Skylanders SuperChargers Make Skylands Accessible By Air, Land, and Sea

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.

As usual, all Skylanders from previous versions like Spyro's Adventure, Giants, Swap Force, and Trap Team will be able to interact with this newest version and drive all the vehicles. Skylanders SuperChargers will be available on Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment systems, Nintendo’s Wii U™ system, and a different, unique adventure will be made available on Nintendo’s Wii™ system and the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system. Additionally, the complete Skylanders SuperChargers experience will be available on iPad®.

The game will be available on September 20 in North America, September 24 in Australia/New Zealand; and on September 25 in Europe.

"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.”

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!
