• Vehicles-to-Life – For the first time, players can take their Skylanders vehicles straight from the real world into the videogame via the Portal of Power to explore the land, sea and skies of Skylands. (AND PS – the cars work like actual toys beyond the portal)
• New Heroes – A brand-new class of Skylanders, known as SuperChargers are ready to buckle up and throw down with special in-game abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos. For the first time in Skylanders history, two of Nintendo’s iconic characters — Donkey Kong and Bowser — will guest star in Skylanders SuperChargers. BOOM!

We LOVE playing Skylanders together! Liam and I go to TOWN (and yes, I’m the mom that buys the book so I can beat each level at 100%). I’m not shy! I admit it.
