Portal Masters can now make the Skylander characters of their dreams in Activision's Skylander Imaginators.

The game is the latest in the toys-to-life genre from developer Toys for Bob and for the first time in a Skylanders game lets players choose their body parts, size, catch phrase, powers, colors, theme music and so on of the game's characters thanks to the new Creation Crystal feature.  Skylander Imaginators also contains new gameplay and a new storyline.  Also new to Imaginators are 20 new characters and 11 new villains.  PlayStation 4 users get even more than that thanks to the platform exclusive inclusion of two iconic PlayStation characters: Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex.

“From the day we created Skylanders, we have received thousands of letters from kids all over the world sharing ideas for their ideal Skylander.  The creativity and imagination that this game inspires in kids is overwhelming,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision.  “And Skylanders Imaginators was designed to harness all of that creativity.  It's the game we've always wanted to make, and the game kids have always wanted to play.”

Released alongside the Skylanders Imaginators video game is the free-to-download Skylanders Creator mobile app.  The app lets users create their own Skylander characters on the go with the same functionality found in the console game.  Once a character is created, users can then bring it to life by ordering a 3D printed and fully playable Skylanders toy or a 2D "Imaginator Card" of it.  Users can even have a t-shirt made featuring their created character.

Skylanders Imaginators is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
