Skylanders Imaginators will let gamers make their own character

Activision just announced a new installment in the Skylanders franchise.

Skylanders Imaginators is set to be released in October and will give players the opportunity to create their own character.

Gamers will be able to choose their Skylander's appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases and musical themes, amongst others.

Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, commented: "Since we launched the very first Skylanders game, we have received countless letters and drawings from kids all over the world sharing their vision for their own Skylanders. No matter how in touch with our 'inner kids' we might think we are as adults, nothing comes close to the endless creativity that springs from the mind of an inspired kid.

"We've turned this year's game into the ultimate blank canvas for kids' imaginations so they can create and play their own Skylanders."

Skylanders Imaginators is already available to pre-order and will be launching on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will of course support all toys from the previous Skylanders titles.
