Me and boys headed off to London not to see the sights but to check out the new Skylanders game. WHOOP WHOOP!
We were greeted by Shelf Elf of course we went in for some hugs! Also every child's dream of sweetie heaven, a sweet table, its was like Alice in Wonderland meets Mario a table full of mouth watering treats. Our little fans could have T-shirts made-up, with there favourite Skylander characters. There was a fun photo booth, where you could pull lots of wacky faces, we had lots of fun, happy 'Skylanders fun'.
However my little cherubs had their eyes set mainly on one thing... SKYLANDERS!!! We were on the top floor of the ACE Hotel over looking London, the room was was bright and did I fail to mention it was also decked out in PlayStations! PlayStations loaded up with our favourite game, Skylanders Supercharges. Within a matters of minutes I had lost the boys, controllers in hand, gaming away like to two pros. I found this very funny, someone asked James if he needed help, the look James gave was like I'm a professional I'll have you know. The answer was actual, I have already competed this level.
Once all the children had settled down, everyone gathered together to hear the latest news!!!
Just incase if you haven't heard yet, what have you been upto, where have you been? It seems the makers of Skylanders have heard our cries and they have taken Skylanders to another level. After listening to their fans advice, Skylanders 'Imaginations' is launching in October 2016.
Every year Skylanders has changed the gameplay, keeping us on our toes and our gamers eager with new characters with their charming little Skylanders adapting to new talents every year.
This year is going to be no different. However times are really changing. Can you imagine, building your character, adding all the details it make it as unique as you, its eye colour, body shapes, arms size, legs, voice, colours. Well, we will be able too, even picking their abilities, strength, stamina, what weapons they use. I personal believe this will be big step towards adult gameplay. This is going to bring out gamers creative juices, whatever their mind wants to make will be possible, there are going to be so many possibilities.
This year the new additional to the game is called 'Creation Crystal', when the crystals are placed on the portal, you can build your Imaginator. There are only 10 types of elemental Creation crystals to collect.
Good bye Giants, Swapforces, TrapTeam and Supercharges... Hello Build what you want. We will still have the key elements of play,
Skylanders Imaginators introduces Skylanders Senseis, all-new heroes who represent 10 powerful Battle Classes such as Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger, Brawler, and more.
