Have you ever played Skylanders and wished beyond exploring the level to find hidden upgrades and Soul Gems that you could just fly around for a bit or go underwater? Just when you didn't think Skylanders could get any cooler, Activision is coming out with Skylanders SuperChargers, a game that will include vehicles that you can use to explore Skylands in the air, on land, and in the sea.
That's right, the coolness of Skylanders characters now includes a whole group of vehicles that are just as unique and awesome as each figure in the Skylanders toy to game line.
The new game features 20 vehicle designs and types - race cars, motorcycles, boats, tanks, helicopters, jets, submarines and more. A new class of heroes have also been created 20 SuperCharger characters that feature fresh moves, powerful attacks and all-new weapons.

"We created the toys-to-life category and have continued to lead it by bringing new innovations and new magic to the genre with each and every game. First we brought action figures to life, and now we're bringing vehicles to life with Skylanders SuperChargers,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “We love making these games because in order to do it well, you have to constantly tap into your inner kid. What kid hasn’t imagined epic vehicles with amazing powers and dreamed about the adventures they could have with them? Skylanders SuperChargers makes those dreams real.”
