If you’re like me and desperate for a new Skylanders game, Skylanders Ring of Heroes will hopefully provide some satisfaction. Developer Com2uS revealed the expanded, fully animated cinematic trailer for the upcoming mobile game during Paris Games Week in France.
The trailer features the familiar faces of Eruptor, Spyro, and Stealth Elf as the Skylanders battle against each other in an arena, while sporting some fancy gear and armor. Master Eon officiates with a sheep, naturally. Then Kaos shows up to wreck, well, chaos.
“It’s not only an honor but also a great pleasure to finally present our full version trailer of Skylanders: Ring of Heroes,” said David Mohr, Gamevil Com2uS. “The Skylanders IP is known all over the world but in Europe and particularly in Paris, it’s something special to have a live show to present that trailer to a big audience. The direct feedback of the Skylanders Fans means a lot to us and of course, we are looking forward to seeing their reactions.”
Skylanders Ring of Heroes is currently holding a global pre-registration event on iOS and Android devices. Pre-registering will reward you with 200 gems and 10,000 gold. Android users can earn an additional 50,000 gold when pre-registering on Google Play.
Pre-registering also works toward the global goal of 1 million users. The global counter recently hit the halfway mark of 500,000 users, which results in a bonus 1,600 gems. If the pre-register number reaches one million, everyone will receive 30 Spyro Soul Stones, which summon Skylanders star Spyro.
Skylanders: Ring of Heroes is touted as the first Skylanders RPG on mobile. Gameplay features turn-based battles between teams of Skylanders and villains. It includes over 80 characters to summon, level up, equip, and evolve.
A launch date has not yet been set, but is expected to release this year. It will be free-to-download with optional in-app purchases.
