New Superchargers Variant Surfaces


Hey Addicts!

This may be old news to you all that follow tons of groups like me, but for those of you that haven’t heard the news a new variant has popped up on Ebay. This variant is also a patina so we now have 2 of this particular variant to be on the hunt for. The first being the High Volt variant which not many of us have been lucky enough to find in the wild. The newest variant release is Patina Lava Lance Eruptor.

skylanderaddictsblog

I am hoping that I will get my hands on one of these guys, but I’ve only seen chase figures in the wild one time and have never since gotten the chance to again (I am hopeful).  Are you a chaser? Do you own any chase figures? If you could have any chase figure what would it be?

I wonder who will be the next patina variant? Will it be another Skylander or will it be a vehicle? I kind of would like to see a patina version of the Shark Tank. What vehicle would you like to see get a patina makeover? Well that’s it for now folks be sure to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and show us some love on Instagram. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Skylanders Superchargers Delivers Real-Time Online Multiplayer For IOS


skylanderaddictsblog.com

Hey Addicts!

We all have anticipated the release of Skylanders Superchargers for IOS/Apple devices. Last year we got the chance to play a full version of Skylanders Trap Team that could be played on your favorite console and Apple device. Well this year Activision is kicking it up a notch by introducing real-time online multiplayer gameplay with Skylanders Superchargers. The new release not only allows players be able to take the game on the go, but now we will also be able to play online against other Apple users.

Take a look at the press release below for more details. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

skylanderaddictsblogNovember 9, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), announced today that Skylanders®, the pioneers of the toys-to-life category, will further the company’s leadership in the mobile arena with Skylanders SuperChargers‘ launch on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV.  The Skylanders SuperChargers AAA game experience with console-quality graphics* is now available for compatible iPad, and for the first time ever, select iPhone and iPod touch devices, as well as the new Apple TV. The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV is now available in North America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand.

skylanderaddictsblog

Developed by Vicarious Visions, Skylanders SuperChargers for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV presents even more value to fans with a new save feature using iCloud, offering seamless continuity across the Apple ecosystem. Players can simply log into their iCloud account, and the game will save its progress to iCloud automatically.  Now, fans can enjoy Skylanders SuperChargers with ease and flexibility, starting the game in their bedrooms on the iPad or iPod touch, picking it up where they left off in the living room on the Apple TV and then taking it on the road in the backseat of mom’s car on their iPhone.

skylanderaddictsblog

For the first time, Portal Masters can compete in four-person online multiplayer racing or two-person co-op adventure between devices through Apple’s Game Center. Players on Apple TV can also engage with others online who are on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

skylanderaddictsblog

“Last year, fans loved how they could play the same incredible game on iPad as on other platforms. This year we are giving Portal Masters even more ways to play their favorite game as we expand Skylanders SuperChargers to Apple TV, iPhone and iPod touch,” said Josh Taub, senior vice president of product management for Skylanders at Activision. “Fans are able to play Skylanders SuperChargers on the compatible Apple platform of their choice, whenever and wherever they want.”

skylanderaddictsblog

The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV includes everything necessary for fans to play Skylanders SuperChargers out of the box, complete with exciting racetracks and captivating environments that push the technological and visual boundaries of gaming. The Starter Pack comes with the AAA game, the Portal of Power® with embedded Bluetooth® controller, a built-in stand, two Skylanders SuperChargers characters and a Skylanders SuperChargers vehicle.

skylanderaddictsblog

Additionally, fans can play digitally without the Starter Pack contents. When playing digitally, they get for free two SuperCharger characters, Instant Spit Fire and Instant Hot Streak, upon download of the app, while in-app purchases unlock digital versions of unique characters and vehicles from Skylanders SuperChargers.  Portal owners can download the app for free, play the first level and purchase the full game digitally.

skylanderaddictsblog

“Skylanders took the toys-to-life industry one step further when they brought their game to iPad last year,” says Laurie Schacht, co-publisher of The Toy Insider. “By bringing this year’s game to Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Activision is enabling fans to play Skylanders SuperChargers in a truly compelling way on the platforms they’re on. This is the kind of magic we’ve seen consistently from the franchise since Skylanders created a brand new way for kids to play with their toys.”

skylanderaddictsblog

Skylanders SuperChargers can be played in a variety of ways:
  • Skylanders Game Controller — Fans can play the game just like the console version using the Bluetooth® portal and toys with the custom Bluetooth® Skylanders game controller included in the Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack.
  • MFi Extended Game Controller — An MFi Extended Game controller can be used for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV – a great option for multiplayer.
  • Apple TV Siri Remote — For the Apple TV, when players purchase the Starter Pack, Player 1 can use the Skylanders Game Controller and Player 2 can join in using the Siri Remote for great co-op action. The Apple TV Siri Remote also can be used by players who download the game and experience the first level for free, or by players who buy the full digital version of the game through the In-App Purchase.
  • Touch Controls — For iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, players have the option to use just on-screen touch controls.

skylanderaddictsblog

Skylanders SuperChargers expands upon the franchise’s signature gameplay to introduce vehicles-to-life, an entirely new way for fans to experience the magic of Skylands.

Solving The Nightfall Mystery


September 28, 2015

 

Hey Addicts!

Some of you may have wondered where the wave 2 Skylander figures are or when will they be released. Well I can only answer one of those questions sort of. If you were lucky enough to get a Nightfall figure you may have come into the issue of the figure not working on the portal. According to sources the figure has been recalled due to this issue, which also leads me to believe that other wave 2 characters were also held back to make sure the same issue was not happening with any of the other toys.

skylanderaddictsblog

This is the official response from Activision:

Question: My Nightfall toy is not Registering in Skylanders Superchargers. What’s happening?

Answer: Since the launch of Skylanders in 2011 Activision has been committed to delivering high-quality toys to our consumers. It has come to our attention That our software is unable to recognize the Skylanders Superchargers Dark Element character Nightfall. As a result, we stopped shipment of a majority of the toys Before They arrived at retail. We will be reissuing the toy as soon as Possible, and consumers Should find Nightfall on shelves before the end of the year.

If you have received a non-functional version of the Nightfall toy, please call 1-844-HELP-EON for assistance from Activision. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause Skylanders fans.

skylanderaddictsblog

This is the first time in Skylanders history that a recall has been issued.This isn’t the first time portal masters have had issues with a figure unfortunately it happens. There is good news though if you downloaded the Day 1 patch it fixes the issue. Bad news for Wii players there is no patch which is why some are assuming that is the reason figures still were recalled.

You can read more about the Day 1 Patch here.

skylanderaddictsblog

If you are one of the unlucky folks to have gotten a faulty Nightfall and the patch still hasn’t fixed it call the help line and see what can be done to solve the issue. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

4 Things You May Not Know About September 20th


Does anyone want to guess what Sunday is?  Is it the day that Ferdinand Magellan set sail for the first time?

Actually, it is all of those things.  However, to a Skylander Addict, it is something else completely.  It is the day that so many have been anxiously awaiting for what, I’m sure, feels like an eternity.  It is the date that Activision is going to (finally) release Skylanders SuperChargers.

skylanderaddictsblog

“Remember when you were a kid and pretended that your toy cars came to life, zooming around your living room on the most epic racetracks of your imagination?” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Well, we are about to bring that fantasy one step closer to life with Skylanders SuperChargers. We are reimagining toys-to-life by bringing race cars to life, along with helicopters, motorcycles, jet planes and submarines, as you race through Skylands and compete against other players for the first time. Our fans are going to love playing this game. I know I do.”

As if this wasn’t exciting enough, Skylanders recently joined forces with Max Chilton, just in time for the season finale of Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires.  Chilton is a fan of the franchise, and recently raced a Skylanders themed race car.

Are You Ready To Get Supercharged?


skylanderaddicts

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.

skylanderaddicts

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.

skylanderaddicts skylanderaddicts skylanderaddicts

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.

skylanderaddicts

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.
