Crash Bandicoot will be joined by his nemesis Dr Neo Cortex in Skylanders: Imaginators. The regular antagonist will switch allegiances and fight alongside the Skylanders as mystic warrior able to summon the Uka Uka mask.
Both Crash and Cortex will get figures, and there will be a mission set in the Wumpa Islands. Crash Bandicoot’s inclusion in Skylanders marks the former PlayStation mascot’s 20th anniversary. The franchise is now owned by Activision and there hasn’t been a new console platformer since 2008’s Mind Over Mutant; although the original trilogy is being remastered for release in 2017.
Gamescom also revealed Skylander’s resident baddie, Kaos, is getting a figure for the first time.
