Lightseekers is a story-rich action adventure RPG built for mobile and tablet (available for Mac/PC in 2017) that fuses fantasy and reality through the hi-tech FusionCore, the powerful mini-computer embedded within each action figure and the "brains" behind the smart connected toys. The FusionCore completely eliminates the need for cumbersome NFC portals allowing the game to seamlessly connect to TOMY's 7" collector-quality, articulated smart action figures. The character's unique attributes, accomplishments, social circle and lineage are stored in perpetuity. In other words, the game automatically remembers the last character played, enabling on-the-go play without figures in the state that it was when it was last connected. Any progress made is then updated when the FusionCore is reconnected.
Lightseekers also offers next level interchangeable accessories. Equipping a weapon or accessory onto an 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 magically control their in-game character by moving the toy.
TOMY will unveil its Lightseekers line at the American International Toy Fair in New York City in February of 2017.
