Activision has announced that a new Skylanders mobile game, Skylanders Creator, is on the way soon for iOS. The free app gives Portal Masters the chance to create characters from the forthcoming Skylanders Imaginators console game on-the-go.
The app features robust creation tools similar to that in the console game, where players can create Imaginators from scratch, or even transfer their created characters from the console game to the app with state-of-the-art audio technology.
For the first time in the history of toys-to-life gaming, players will be able to use Skylanders Creator to turn their Skylanders Imaginators into various physical forms, including the following:
- 3D Printed Imaginator Figure – Fans can bring their character creations from the digital world to life in the physical world as a 3D printed Skylanders Imaginators figure. The custom-printed Imaginator arrives in full colour, posed on a base and enclosed in a clear protective dome - making it a true collector’s item. The figure is fully playable in the Skylanders Imaginators console game! Quantities are limited for 3D figures.
- Imaginator Card – Fans also have the option to order high-quality, custom made trading cards emblazoned with a full colour image of their creation and fully playable in Skylanders Imaginators. Players simply place the card on the Portal of PowerTMand watch their creations come to life in the videogame.
- Imaginator T-Shirt – Portal Masters can show off their Imaginators on a premium, full- colour, customised T-shirt featuring an image of their very own creation, the character’s Battle Class, element and name!
The app will have Timed Imaginite Chests that will offer new creation parts at certain times of the day, as well as daily Sensei Chests with special parts that are unique for each Skylander, a collection menu where you can access all your created Imaginators, My Imaginators’ Creation Gallery, as well as the chance to share your created characters with players all over the world.
“Since we first pioneered toys-to-life, fans have been clamouring for ways to express their love for Skylanders. Now with the Skylanders Creator app and the launch of Skylanders Imaginators, the sky is the limit,” said Paul Reiche, co-founder and studio head at Toys For Bob. “This year, Skylanders is putting the power of creation in the hands of fans in ways never before imagined, and we can’t wait to see the millions of Imaginators that will be dreamed up by our Portal Masters around the world.”
