Activision plans to unveil this year's Skylanders game later this month, according to an invite the publisher sent to Polygon recently.

The invitation, which was sent to our news editor, Brian Crecente, included a personalized video message featuring two of the opposing forces in the Skylanders universe: Eon and Kaos. You can watch the clip above. Activision will hold a media event in New York on April 23 to debut "the latest innovation from the franchise that created the toys-to-life category."

Three main Skylanders games have been released, including the franchise's debut: 2011's Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, 2012's Skylanders Giants and 2013's Skylanders Swap Force. The publisher said earlier this year that Novato, Calif.-based Toys for Bob will handle development on the 2014 title; Toys for Bob also made Spyro's Adventure and Giants. Activision's main competition in the genre is Disney's Disney Infinity; the latter company recently sent out an invitation for its own special event, this one related to Marvel Entertainment.
