Air Strike Swoops Into Skylanders Imaginators
Activision has unveiled Air Strike as another Sensei character that will appear in Skylanders Imaginators.
In total, the creativity-driven adventure will introduce 31 Skylanders Senseis, new heroes and reformed villains that will be aligned under 10 powerful Battle Classes such as Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger, and Brawler.
Before he began training Brawlers, Activision shares that Air Strike had trained birds – the rare Blue Zephyr Falcons in particular. These were once among the most endangered species in Skylands, but Air Strike taught them how to defend themselves from predators.
News about his help spread, and birds from all over Skylands would come to learn the techniques that he taught. Despite their newfound defensive prowess, the Blue Zephyr Falcons were still hunted by a band of evil trolls that liked to user their eggs in blue-bacon omlettes.
So, Air Strike struck back. After journeying to Zephyr Mountain’s peak, he single-handedly took down the trolls and rescued the stolen eggs. Once returned to their mother, one of the eggs hatched to reveal and energetic Falcon that would not leave Air Strike’s side. He named him Birdie and they now user their skills to train Skylanders, despite Master Eon’s crippling fear of falcons…
The Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack is now available to pre-order, and includes Master King Pen, Golden Queen, a Creation Crystal, a Portal of Power and a copy of the game.
Skylanders Imaginators will launch on Wii U in Europe on October 14th and North America on October 16th.
