These awesome shots were shared with me from my bud in the land of OZ. Thanks Justin once again you are the man! Are you excited about playing the racing mode of the new game? I know I am can’t wait to play with some of you out there finally. Enjoy the images and until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
OMG! It just keeps getting better! If you are an avid Skylanders junkie like myself you where probably jumping on the furniture, screaming “Boo-Ya-Ka!”at the top of your lungs, calling your best friend to telling him game night has just gotten real! No… that was just me? Aw shucks!
On a serious note today Activision unleashed some of the best news ever in my opinion. Not only will we be getting a new Supercharged Skylanders game, but we also will be getting a new mobile game titled Skylanders Battlecast. This new game uses digital and physical cards. SAY WHAT!!! Yup! Activision is holding no punches this year (Sorry competition, not sorry LOL!).
See for me I get the best of both worlds I get a new Skylanders game and a new card game. I have played card games like Magic, Yu-gi-oh, and Pokemon for years. Now I’m really into Hearthstone, which is another Activision/Blizzard game involving cards that is just plain addictive in its own right. So I have high hopes and expectations for this game.
Check out the official trailer and press release below to get the scoop on what we can expect to see from Activision with Skylanders Battlecast. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
“Built from the ground up to bring Skylanders to life on mobile devices, Skylanders Battlecast combines physical card play with mobile gaming in an all-new way,” says Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. “This is our biggest investment, and one of our most magical ideas yet, for the Skylanders franchise on mobile.”
“We are bringing physical cards to life in an exciting new way. Activision has assembled a team of experts across video game design, physical card game design, pro card players and top card artists to develop an amazing new experience,” says Josh Taub, senior vice president, product management, Activision Publishing. “With Skylanders Battlecast, fans can expect the amazing creativity, innovation and fun that Skylanders games are known for delivering.”
Coming in 2016, Skylanders Battlecast will be available via the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

Who is anxiously counting down the days until SuperChargers releases? I know we are here at my house! It has been confirmed by Activision that this release will feature two exciting franchise firsts. First, knowing this release features vehicles, it seems only fitting that it would also have a racing mode.
You can race two player head-to-head locally and with up to four players online. You read that correctly—online. That’s because in addition to racing, this edition is going to allow for online multiplayer mode. Have a friend across the pond who is as much of an Addict as you? Now you can join in the fun together. That has to be one of the most anticipated new features. It is the one area where this game has lacked when compared to other games. It’s great to see Activision finally make this available.
Have a Wii or Nintendo 3DS? If so, you can also play an exclusive, dedicated racing combat game. In your starter pack you will find Bowser and his Sky Cruiser. Have a WiiU? In your starter pack you will find Donkey Kong and his Land Vehicle. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, these figures will also be Amiibo compatible.
Don’t have a Nintendo system? No worries—you can still find Skylanders SuperChargers for your Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and IPad.
SuperChargers hits store shelves September 20 in the US and on September 25 in Europe. Who are you most excited to add to your collection on release day? Let us know in the comments section or on our social sites.
Hey all! How ya doing?
You getting excited much? It almost here!!!
Well the variants are now beginning to pop up a little bit of everywhere, now we know of 4 different variants, YES 4!!!
First we have the Supercharger Frightful Fiesta Variant. He is the latest Skylander to join the Holiday Variants and he looks pretty BA! He is exclusive to GameStop stores you can pre-order him here.
Next up is Steel Plated Smash Hit! His is one gusty squirrel. This variant is exclusive to Best Buy just so get your pre-order in asap! Doesn’t Smash Hit remind you of a Best Buy variant from the past? You can preorder this awesome figure here.
Of course we knew there would be Legendary Skylanders as always, but I was totally surprised to see Jet Vac be chosen again. I wonder why they decide to use him instead of another fresh Skylander? He still looks awesome and of course he is only available at Toys R Us stores pre-order him here.
And finally we have Nitro Stealth Stinger this variant is exclusive to Target you can pre-order this figure here.
I wonder if there will also be variants of Fiestas vehicle to match the figure as well as Jet Vac’s? Will we be seeing a Nitro Stealth Elf? Who else will we see become variants? I’m not sure I can take many more surprises, but on the other hand Activision please keep them coming! Until next time see u on the skyside!
As we know the villains are back in the new game with a twist. Check out the article I posted with all the info straight from Activision here. Thanks to my Aussie mate Justin for sharing these images with me so that I could share them with you. There are many familiar faces coming back like Chef Pepper Jack and Wolfgang but there are some villains we haven’t seen before like Spellslamzer, which has me excited to play this game even more! You can see the images in the gallery below hope you enjoy them. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
