The following comes from a GameReactor interview with Toys for Bob's Paul Reiche and Vicarious Visions' Jennifer O'Neal...
"As you know it's the twentieth anniversary of Crash Bandicoot so what better time to reintroduce them to a new generation of fans [...] I can play as Crash or Neo and my kids can create their own character and play alongside me and that's what Skylanders is about, bringing families together, playing co-operatively and it's really fun. Crash and Neo have their own level, it's called the Thumpin' Wumpa Island. There's a lot of fun gameplay that's really nostalgic for the player that's played the original Crash Bandicoot games, there's Wumpa fruit you collect, there's crates you smash and bounce on and there's even a really cool area in the level that's like the old boulder chase levels."
Times have changed in the land known as the Oasis of the Harvest Goddess. Many people used to live in Skytree Village, and the land was lush and green. However, the power of the Harvest Goddess gradually began to wane, and the land became parched and dry.
It's up to you to revive the seven Skytrees in order to give the Harvest Goddess her power back, and in turn, bring life back to this desolate land! Along the way, players will meet a new cast of characters (with a few returning faces!), alongside a brand new art style, new character models, and more.
With user-friendly tutorials, players will immediately be able to jump into the thick of things, customizing their farm by raising and lowering the land, creating rivers, ponds, and more. Upgraded tools will assist farmers in shaping the land more efficiently, and afterwards they can kick back and relax in their boat to do a spot of fishing! It won't be long before they'll need to weigh anchor to care for their newest herd animal: the Poitou donkey!
