurists 21:33:58 31/05/2016
Tri Tip is an Earth Element
Also, Giants and Trap Team didn't start with a Stealth Elf

Have you guys noticed with smilie in the Starter Pack, we have now all eight major elements in at least one main starter pack?
#35 Greeble 21:03:01 31/05/2016
I was hoping they'd do something like this.

My own custom Skylander *faints*

I'm going with Life Triceratops for Tri Tip, please take note.

Isn't this the first pack that's never had a Stealth Elf Included?

I think we all could have guessed that he was a Knight from the start, and what a way to kick off the starter pack by adding the Golden Queen.

I want Mesmerelda as a playable villain, the majority of the Trap Team ones were seriously bleh...

Alas poor Wii, you served me well, time for Xbox one to shine smilie

I hope they don't do the same thing with the other crystals and leave a set for Australia only, that was a really dumb move imo.

I just hope they hurry with the last of the SuperChargers, because i want to have them done before i start the next game.

Does anyone think there will be another storage box for the crystals?

When the release hits i'm going to be like a Greeble possessed, you have been warned Europe smilie
