E3 2016
#1
E3 is here, or already had started behind the scenes. And with Imaginators being there with all new content (images, videos, trailers..) and characters, it's best to collect that information and videos in one place for the time being. Youtubers, like skykids, coinoptv, asianguygamer, and myself will be attending E3 to gather info and videos on the game. Gamespot, IGN and including Kotaku, will be covering the game as well.

If more new information is found, post them here.

New video footage is found on Ambush, the Life Knight Sensei.

Wait, what? I haven't been paying attention to E3, so I'm not clear on what you mean by that. HD remakes of PS Store?

If it turns out to be a HD collection, then that throws a spanner in the works. Crash is a confirmed Skylander (Sensei) but this contradicts with Spyro who HASN'T had a standard game since Skylanders. He may very well still have a game of his own in the works... And I wouldn't be surprised if Vicarious Visions are the ones working on it.

It's good to see that they have stayed true to his original gameplay. Then new additions also look cool and flashy; I'm starting to change my mind about this game... if only slightly.

New gameplay information on Crash -  http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/06/1...-skylands/

Playstation Blog Wrote:The Model

Our early focus was to nail Crash’s look. We wanted to make him feel at home in his new high-definition surroundings, while staying as true to his original design as possible. To kick off this exploration, we dug deep (and I mean DEEP) into the archives for inspiration. We even unearthed a pile of ancient, mimeographed documents of the original “Willy the Wombat” concepts that were shared with Vicarious Visions ten years ago when we began to work on the franchise. (We may or may not have unleashed a 32-bit mummy on the office in the process. The good news is he can only travel on one axis, so he’s pretty easy to avoid.)

Crash’s look has evolved over the years, but these timeworn images made it clear that the lines and proportions of his character have been consistent since day one. With that in mind, we began churning out concepts for Crash’s in-game look while we brainstormed how best to translate his energy and personality into a real-life toy.

We went through sooooo many versions of Crash’s toy pose. It had to capture everything about Crash that makes him special and also represent him as a true member of the Senseis in Imaginators. We brought in lifelong Crash fans to evaluate our sketches, early 3D prints, and test figures at every stage to make sure we were creating a toy THEY would want for their favorite furry protagonist. When we were happy with Crash’s pose and look, we did a final consistency pass and just like that… Crash was ready to run amuck in the Skylanders Imaginators line-up.

After finalizing Crash’s model, it was time for us to bring him to glorious, fully-animated, 3-D life. It was important that we stayed true to how he moved in his earlier incarnations, from his edginess, trademark wackiness, and swagger as he navigates the world, all the way down to his idles and timeouts. If you want to see one of those fancy throwbacks, just set the controller down for a second and see what happens! But, that’s just the beginning of our obsessive attention to detail:

Crates!

No Crash game would be complete without these ubiquitous wooden boxes. Jump on the TNT Crates to blow them up, or collect the Bazooka Crate to get a rocket launcher and jetpack that allows you to attack from high in the air!

The Yo-yo

Every Sensei in Skylanders Imaginators has a devastating Sky-Chi attack, their most powerful move. Crash’s Sky-Chi attack is to use his yo-yo to yank his enemies into a spin attack!

Spinning

Crash Bandicoot would not be complete without his signature spin attack. Rest assured that we have heard your silent demands and delivered on this classic move.

Life System
  • Anyone who has played a Skylanders game knows that the game uses an RPG-style health meter, while the Crash games have traditionally used a life system. It was important to us that we kept the spirit of that feature while folding Crash into the Skylanders game system.
  • To achieve this, we built a special Life System just for Crash in Skylanders Imaginators. When Crash is defeated in our game, he reappears with an animation inspired from the past Crash games!
  • Not only that, when Crash throws crates around he has a chance of throwing one that holds up an extra life.

Aku Aku
  • Crash doesn’t speak (most of the time) and we wanted to make sure that he communicated in a way that was familiar to fans but wouldn’t confuse new players and soon-to-be new fans!
  • Enter Aku Aku! He provides a voice for our silent Bandicoot when the player needs to communicate with him.
  • Aku Aku has been Crash’s best friend and guide since day one. We would have been remiss if we’d excluded him.
  • As a Sensei, Crash has some special abilities he can impart on player-created Imaginator characters. Aku Aku handles all the voice stuff.
  • Not only that, when Crash is defeated, he is shielded for a short period of time by the wise and wooden Aku Aku!

Here's a bit of info from E3 so far.
  • Crash is a Life Brawler Sensei, is available in the PS3/PS4 edition of the Crash Edition Starter Pack but is playable on ALL consoles.
  • Spyro and Stealth Elf were mentioned as two of the several fan-favorites that will appear as NPCs in Imaginators.
  • Two original Senseis revealed: Ember (Fire Sentinel) and Ambush (Life Knight)
  • Soul Gems return
  • Elemental Zones return
  • Troll Radio returns
  • Each Sensei you first add in the game will raise the level cap of your Imaginator

Wait... Troll Radio returns?!
OK, I'm sold!! Forget about my negativity before - I'm sold!

"This is Troll Radio with your DJ Chill Bill, reporting with breaking news. New Skylanders known as the Imaginators have been showing up recently and fighting evil. All trolls are advised to fight back and stand victorious... or run away if you don't want to be defeated."


We need someone to create a Chill Bill account that simply reports Skylander news... while also making the obvious necessary joke. My life is incomplete without Chill Bill!

I do have a question though any comments of a 3DS Version or why there's not going to be a 3DS version?

It's been confirmed since day 1 that there isn't going to be a 3DS version.

Do you think there might be A 3DS game in the near future? Not necessarily Imaginators, but maybe something slightly different?

My gut feeling: nope.
