To celebrate Skylanders announcement, Emmanuel Sanders (wide receiver for the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos) took a break from training camp to play Skylanders Imaginators with the newly announced playable Dr. Neo Cortex figure and Crash Bandicoot level called Thumpin’ Wumpa Island! Crash Bandicoot is the football star’s favorite character from childhood, so he was excited to be one of the first to check out the playable Crash characters and level at his home in Colorado.
While playing the game, Emmanuel acted like a big kid and, in between laughs, mentioned that he can’t wait to play the game this fall with his son, Princeton. Emmanuel also had a chance to design his own character and chose one with enormous muscles and an orange and blue color pattern. He was really impressed with the new Kaos toy and all of his powers and moves!
Emmanuel said that Skylanders is so much fun and bringing toys and imaginations to life “is one of the coolest things that I’ve ever seen in videogames and I LOVE videogames.”
