On Friday last week, we headed off across London bright and early for a special event. I had no complaints from the children about waking up early as they were excited to be going to a Skylanders event.
We didn’t really know what the event was about – being Skyanders was enough. 🙂
We were pleasantly surprised to be introduced to the new Skylanders Imaginators due to launch in October. Now this looks like a game we are going to enjoy more than the ones we have been simply because it creates a world of possibilities. We were shown a demo of the new game and it involves using your creativity to create your very own Skylander. Yes, you heard it right – Your Own Skylander.
Here’s a little more about the game –
Skylanders Imaginators gives players immense possibilities — including appearance, powers, abilities, name, catchphrase, musical theme and much more — to make the wildest Skylanders imaginable. The amazing depth of the creation system could allow for more than a googol distinctive characters.
With the evil Kaos on a new quest to take over Skylands, it’s up to Portal Masters everywhere to create their own Skylanders – known as Imaginators – using the new elementally-aligned toy type call the Creation Crystal. Creation Crystals also allow players to transport their Imaginators to consoles at anytime, anywhere!
Skylanders Imaginators introduces Skylanders Senseis, all-new heroes who represent 10 powerful Battle Classes such as Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger, Brawler, and more. Skylanders Senseis help train created Imaginators by offering a range of benefits including unlocking super-cool Imaginator weapons, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as bestowing Secret Techniques across the Battle Classes. Senseis also have their own unique benefits including the extraordinary ability to unleash Sky-Chi – the ultimate Battle Class super move. There are a total of 31 Senseis, which include some fan-favourite villains who have been reformed and now fight for good.
Fans can pre-order Skylanders Imaginators Starter Packs which includes two new Skylanders characters, a Creation Crystal, Portal of Power® and the full AAA game. Skylanders Imaginatorswill be available on Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment systems and Nintendo’s Wii U™ system.
The game looks awesome and we can’t wait to play it.
Of course, in true Skylanders style, we were treated to a morning of fun with ice-cream, sweets, photo booth opportunity, breakfast and playing the Skylanders games. The children were also treated to a packed goody bag filled with Skylanders goodies. Lucky them!
