Skylanders: SuperChargers Will Take the Land, Air and Sea This SeptemberJust hand over your wallet now.
Activision has announced the next installment in the Skylanders series with Skylanders: SuperChargers, introducing vehicles-to-life as an entirely new way for fans to experience the magic of the Skylands.
At the helm of powerful, tricked-out land, sea and air vehicles, Portal Masters can engage in a high-octane action-adventure by speeding across Skylands’ roads in vehicular combat, race down roaring rapids and engage in aerial dogfights as they barrel-roll through enemy swarms for the first time.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, Skylanders: SuperChargers offers a story-driven gameplay experience, filled with vehicle-based and on-foot adventures, combat, puzzles, mini games, activities and platforming, set within a variety of all-new compelling environments.
Skylanders SuperChargers features a brand-new class of heroes, called SuperChargers who are distinct with fresh moves, powerful attacks and all-new weapons. These SuperChargers also have special in-game abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos. Twenty new SuperChargers character toys and 20 new vehicle toys will be available.
Players will have the ability to customize all vehicles in-game with super cool modifications and upgradeable weapons. For the ultimate gameplay experience, players can pair a SuperCharger Skylander with its signature vehicle to create a SuperCharged combination, unlocking an exclusive mod that revs up the performance of both the vehicle and character. Not only are the vehicles playable in the game, but also many feature moving parts, making them fun to play with outside of the game.
Additionally, Skylanders SuperChargers supports all 300+ Skylanders toys from previous games, enabling all Skylanders characters to pilot land, sea or sky-based vehicles.
The game’s storyline focuses on Kaos’ latest attempt to rule Skylands. In his efforts to take down the Skylanders, Kaos has unleashed his most sinister weapon ever – a massive “Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction” capable of eating the sky itself! Fortunately, Master Eon has seen the warning signs and assembled a special team of Skylanders to pilot an unstoppable fleet of land, sea and sky vehicles with the power to travel through the reign of destruction to stop Kaos!
Fans can pre-order Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs beginning on June 3 at select retail destinations worldwide for the suggested retail price of $74.99 in North America, which includes two new Skylanders characters, a first-of-its kind Skylanders vehicle, newly-designed Portal of Power and the full AAA game.
The game will be available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS. In addition, the complete Skylanders SuperChargers experience will be available on iOS. Launching September 20 in North America. It will debut September 24 in Australia/New Zealand; and on September 25 in Europe.
