MORE ABOUT THE GAME:
Battle Gongs: Feel like putting Sensei abilities to the ultimate test? Well, that’s what the new Battle Gongs are for! Once a Battle Gong has been rung, your Sensei must fend off waves of powerful bad guys to earn some hefty rewards. And I do mean hefty! You can find Battle Gongs scattered throughout the levels.
Sensei Shrines: Although Senseis are the most powerful Skylanders to have ever faced Kaos, they still have the potential to grow even stronger. Unlock their awesome Ski-Chi powers by activating their battle class Sensei Shrine and watch as your Sensei blows enemies away with devastating attacks. Sensei Shrines can be found in each of the levels.
Battle Class: The combination of ten battle classes and ten elements allows you to create any Imaginator you want. So why not make them all! Maybe you’ll need a Fire Ninja in one area, but a Dark Ninja in another. Maybe you’ll fight Doomlanders with a Light Swashbuckler supported by an Earth Knight. Try limitless combinations as you choose the abilities and upgrades that best fit your fighting style.
Collectibles: With well over 1000 creation pieces to outfit your Imaginator, why not collect as many Imaginite Chests as you can to fuel your creative needs? Chests are readily earned and available throughout each level. There are other ways to earn creation pieces as well. Want more voice options?
