As I have said now for a few weeks that the new game is going to have a vehicle aspect to it. I have seen screen shots from computers and various other things stating that the new Skylanders game will indeed be called Skylanders Superchargers. Today Amazon leaked a bit more info about the game and it has the Skylanders Fans going crazy! (See images below).
Many sadly have said they will not be buying the new game because of the Vehicles being added. I think that this is going to be a great game I am very interested to see how Vicarious Visions handles this installment. A few questions have come to mind like, will all the figures be compatible now that vehicles are being introduced? Will we finally be getting an online multi-player function? (God I hope so) What will happen to the Traps? Will we still be able to play with our favorite villains? Will all of this tracking down traps be all in vain? I seriously hope not that would really suck! If traps are still playable in this game I wonder how the traps and vehicles would interact?
I really do hope that the vehicles don’t take away from the adventure style gameplay we have been accustom to. With so many new Toys To Life titles coming out this year many of us are scrambling trying to pick a side for some strange reason. Why pick sides there is enough room for all the titles and from my experience playing all the other titles they all bring something new to the genre.
I remember when Infinity first hit the scene tons of people were saying they were getting out and into infinity. A nice amount of those same people came back to Skylanders that tells you something. I am going to wait until I see gameplay of the game and review the new game before I make my decision on this being a good or bad game. I could never just stop playing Skylanders I have invested way to much time into this franchise to hop on the bandwagon and jump ship (such a Kaos thing). I’ll be a Skylanders supporter until the game is no more and even after because that is what loyal fans do.
I hope that there are more people out there that are excited about this game than not, but if not I’m not worried you will be back the SKYSIDE always wins.
Update: No release date or pre-orders available yet. Did not show console listings for XBOX One or PS4. Link has been taken down.
Ziotec shared some interesting info in our Facebook group and I thought I would share. I know a lot of you have wondered when new Skylanders were being released on your side of the water so this should help. As soon as we get an update on Steam Punk I’ll update the post. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

I saw this today in one of the groups that I follow thought you may like it I’ll just let this image marinate here. It pretty much speaks for itself and confirms we will be seeing vehicles in the new game. Does this make you more interested in buying the game or are you out? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. Shout out to @TravisPastrana from Nitro Circus for the teaser and @familygamertv for the photo. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I saw something on darkspyro.net by user motosada stating that both King Cobra Cadabra and Steam Punk Shrednaught will be released on June 27th by way of the inventory computer system (I assume he works there). He does not state if it is an exclusive to Game Stop stores or not but that is the date in the computer.
I contacted my GameStop contact and they confirmed that the information provided is correct, but they are not able to be reserved at the moment and they didn’t know exactly when they would be but it should be soon. This info has me “All Fired Up!” I can’t wait June is going to be a great month for us Portal Masters and Skylander Addicts. I will update you all on this when they are available for pre-order. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I have been super busy with my personal life so I haven’t had as much time to post as I normally would (sorry guys) but I’m here to give you an update on a figure I have waited some time to add to my collection Gnarly Barkley! According to myskylanders.de and skylanderscharacterlist.com he is set to be released by Toys R Us on June 3rd 2015. He looks amazing! See for yourself by checking out the image below.
I am sure that this will not be exclusive to TRU so expect to see this at the usual retail stores a week or two after its TRU release. Honestly I’m keeping fingers crossed hoping that GameStop will release it a few days before to try to beat the competition (wishful thinking). I’m gearing up for this release and so should you this will be a great gift for Portal Masters young and old. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
