Activision's Skylanders Imaginators brings new customization to game

Boot Camp feature for Monday, July 4, 2016

Skylanders is bringing more customization to its game franchise for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your techstination for gadgets and gear.   Skylanders games combining physical toys with on screen games have become a three billion dollar franchise for Activision since their introduction five years ago.   What’s new this year?   Skylanders Imaginators.    Associate Producer Lou Studdert…

“In Skylanders Imaginators you’re going to get to use what we call a Creation Crystal which when placed on the portal and interacting with the game allows the player to create, for the first time ever,  from scratch, their own Skylander, which we call an Imaginator.”

It arrives later this year….and is available for pre-order now.   Beyond that, Activision is partnering with Netflix on an animated adventure series based on Skylanders.   It is slated to premiere this fall as well.   You can find us with a full archive of interviews and reports at BootCamp.com.    I’m Fred Fishkin.
