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.

Okay, I know this is the Skylanders Imaginators section, but there is no Ring of Heroes section, so here's my question: Why is Skylanders Ring of Heroes rated T for TEEN (at least the beta version)? According to the ESRB, it's for violence (understandable) and BLOOD? I don't know if anyone else thought this was weird but it is really confusing for me especially because all of the other Skylanders games are rated E10+. Not complaining, just surprised.

Also I have another question: Will Skylanders Ring of Heroes come to the Nintendo Switch? It may sound crazy, but many mobile games have come over onto the Nintendo Switch. I am asking as a Switch owner because it would be awesome to have another Skylanders game on the Nintendo Switch.

"The only reason he was made a Skylander in the first place was so they could get a feel for how a future Spyro game would be taken by fans."

Uhh, not really. He was used as a marking prop for Skylanders, and nothing really more. People have been wanting an HD remake/remaster of the original Spyro trilogy for over a decade now. It's just Activision didn't want to do it until now.

So... I wanna ask You what varient is your fav cose I wanna get them now cose I have every skylanders (btw think skylanders Will live more)
#7225 Greeble 21:48:57 29/04/2018
I highly doubt Skylanders will be gone since Spyro has a new series.

The only reason he was made a Skylander in the first place was so they could get a feel for how a future Spyro game would be taken by fans.

Now that he's back in his own series, Skylanders will move on without him in it.

Also how do i duplicate weapons and stuff? duplicate weapons and stuff from when you first put skylanders on the portal
#7222 SkylandrPurists 10:47:13 02/04/2018

#7221 lordexodus 02:51:36 02/04/2018
Need of each of the following:

Creation Crystals = Air Acorn, Earth Rune, Fire Angel, Tech Pyramid, Light Angel

Skylander = Heartbreaker Buckshot

As usual, no BS...

There's pretty much no hope left for Skylanders.
