This weekend when Skylanders SuperChargers releases portal masters everywhere can explore Skylands via land, sea and sky in the adventure mode, co-op play, and the newest addition, head to head racing!
I wrote a little about the new vehicles in my "Momtrends and Skylanders SuperChargers Event" post but here's more about Skylanders SuperChargers, including info about Nintendo characters who guest star in the game.
Skylanders SuperChargers takes kids on a wild ride as they drive the mountainous terrains, dive the deep sea environments and fly the 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®.
Packing some major star power, the game includes two of Nintendo’s iconic characters reimagined as Skylanders -- Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser -- available exclusively in
Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs for the Wii U system, and in Skylanders® SuperChargers Racing Starter Packs for the Wii system and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Skylanders SuperChargers offers story-driven gameplay filled with vehicle and on-foot adventures, combat, puzzles, mini games, activities and platforming, set within a variety of all-new compelling environments. The game features a brand-new class of heroes, 20 new vehicle toys and special in-game abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos.
Right out of the box, the game also features an all-new Racing Mode that blends high-octane, supercharged racing with combat, accentuated by power-ups, boosts, hazards and more.
