Story

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, Master Eon had seen the warning signs and assembled a special team of Skylanders to pilot an unstoppable fleet of vehicles with the power to destroy the reign of destruction! With Skylands facing its greatest threat, the Skylanders must pilot their supercharged vehicles over land, under sea, and through the sky to stop Kaos!

Characters

Once again all existing toys will work with the new game but of course there are many new toys for you to purchase. The new lineup is made up of 20 new SuperChargers (that's 10 (or 12) completely new characters and 10 (or 8) reimagined returning characters) and matching 20 Vehicles. Any Skylander can use any vehicle but each Vehicle has a specific paired SuperCharger that SuperCharges the vehicle when they are used together, this changes the appearance of the vehicle and gives it a boost.

Unlike previous games the base this time is signified by a large engine with the element bursting out the exhaust.

The two Nintendo characters, Donkey Kong and Bowser, are only playable on the Wii U, Wii, and 3DS versions of the game. They have a secondary function as an amiibo which means they can be also used in some other Nintendo games.

Vehicles

There are 20 vehicles to collect, each one matching a particular SuperCharger but can be driven by any Skylander, the matching Skylander just gives it a boost, a SuperCharge if you will. There are three types of vehicle: Land, Sea, and Sky.

The only mandatory vehicle sections are Land based so you can still complete the entire story with just the contents of the Starter Pack. In co-op you both control the same vehicle with Player 1 driving and Player 2 on the weapons, although you can switch at any time.

While all of your existing Skylanders can drive all of the vehicles only the new SuperChargers can upgrade and modify them.

Trophies

Trophies are used to unlock new terrain specific racetracks and they each allow you to play as four villains from that terrain type.

Land Trophy

Aside from the Dark Edition's Kaos Trophy you will get the trophies in special "Racing Action Packs" which contain a SuperCharger, their vehicle and the trophy. The first example is Deep Dive Gill Grunt with his Reef Ripper and the Sea Trophy, the second pack contains Astroblast, his Sun Runner vehicle and the Sky Trophy.

Online

Online racing and co-op has been added to the series for the first time. You can race online against friends or just randomly selected people. While the Wii version does not have an online component the 3DS version does.

Portal

A new Portal of Power is included in the Starter Pack but, for the first time since Skylanders Giants, you can instead choose to use your previous Portals to play with. If you have no interest in the new Portal you can purchase a digital Portal Owners Pack, the Portal Owners Pack will provide you with the game and two digital toys, Instant Spitfire and Instant Hot Streak, for use if you haven't got a Portal connected.

The new Portal does have a Trap slot but the use of villains is quite diminished, instead of playing as a villain it just provides your vehicle with a boost and gives you a corresponding Skystone for the new minigame Skystones Overdrive.

Platforms

SuperChargers is set for release on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Wii, 3DS, and iPad. The Wii and 3DS versions will be titled "Skylanders SuperChargers Racing" and will be a different experience compared to the other editions.

There will be Dark Editions of the Starter Pack available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, and Wii U.

V A sky magic should be a magic carpet, maybe the next magic will be some sort of genie. I also can't wait to see some new lights and darks.

V Just because he dislikes 2 features of it doesn't mean he hates the game itself.

VV Well you said it is a ripoff and the portal is stupid and on the Trap Team page you said Stealth Elf looked stupid.

As much as I hate vehicles and vehicle related games, I gotta say I'm pretty excited over this game. Some great new stuff and requested features are finally coming true with Superchargers, and I look forward to the release of it, which is only 9 days after my birth day. So I know what I'm getting myself!
