As part of the ongoing glimpses of the upcoming revamp to the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes the developers have released a first look at how the battle system will be modified.

The biggest change by far is that the real time battle system will be replaced, instead the game's battles will take place using a turn based system. It will still run on mana but you'll take turns choosing an attack instead of racing to get your attacks in the queue first.

Villains will no longer be a part of your team, instead teams will consist of four Skylanders and your Portal Master avatar.

Endurance will no longer automatically stun when it reaches zero, instead the Skylander/enemy's attack and defence will be lowered and they will become vulnerable to certain skills that can stun.

And nearly all of the Skylander skills will get some form of modification so you'll probably have to completely reassess which Skylanders you're going to be using.

The mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has been quiet for most of the year after announcing in February that they were going to revamp the game in some manner. Today they have shared some information on how the role of the Portal Master will be changed in this revamp.

Eugenie, George, Ryeo, and Bruno

Not only are they adding two new designs but they've given each of them a name and a backstory along with their own special abilities to use during battles which you will be able to level up to improve.

Quote:
When it comes to Portal Masters, Eugenie is a bookworm. She was most comfortable in the basement reading area of the library at her school. When Eugenie came through the Portal to Skylands, Master Eon recognized her strengths and allowed her full access to the Academy Library. Master Eon discovered that Eugenie possessed the ability to analyze the strengths of Skylanders, and utilize these strengths to benefit allies.

Eugenie uses her skills to buff the attack stat of Skylanders.


Quote:
When the weak are in need of help, George's strength shines through. When George arrived in Skylands, the powers in the land sensed his strong heart. George was gifted with this power, an ability suited to his strengths. George is now able to create a solid shield of earth and stone that can compete with any other shield in Skylands.

George uses protection skills to guard ally Skylanders.


Quote:
Ryeo has always had an interest and connection with fortune-telling, especially tarot cards. When she became a Portal Master, she was excited to learn about the future and to be gifted this ability through the powers of Skylands. Unfortunately for her, the only ability she received was to throw cards as she wished. Ryeo was disheartened, but Master Eon and Hugo gifted her special tarot cards that fit her powers and were suited for use in battle. After much practice, she is now able to throw the cards to block the enemies' sight.

Ryeo’s skills weaken her enemies.


Quote:
Bruno has spent so much time around clocks, he could almost control time itself. When Bruno enters the battle, he becomes a fearsome ruler of time. All Skylanders' skills require the consumption of mana and a cooldown time once they're used, but Bruno's watch makes this immutable rule disappear.

Bruno uses his skills to help in battle by controlling time.


No new information on a potential time frame for release was provided.

Thanks to panseit on the Skylanders: Ring of Heroes subreddit for spotting the post.

As part of Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled's final Grand Prix event, the Gasmoxia Grand Prix, Spyro is getting another new skin: Space Spyro!

[User Posted Image]

Like last time the skin will be available for purchase in the Pit Stop, the Grand Prix runs from the 20th of February to the 22nd of March.

Although this is the last Grand Prix it may not necessarily be the last Spyro content for the game as there are plans to keep adding new characters and skins.

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.

[User Posted Image]

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!

[User Posted Image]

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.
