In the past few weeks we have seen a couple leaks online that confirm that the fifth installment of the Skylanders franchise will go by the name of Skylanders Superchargers. The first solid source to put this information out there was a stunt performer named Travis Pastrana. On May 5th Travis posted on his Instagram (which has been taken down) an image that stated how he had been working with Activistion on a game called Skylanders Superchargers.
On Saturday May 30th Amazon.com put up a few listings of Skylanders Superchargers for the PS3, PS4, Wii U and few other game systems which was taken down in a matter of hours. The Amazon listing said how the starter pack included a New Portal of Power, 2 Skylanders: Spitfire and Super Shot Stealth Elf, 1 Skylanders vehicle: Hot Streak and 1 collection poster featuring the complete set of Skylanders Superchargers and their vehicles.
Now with these leaks online in the past, today we learn just a little more about Skylanders Superchargers thanks to a blogger that attended the Momtrends event featuring Skylanders in New York City. This is what we learned today:
- The release date of Skylanders Superchargers will be September 25, 2015
- The Portal of Power from Trap Team WILL work on Skylanders Superchargers
- The starter pack includes 2 characters and an addition to the game
And now for the icing on the cake; we Actually got to see a real image of one of the new and upcoming characters for the new Skylanders Superchargers game!
This Skylander looks great! I can not wait to learn more. According to a few sources online the wait will not be much longer being that tomorrow, June 3rd Activision will reveal all this information stated above and more 🙂
