Online Multiplayer Announced for Skylanders SuperChargers

Skylanders has always been more of a family experience, but that family is about to get a whole lot bigger. Activision has announced at Gamescom two Skylanders franchise firsts — racing and online multiplayer gameplay on console. Whether fans prefer co-operative play in Adventure Mode or competitive multiplayer with up to four friends in Racing Mode, Skylanders SuperChargers has plenty of action. Skylanders’ all-new Racing Mode, playable in Land, Sea and Sky environments, features supercharged racing combat, layering in even more depth and excitement to the game’s online multiplayer component.

Skylanders SuperChargers will feature the following modes:

– Single-player Adventure Mode
– Online and local co-op Adventure Mode
– Local 2-player head-to-head racing in split screen
– Online competitive racing with up to 4 players

Better yet, fans can augment their Skylanders SuperChargers experience with a complementary, dedicated racing combat game — Skylanders SuperChargers Racing — for the Wii and 3DS. All-new tracks, augmented with power-ups, boosts, hazards and more, offer up to 50 different and exciting gameplay experiences. On Nintendo 3DS, gamers can enjoy competitive multiplayer via local play or online with up to four players.
