Developer Toys For Bob Publisher Activision Format 360, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One Release October 14
Activision is looking to push player creativity as the big selling point of the newest Skylanders. To this end, Imaginators provides hundreds of individual digital parts to build your own hero. You’ll be able to tailor their movesets, special abilities and catchphrases, with further customisation options unlocked through additional figures in the form of Senseis, each of which belong to a different battle class. These include a fire knight, a militaristic penguin and, on PlayStation formats, Crash Bandicoot, presumably hoping for a Spyro-esque career revival. Despite being arguably the best
Skylanders game to date, SuperChargers saw a marked downturn in sales; given children’s fickle tastes, it’s hard to know whether or not the decision to turn its back on its central gimmick will prove a shrewd move for an ailing series.
