Activision Announces New Skylanders Mobile Game – Skylanders Battlecast


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!
