Former Sony mascot Crash Bandicoot hasn’t spoken much, if at all, in the video games he’s been in over the last two decades. He’s talking plenty in the new Skylanders Academy cartoon that premiered on Neftlix last week.
After a bit of a stumble with last year’s Superchargers, Skylanders is back and ready to go toe-to-toe with Disney Infinity in the creativity side of the toys-to-life battle. Had the competition not folded, Imaginators would have given it a run for its money.
While Skylanders Imaginators is all about creating your own custom characters, they’d be nothing with Sensei characters to show them the way and give Activision new figures to sell. We’ll be seeing a lot of new faces during E3 this week, including Ember, the fire-based Sensei of the Sentinel class.
