Beenox will develop the Wii version, n-Space will develop the 3DS and Vita versions, and Vicarious Visions will develop the other versions. Square-Enix and Toys "R" US will develop a Japanese version of the game, which will be released sometime in mid-2016.
Portal of Power
Once again, the game uses a pedestal called the Portal of Power to bring real-life action figures into the video game world. The technology inside the portal has not changed, so you can still use the portal you got with SWAP Force Starter Pack in Dimensions. However, there are a few notable differences between the new portal and the old one. First of all the portal is now color-shifting instead of black and the elemental symbols on the portal now glow along with the portal.
Around the time the Giants diappeared, the Dimension Warriors have been around. Their mission was to not only protect Skylands, but the entire universe as well. Every 1,000 years all of the planets and stars align perfectly, so perfectly that the universal energy from the alignment not only kept balance in Skylands, but also the entire universe! During the last alignment, the energy was so strong that it actually ripped holes in time and space opening portals to other dimensions in the process. The Skylanders had to keep monsters and evil villains from coming through the portals and after a long battle the portals finally closed. But, since the heroes came into contact with the energy of these dimensions plus the energy from the alignment they became one with the powers of the dimensions. Turning them into... the Dimension Warriors! However, after the portals closed a chain reaction started causing a huge explosion that propelled the Skylanders away from Skylands and to Earth. Meanwhile, Kaos is back with yet another evil plan and now Portal Masters everywhere must find the Dimension Warriors and send them back home to save Skylands and the entire universe! Kaos' Dad will make his debut in this game. The 3DS version once again has a different storyline and since the Vita version is also being developed by n-Space, it will have the same story as the 3DS version.
A mobile version of the game titled Skylanders: Evolution is currently in development by Vicarious Visions and is scheduled for a spring-2015 release. The game will serve as a prequel to Skylanders: Dimensions.
Skylanders: Dimensions will introduce 16 Dimension Warriors who have powers similar to the SWAP Force Skylanders, except their powers are based off of the powers they got when they were fused with the energy of the different dimensions instead of their lower halves. The Dimension powers are: Sound, Light, Electricity, Freeze, Shrink, Fast Foward, Slow-Mo, and Invisible. Only Dimension Warriors with the correct power can enter special Dimension zones in the game.

The console starter pack will come with Avalanche, LightCore Burn, and Tik-Tok Countdown, the Portal of Power, and the game itself. The 3DS and Vita starter packs come with Moodini, LightCore Wind-Bat, and Arctic Chill (an exclusive character), a smaller version of the Portal of Power, and the game itself. The Portal Owners Pack will return for people who have SWAP Force and don't want to buy another portal. However, that pack only comes with Avalanche and the game (or if you have a 3DS you'll only get Moodini and the game). The Portal Owners Pack will not be available for the PlayStation Vita version.
The gameplay will be the same as the last three games and all toys from Spyro's Adventure, Giants, and SWAP Force will be fully playable in this game. Content for Giant Skylanders such as boulders and chains will return in this game, and SWAP Force zones will also return. Skylanders can still jump, but they now have the ability to double jump as well. All Skylanders can now be upgraded to Level 25. Elemental Gates are now Elemental Portals. These are simply just in-game Portals of Power with a certain color on it and an elemental symbol over it (Light Blue=Air, Blue=Water, Brown=Earth, Green=Life, Orange=Tech, Gray=Undead, Red=Fire, and Purple=Magic). There will also be new LightCore zones. These zones are similar to the Elemental zones and just like the Heroic Challenges, they are set against the clock, so you'll need to be fast and have nerves of steel. It doesn't matter if the LightCore Skylanders you use are from Giants, SWAP Force, or Dimensions. Even though the Giants light up while on the portal, they cannot enter the LightCore zones since they are not considered LightCores. Dimension Warriors' powers also work while outside of a Dimension zone (i.e. Brain Freeze can freeze everything on screen to use to his advantage) but they only last a few seconds. After finishing a level, all of your Skylanders will earn more XP (whether if you used them in the level or not or even if there's only one Skylander on the portal) depending on the number of tasks completed and the number of stars you've earned. The game will also be 3D compatiable. Not just for the 3DS, but also for certain other consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Players can also create their own in-game Portal Master and customize their very own hub world with items they collected throughout the game. Heroic Challenges will also make a return. This game will also feature online gaming for most of the console platforms. All of this and more will bring the Skylanders series to a whole new dimension (literally) so get ready for an exciting adventure Portal Masters!
The online gaming feature is brand-new in the franchise and is exclusive to the following consoles: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U. With the online feature, up to 4 players at a time can interact with each others' Skylanders. You can just simply hang out at your hub world or at your friends' hub worlds. The four of you can go head-to-head in one of the many battle modes exclusive to online play or team up and go against a team of four more players. You can even take your friends' Skylanders for a little joy-ride.
The music for the game will be composed by Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, James Horner, Elton John, Lorne Balfe, The Magnificent Six, Guy Moon, Tim Rice, and YouTuber Connor Hickling.
