Skylanders SuperChargers Available Now

skylanders superchargers logoSkylanders fans with a need for speed should look no further — Activision Publishing, Inc. is bringing vehicles-to-life on September 20 with Skylanders SuperChargers. Available at major North American retailers nationwide, 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.

“Remember when you were a kid and pretended that your toy cars came to life, zooming around your living room on the most epic racetracks of your imagination?” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Well, we are about to bring that fantasy one step closer to life with Skylanders SuperChargers.

The trailblazing innovation of Skylanders SuperChargers is realized when players take the helm of powerful, tricked-out land, sea and sky vehicles that are playable in both the physical and digital worlds in a high octane action-adventure videogame.
