Skylanders: The Adventure Continues is an action 3D Platformer video game developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision. It is the seventh installment in the Skylanders video game franchise and will be released in 2020 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4. It will be available at Walmart, Amazon.com, Hot Topic, GameStop, Target and Smyths UK. It is the sequel to Skylanders: Trap Team and the prequel to Skylanders: SuperChargers, with the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Fred Tatasciore, Billy West, John DiMaggio, Matthew Moy, Laura Bailey, Alex Ness, John Paul Karliak, Matthew Yang King, Addison Holley and Richard Horvitz, among others.

This game should not be confused with Skylanders: World Builders, a fanmade game idea by Blackrhinoranger.

Plot

We find out that Skylands was originally not one planet, but a whole series of planets. Each planet is home to the Celestials, who are the great and powerful beings who created the Eternal Elemental Sources and gave the Giants and the Swap Force their elemental powers before sacrificing themselves to merge the planets into one, great big planet called Skylands, so that the solar system is protected from the Darkness thanks to the Core of Light.

Meanwhile, in his castle, Kaos looks in several history books about the planets of the past and finds out that Pain-Yatta, Grave Clobber, Tae Kwon Crow, Bad Juju and 4 of the 7 Doom Raiders (5 of the 8 if you count Pain-Yatta) onced lived on those planets and tried to take them over until the solar system turned into Skylands, causing the 4 Doom Raiders to form a team with the Gulper, Pepper Jack and Dreamcatcher. As a result, he decides to make an interdimentional portal and travel into different dimensions of the Multi-Verse, finding an ally in each dimension and forming an alliance. Then he would use one of his mother's spells so he can take himself and his alliance back to a time when Skylands was still a solar system and help the eight villains take over all eight planets (not counting Light and Dark). Kaos' Mother overheard this and attempted to stop her son from doing so, but it was too late; Kaos already formed his alliance and they were already on their way. Realizing she needs help, Kaos' Mom heads for the Skylanders and Master Eon (and a boatload of guest stars) and begs them to help her find her son and stop him and his alliance from helping the Skylands outlaws take over each of the planets before he unknowingly destroys not just the Skylanders but also everything else in the present, including his castle, Glumshanks and even Skylands Academy.

Gameplay

The gameplay is really similar to various free-world builder games such as Disney Infinity, Spore, LittleBigPlanet, Super Mario Maker and even Lego Worlds. In Imaginators, you can create your own Skylander, while in this game, you get to create your very own level for your Skylanders. When you place an Elemental World Pack (which is just like an Adventure Pack, but with several adventures instead of just one) on the Portal of Power, you'll get several different choices. Each planet has a 6-level story that shows what happens when Kaos and a select few members of his alliance of that planet's particular element try to team up with one of the Skylands villains. Within those levels, there's hundreds of collectible items you can use to decorate your fanmade level. There's also some bonus missions that can be unlocked after completing the story mode missions on each planet. There is also the "Create Your Level" option that can only be done on an elemental planet. Yet despite being element-themed, anything unlocked on the other elemental planets can be used, but if that object matches the level's element, it gives you a bigger chance of scoring points, currency, and XP (the chances are even bigger if you Skylander matches the element as well). You can also share your creations with other users online (that is, as long as it's not inappropriate and is approved by Activision).

Once you've finished all of the first 48 levels in total, you'll get to unlock the final story level where you'll come face-to-face with Kaos himself. Though the Light and Dark elements were first discovered in Trap Team and each given 8 new basic Skylanders, a Giant, two Swap Force Skylanders, a new Trap Master, two Minis and some guest stars, they're not canon with the main story. Instead, they each have their own, seperate story with their own planets and a few new villains in each, as well as Blaster-Tron and Hoodsickle, respectively. There's even two new elements that make their debut in this game: Ice and Stone. They each have one new basic Skylander, one guest star, one Trap Master and one Mini. They also each have a new Villain and their own Celestials (Elsa from Frozen is the Celestial of Ice, and is pretty much the only guest star Celestial in the game). There's even a Kaos Planet which is made by Kaos' Mother (whom you can play as for the first time, but only on her planet) and introduces the Doom Dragon, a new, never-before-seen Ender Dragon-like villain that not even Kaos has faced before. It is exclusive to the Dark Edition Starter Pack.

Playable characters

There are four types of playable characters (besides Series 2-5 Skylanders, Giants, Swap Force Skylanders, Trap Masters and Minis): Brand-new basic Skylanders and guest star Skylanders (the only 2 types of new characters with their own figures), which can be used on any of the planets, the Celestials, who can only be playable on the planet of their element (on other planets, they give a boost for the Skylanders), and Trappable Villains (who can only be playable once you've trapped them after their boss battles on their planets). Since the Celestials are the guys who made the elements, you can choose what kind of look you want for their powers, abilities and other stuff related to their elements. For example, you could have Porcu-Spine (the Life element Celestial) shoot plants, mice, pinecones, etc. from his staff. Trappable Villains, on the other hand, have fixed abilities that are even stronger than the Celestials' abilities. Not only can they also be used for Villain Quests like in Trap Team, but they can also access Villain-only areas in the story mode levels, which unlock rare items. In addition, all 8 Giants, all 16 Swap Force Skylanders and all 18 Trap Masters from the previous games will work in this game. Therefore, they don't need new figures. Same thing with the Traps.

Trivia

  • This will be the first Skylanders game released at Hot Topic and not Toys R Us, which means Legendary Skylanders will be exclusive to Amazon.com.
  • The toys for this game will have purple bases.
  • The figures for some returning (series 2-5) Skylanders will have different appearances than their original ones.
  • Batarina and Ladybug originated as PJ Masks OCs by DeviantArt user p0ketiger.
  • Merseal, the Ice elemental basic Skylander, seems to bear a striking resemblance to Primarina from the Pokemon franchise.
  • In this game, David Tennant replaces Peter Sallis as the voice of Wallace due to Sallis' death in 2017, while Tara Strong replaces Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as the voice of Gekko due to Breitkopf's retirement in the next year.
    • Additionally, this would be the only time Strong would voice Gekko and Casey Kelp, as the former will be voiced by Claire Corlett for season 4 of PJ Masks, while the latter hasn't been around since the cancellation of Snorks.
  • Due to the guest appearance of Scorpion, this is the first (and currently only) Skylanders game rated T for Teen by the ESRB, as there is mild blood when he attacks an enemy.
  • This is the first Skylanders game where Spyro, Gill Grunt, Trigger Happy, Eruptor, Stealth Elf, Terrafin, Cynder, Slam Bam, Chop Chop, Wrecking Ball, Boomer, Ghost Roaster and Lightning Rod are voiced by Matt Mercer, Darin DePaul, Dave Wittenberg, Jonathan Banks, Audrey Wasilewski, Don A. Battee, Erica Lindbeck, Jim Meskimen, Steve Blum, Ryan Cooper, Ron Funches, John Kassir and Brian Blessed, respectively.
