Lightseekers is an action adventure role-playing game from PlayFusion that integrates video games, smart action figures, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, trading cards, and more. TOMY is the master toy licensee for the line and is manufacturing, distributing, and marketing all of the toys.
This summer, gamers will be able to scan interactive signage and Lightseekers packaging at all Toys “R” Us stores across the country for 3-D augmented reality effects. The game is a story-rich action-adventure RPG (role-playing game) and is available now to download for free on the Apple Appstore, Google Play, and Amazon App Store. The FusionCore, the high-tech, powerful mini-computer embedded within each action figure and the “brains” behind the smart connected toys, eliminates the need for NFC portals, delivering real time two-way interaction between TOMY’s 7-inch articulated smart action figures and the Lightseekers game.
Lightseekers also offers interchangeable accessories that level up as kids play. Equipping a weapon or accessory onto a smart action figure will have an immediate effect in the game and vice versa, opening up new abilities and adventures. In addition, flight packs can be added to any hero, allowing players to control their in-game character simply by moving their smart action figure.
There will also be a standalone physical trading card game, with more than 385 cards at launch, that features a card rotation mechanic and powerful combo cards. Each card, when scanned by the Lightseekers game, also delivers immersive augmented reality experiences, rewards game players, and unlocks powerful in-game abilities.
The digital game, physical trading cards, and smart action figures can each be enjoyed independently of one another for an immersive play experience.
