Rev your engines! Skylanders®, the #1 kids' console franchise worldwide
is taking to Land, Sea and Air with Skylanders® SuperChargers
on September 20 in North America. Skylanders SuperChargers
expands upon the franchise's signature gameplay to introduce
vehicles-to-life -- an entirely new way for fans to experience the magic
of Skylands. For the first time, kids can explore and navigate the
mountainous terrains, deep sea environments and big blue skies of
Skylands like never before with amazingly detailed vehicles, many of
which feature moving parts that will play in the real world and come to
life in the game via the Portal of Power®.
The trailblazing vehicles-to-life innovation of Skylanders
SuperChargers is realized when players take helm of powerful,
tricked-out land, sea and sky vehicles. Skylanders SuperChargers
is an unprecedented high octane action-adventure videogame where fans
have the freedom to speed across Skylands' roads in vehicular combat,
race down roaring rapids and engage in aerial dogfights as they barrel
roll through enemy swarms.
In addition to vehicle-to-life, Skylanders is packing some major star
power with the introduction of two of Nintendo's iconic characters --
Donkey Kong and Bowser -- as guest stars in Skylanders SuperChargers.
The characters, along with their specially created vehicles will be
available exclusively in Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs
for the Nintendo platforms.
In Skylanders SuperChargers, Kaos' quest to rule over Skylands
reveals his most sinister weapon ever – a massive "Doomstation of
Ultimate Doomstruction" capable of eating the sky itself. Fortunately, a
special team of Skylanders known as the SuperChargers has been assembled
to pilot an incredible fleet of vehicles with the power to travel
through the destruction – over land, sea, and sky!
Skylanders SuperChargers introduces 20 new SuperCharger
characters and 20 new vehicles, while also supporting all 300+
