Skylanders Imaginators is one of the launch games for Switch, and Activision has a new trailer up for the game. You can check it out below.

Off-screen footage has emerged showing the Switch version of Skylanders Imaginators. View the gameplay in the video below.

Since 2011, Activision has shipped new Skylanders games on an annual basis. But if a new report from Liam Robertson is spot on, the series may not be receiving a new entry next year – or in the near future for that matter.

Robertson (who accurately leaked information about Skylanders SuperChargers in 2015) claims that development on Skylanders 2017 ended, in large part due to a trend in declining game sales and interest for the franchise. Viewership for the new Skylanders Academy show on Netflix is apparently not up to snuff, nor are merchandise sales. Activision apparently has no new Skylanders game in the works currently. Additionally, primary developer Toys for Bob is waiting to hear from Activision about its future.

Here’s the full report from Robertson:

A new trailer has been released for Skylanders Imaginators, featuring a Halloween themed character for the game. You can watch the video below.

Today, Activision announced the “Countdown to Creation” event for Skylanders, a month-long celebration for Skylanders.

The release of the free Skylanders Creator mobile app kicks off the festivities. It allows fans to create Imaginators from scratch or transfer characters from Skylanders Imaginators on consoles. The app can then be used to immortalize Skylanders Imaginators through the following physical forms:

3D Printed Imaginator Figure – Fans can bring their character creations from the digital world to life in the physical world as a 3D printed Skylanders Imaginators figure. The custom-printed Imaginator arrives in full color, posed on a base and enclosed in a clear protective dome — making it a true collector’s item. The figure is fully playable in the Skylanders Imaginators console game! Quantities are limited for 3D figures.

A couple of outlets posted new gameplay of Skylanders Imaginators today. Videos from both GamesBeat and GameSpot can be seen below.

There hasn’t been too much going on with Crash Bandicoot in recent years, but that’s starting to change. Crash and Dr. Cortex will both have their own figures in Skylanders Imaginators and will be playable in the game. Additionally, a special Crash level is being created in the form of Thumpin’ Wumpa Island.

Vicarious Visions’ Jennifer O’Neal spoke about Crash’ representation in Skylanders Imaginators with Gamereactor, noting that it’s an opportunity to reintroduce the series “to a new generation of fans”. She said:

“As you know it’s the twentieth anniversary of Crash Bandicoot so what better time to reintroduce them to a new generation of fans […] I can play as Crash or Neo and my kids can create their own character and play alongside me and that’s what Skylanders is about, bringing families together, playing co-operatively and it’s really fun. Crash and Neo have their own level, it’s called the Thumpin’ Wumpa Island. There’s a lot of fun gameplay that’s really nostalgic for the player that’s played the original Crash Bandicoot games, there’s Wumpa fruit you collect, there’s crates you smash and bounce on and there’s even a really cool area in the level that’s like the old boulder chase levels.”

Wii U owners can obtain the Skylanders Imaginators Thumpin’ Wumpa Islands Adventure Pack this holiday. It includes the Crash and Dr. Cortex figures as well as the new level.
