Along with the brand new Sonic Boom and Prism Break Skylanders there are also two new variants of existing Skylanders, High Noon Trigger Happy and Obsidian Hot Head, who not only look different but have a different Ability to their regular counterparts.

Other new stuff the game has added include some help dialogs from Buzz as you go into menus for the first time as well as explanations of what the status effects do next to your cards when playing.

To collect cards you can either purchase the Battle Packs and Booster Packs physically in stores ($9.99 and $4.99) or you can purchase them digitally from within the game itself. In game you can earn coins to buy those packs by completing quests and missions or you can just choose to directly purchase coins with real money.

Skylanders Battlecast, the mobile trading card game first announced back in August last year, today added Australia to the small selection of countries it is officially available in.

If you're living in Australia or New Zealand you should now be able to find the physical cards in stores and the free app on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon appstore. I would definitely recommend making sure your mobile device can actually run the game before diving headfirst into piles of booster packs.

Based on Activision's award-winning Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Battlecast is a new, free-to-play mobile card game where players build their ultimate deck of cards, master strategic card combinations and use them in never before seen battles! Starting today, players in Australia and New Zealand can head to retail stores to purchase physical card packs to begin their epic journey to become a champion of Skylands.



For the past few months the app has been in a soft launch with the developers still actively adding new content, for example just this past Wednesday they completely overhauled how you progress through the story missions and added even more ways to earn new cards. The game isn't quite 100% complete just yet but it is certainly shaping up well.

Quote: Press Release

Activision assembled a team of experts across video game design, physical card game design, pro card players and top card artists to develop Skylanders Battlecast. Unlike traditional trading card and mobile battle games, Skylanders Battlecast offer fans impressive graphical fidelity in the form of a 3D-rendered gameplay experience that is incredibly fun and highly strategic.



If the dates provided by various different international distributors are correct at the latest we should see Skylanders Battlecast getting its full release in North America and Europe by the end of May.

The mystery of the missing cards has been solved with the announcement of Skylanders Battlecast, a brand new card battling game for mobile devices that can make use of digital cards you can buy in-game and physical cards that you can purchase at retail.

For Skylanders Battlecast, players can purchase physical card packs at retail, as well as digital card packs in-game. Players will experience a magic moment by scanning cards with their mobile devices and watching them come to life. Additionally, fans can scan two character cards to create animated duels in which players can physically interact with the characters.
