Skylanders SuperChargers announced
Next entry in the toy/game franchise will feature vehicles
Activision has announced Skylanders SuperChargers, the next entry in the toy/game hybrid franchise.
Skylanders SuperChargers features a brand-new class of heroes, called SuperChargers who are distinct with fresh moves, powerful attacks and all-new weapons. These SuperChargers also have special in-game abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos. Twenty new SuperChargers character toys and 20 new vehicle toys will be available.
Players will have the ability to customize all vehicles in-game with modifications and upgradeable weapons. Players can pair a SuperCharger Skylander with its signature vehicle to create a SuperCharged combination, unlocking an exclusive mod that revs up the performance of both the vehicle and character. Not only are the vehicles playable in the game, but also many feature moving parts.
As has usually been the case, Skylanders SuperChargers supports all 300+ Skylanders toys from previous games, enabling all Skylanders characters to pilot land, sea or sky-based vehicles.
The game's storyline focuses on Kaos' latest attempt to rule Skylands. In his efforts to take down the Skylanders, Kaos has unleashed his newest weapon - 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 a fleet of land, sea and sky vehicles with the power to travel through the reign of destruction to stop Kaos.
Skylanders SuperChargers will be available on September 20th, 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U system, and a different, unique adventure will be made available on Nintendo's Wii system and the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system.
