    Also, Ro-Bow in official art. That's something I wasn't expecting to happen even if the series continued, knowing the fates of Wave 5ers.

    Well, the only thing I can say right now is that the image looks really cool, though it could have used characters from all the games.

    I’m definitely intrigued by the fact it features villains as well, except for Kaos of course.
    Wasn’t expecting Dive-Clops either, to be honest.

    Man, I hope this mobile game does moderately well for Skylanders fans. I know Skylanders on mobile hasn't really panned out recently. Also an RPG? Interesting.

    We might not get a good game, but we're still getting some good art. Com2us and South Korean devs in general don't slack off in the art department, unlike a certain other TTL game's intro.

    Turn-based. Has a lamer type of game ever been invented? We can only hope that's not the case. Better to bury the IP forever than turn it into that.

    Wouldn’t be so drastic but if it really is turn-based then I’ll most likely pass this one.

    I’ll still follow the news for discussion and curiosity, hoping they will introduce new NPCs, locations and possibly even Skylanders.

    ...Clicking games? Walking Simulators? FarmVille with raids? Recent Telltale everything?

    You can do WAAAAYY worse than turn-based, and you're dissing GOTY contender Persona 5 from last year. In fact, plenty of amazing games have that, it's just that you can't expect RPG Maker-types to be any fun with no variations whatsoever. For starters, field enemies rather than random encounters, and ways to speed up battles.

    Summoners Wars does have a speed up mode, if you're asking for that. Not as good as Rush Mode in most recent turn-based RPGs, but gets the job done.

    For those not in the know, quarter 3's time frame is July 1, 2018 - September 30, 2018.

    Thinking about it now, it's kind of unfortunate timing for this game to come out. A lot more people are going to pay attention to news/release of the Spyro remakes, and this having to compete with it kinda sucks for it IMO because it's going to get less buzz about it than it normally would for a mobile game.

    Really hoping they'll get in a good bunch of characters per element, rather than just the newest.

    Yes I do mean including Hex and Bad Juju.

    knowing activision mobile games, they'll just throw in the flagships for each element and leave it at that.

    i want to be excited, but it's hard to trust the mobile games after battlecast.
    Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 6282
    #18 Posted: 21:58:37 01/03/2018
    But Battlecast had a great cast and the update was going to add even more REAL fan favorites? Only really bad one was Wind and it still had Whirlwind.

    Also have to say, with the exception of the wings being too large, and the face (I'll never like Skylanders Spyro's face, needs more of a snout IMO), Spyro looks kind of close to his classic look again.

    These are two games that come out for two totally different platforms (mobile - PS4).
    Also, probably this game will be free. The mobile market is full of casual gamers, so I would not worry about that.

    IT'S A SIGN THAT THAT'S SPYRO'S DESIGN IN THE REMASTERS!


    And yeah Skyro's face has always been a bit odd. What sucks is that it can look better by making his jaw protrude out more, like in the new image, but it still needs a it of work. I think in the image, it might be the best he's looked.

    My biggest problem will always be the unibrow. Even in here where the artist clearly worked against it, having the eyebrows meet takes so much away from the design. The snout wouldn't feel so small if you weren't pointed to it every time. Academy is the best design solely because TeamTO made them end at the edges of the snout.

    I know this is a complaint as old as the dinosaurs, but if Spyro's face was less goblin like, I'd love the design more.

    Good to see progress on this! Just to confirm, do we know 100% that the characters in that picture are playable? I've not seen anything that says it's more than a generic placeholder image. They could be NPCs that give quests and sell potatoes for all I know. The same with Chef Pepper Jack, Wolfgang and Kaos.

    One thing I can say though is I totally agree with HIHD about Skyro's new look (and the avatar looks amazing but we need more Kid Icarus, and I'm calling Kid Icarus that because it annoys you, like calling Samus 'Metroid' does everyone else)!

    They usually have playable characters on the art, like with Battlecast. The art that included unavaliable characters was left to the expansion.

    Oh... So turn-based it is.
    No interested, then, at least unless there is more to it like an exploration or adventure aspect.

    Not sure if those are Eruptor and Stealth Elf with some enhanced armor on them or completely new characters from the same species.
    That screenshot is much more pleasant to look at than the Summoner War one, be it for the textures, art style or graphics.

    The alternate outfits are a pleasant surprise, I certainly wasn't expecting them to do that. I think that does show that a lot of effort is going into this project otherwise I'm sure they'd just to the bare minimum to bring in the Skylanders fans. The main worry at the moment for me is micro-transactions, I really hope if they do have them we can pay a bit of cash to remove them because I really wouldn't mind paying, say £9.99 to take them out and make it more balanced.

    I was actually discussing in the forum discord - I wonder if these are based on cancelled Sky 7 concepts? It would've been a VV game, and they already redesigned them twice. If not, Com2us gets props for giving us more Fashionlanders.
