Quote:SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is delivering the innovation of Skylanders® Imaginators to the next wave of gamers when the highly-anticipated Nintendo Switch™ launches March 2017. This March also marks the debut of some of Skylanders Imaginators’ most anticipated characters, as well as a brand-new expansion pack. Now Portal Masters all over the world can engage in new content, toys and experiences with the award-winning Skylanders Imaginators this spring!

No Portal of Power®? No problem with Nintendo Switch. Skylanders Imaginators for Nintendo Switch provides gamers unique ways to play, including the introduction of a vast digital library that allows players to easily load and store 300+ toys from the Skylanders® franchise* directly to the new home gaming system. The arrival of the digital library empowers players to take their Skylanders Imaginators adventure on-the-go whenever and however they want.

“Since Skylanders Imaginators and Skylanders™ Creator launched, fans have made more than 25 million Imaginators using the expansive creation tools in the game and app. We couldn’t be more excited to extend that experience to Nintendo Switch players,” said Paul Reiche, co-founder and studio head, Toys for Bob. “We’ve seen some amazing Skylanders created, and as kids’ collections continue to grow, we’re proud to offer more depth and variety to fans in ways never before possible with this new system.”

Skylanders Imaginators has ignited the imaginations of fans everywhere, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support their gameplay experiences with Nintendo Switch, along with new toys and content coming this year,” said Josh Taub, senior vice president of Skylanders Product Management, Activision. “There are now more than 300 million Skylanders toys in the hands of fans², which equates to nearly two toys sold every second since Skylanders® Spyro’s Adventure launched. And with the new season of the animated series Skylanders™ Academy slated for Netflix this fall, we are thrilled that fans can enjoy playing, watching and creating Skylanders no matter where they are.”

Building on the franchise’s signature gameplay and collectible toy experience, Skylanders Imaginators pushes the boundaries of innovation and imagination with the upcoming release of the Cursed Tiki Temple level pack. The Cursed Tiki Temple level pack takes kids on an all-new adventure as they unlock more than 100 new offerings for their Skylanders Imaginators – a first in franchise history! The pack comes with Sensei character Wild Storm who will unleash a new level to players; a life Creation Crystal; and an Imaginite Mystery Chest all for the suggested retail price of $29.99 on March 12 at participating retailers nationwide.

Skylanders Imaginators gives kids an unprecedented level of choice -- including appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and much more -- to create the most unique Skylanders characters they can imagine. This spring, fans can also be on the lookout for the arrival of new heroes in the world of Skylanders Imaginators, including Skylanders Sensei Grave Clobber. Once a great pharaoh who ruled the Golden Desert long ago, Grave Clobber was buried by his seven jealous brothers in an underwater tomb while he was sleeping. He eventually rose from his watery grave, clobbered each of his brothers and became the perfect choice to be a Sensei trainer for the Brawler Class. This mummy may surprise you with his range of powers, packing a serious punch as well as telekinetic powers!

Skylanders Imaginators for Nintendo Switch will be available for the suggested retail price of $59.99. The game is rated E10+ by the ESRB. The Cursed Tiki Temple level pack and new Skylanders Senseis will support all major gaming platforms including Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U™ system; Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft; and PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment systems. Skylanders Creator is a free app that players can download from iOS and Android app stores for select mobile devices. For more Skylanders information, visit: http://www.skylanders.com.

Skylanders™ Academy, the new animated comedy-adventure show inspired by the Skylanders franchise, debuted on Netflix on October 28, 2016. Jam-packed with humor and heart, Skylanders Academy offers epic action for kids of all ages. The Netflix original series season one debuted in 190 countries, with a second season planned for late 2017.

YEAH! I knew it would though. I'm SO excited! This "digital-library" of characters thing seems interesting, but it's the only solution to playing Skylanders on the go.

This announcement makes me angry... for all the right-ish wrong reasons though.

Revealing that you don't NEED a Portal of Power for the Nintendo Switch port. So only NOW has it sunk in that people don't want to have to use the Portal to play the games!
Hopefully this is showing signs of the future for the franchise... namely, that they do something different. VERY different!

Oh, and a NEW level? You evil *censored*!

Has anyone seen any demos for it yet? I was wondering if you use both Joycon to play it, or one.

the portable aspects make me want this for a 3rd copy of the game ( I already have it on Xbox One & PS3 )...but I really don't want or need the extra King Pen & Golden Queen. Hopefully they'll either have a version to purchase without them or my cousin lets me know she's getting her son the 360 version so I can tell her to the the portal owner's pack & I'll give him the 2 figures from the Switch starter...

Interesting! However, I'm not going to buy the Switch Starter Pack because I have the PS4 Starter Pack for my PS4 Pro.

The Switch starter pack is not doing very well in pre-orders on Amazon. It's at rank #1,413 right now. Wow.

When you have anticipated games that are coming to Switch, it can be expected.

All too true; when you compareSkylanders: Imaginators with, say, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, that new Mario game - whatever it was called, I don't remember - a Fire Emblem/Dynasty Warriors cross-over and a long awaited now Bomberman game, there's quite a lot more to be excited for.
Especially when Imaginators didn't really spark peoples imaginations in the end...
