Does anyone want to guess what Sunday is? Is it the day that Ferdinand Magellan set sail for the first time?
The birthday of Sophia Loren? Could it be the anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival?
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.
“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.
