If you thought that Skylanders couldn't possibly get any better...couldn't possibly add any more fun to the video game experience or couldn't possibly come up with something ultra cool once again, then think again!
In October 2016, Portal Masters will be able to unleash their imaginations like never before when Skylanders Imaginators launches in North American! Skylanders Imaginators gives kids (and adults) the power to create their own Skylanders and bring them to life for the first time in an all-new adventure with a compelling storyline, puzzles, battles and a brand new lineup of heroes and villains. Skylanders Imaginators will offer fans so many more choices than ever before with infinite possibilities to create. Fans will be able to create their own Skylanders with endless combinations of powers, abilities, catch-phrases and much, much more and will in turn, have hours of replayable fun!
Still want to use your other Skylanders characters? No worries! Skylanders Imaginators will support the 300 plus character toys from all previous Skylanders games including Skylanders SuperChargers, Skylanders Trap Team, Skylanders SWAP Force TM, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Spyro's Adventure so that kids can enjoy in the real world and in the virtual game world. As Skylanders players add the new games and characters to their growing collections, they will also expand their in-game experiences.
To celebrate imaginations coming to life, Activision is kicking off the new "Skylanders Art-to-Life Contest." Starting NOW...Portal Masters are invited to submit drawings of their own created Skylanders for a chance to have their characters represented in the Skylanders Imaginators game at launch. Awesome!
To participate, fans must simply draw their imagined Skylander and submit it via Instagram or Twitter with the dedicated hashtag #SkylandersArtContest, or to Activision directly at SkylandersCommunity@Activision.com
The judging panel will include Toys For Bob, who will determine a grand prize winner. For more information, including rules, visit Skylanders.com/SkylanderArtContest
