Skylanders Imaginators wish Happy 20th Anniversary to Crash Bandicoot

Happy 20th Crash

Today was a big celebration of the 20th anniversary of Crash Bandicoot. The Skylanders are celebrating because he will be a guest star in the upcoming Skylanders Imaginators. Skylanders Imaginators launches on October 16 in the US and in addition to Crash Bandicoot the game will also have his arch-nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex. There will even be a very special Crash themed level called Thumpin’ Wampa Islands, which pays homage to the original Crash and includes the classic TNT boxes, crabs, hazards, temple ruins, Wumpa Fruit, exploding fruit and more. You can see Crash racing around that level in this video.

The Thumpin’ Wampa Islands level will be available on the PS3 and PS4 starter packs at launch and will be released in a special Adventure Pack for all platforms later this year.

As you know, Skylanders Imaginators offers two fun ways to play:
• Create your own Imaginators with inifinte options using Creation Crystals
• Collect Sensei characters to level up your Imaginators and blow enemies away with powerful Sky Chi attacks

This past week I posted about the inclusion of Dr. Neo Cortex into Skylanders Imaginators. Well, to celebrate today’s Skylanders announcement, Emmanuel Sanders (wide receiver for the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos) took a break from training camp today to play Skylanders Imaginators with the newly announced playable Dr. Neo Cortex figure and Crash Bandicoot level called Thumpin’ Wumpa Island!

Crash Bandicoot is the football star’s favorite character from childhood, so he was excited to be one of the first to check out the playable Crash characters and level at his home in Colorado.

While playing the game, Emmanuel acted like a big kid and, in between laughs, mentioned that he can’t wait to play the game this fall with his son, Princeton. Emmanuel also had a chance to design his own character and chose one with enormous muscles and an orange and blue color pattern. He was really impressed with the new Kaos toy and all of his powers and moves!

Emmanuel said that Skylanders is so much fun and bringing toys and imaginations to life “is one of the coolest things that I’ve ever seen in videogames and I LOVE videogames.”

This week also showed us a brand new Skylanders Imaginators trailer featuring Kaos. Continue reading Emmanuel Sanders Reveals Crash Bandicoot Level for Skylanders Imaginators
