SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skylanders® fans with a need for speed should look no further —
Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision
Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is bringing vehicles-to-life on September
20 with Skylanders
. Available at major North American retailers
nationwide, Skylanders SuperChargers takes kids on a wild
ride as they drive the mountainous terrains, dive the deep sea
environments and fly the big blue skies of Skylands like never before
with amazingly detailed vehicles, many of which feature moving parts
that will play in the real world and come to life in the game via the
Portal of Power®. Packing some major star power, the game includes
two of Nintendo’s iconic characters reimagined as Skylanders — Turbo
Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser — available exclusively in Skylanders
Starter Packs for the Wii U system, and in Skylanders®
SuperChargers Racing
Starter Packs for the Wii system and the
Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

“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
. 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.”

Developed by Vicarious Visions, Skylanders SuperChargers
expands upon the franchise’s signature gameplay to introduce
vehicles-to-life — an entirely new way for fans to experience the magic
of Skylands. The trailblazing innovation of Skylanders
is realized when players take the helm of
powerful, tricked-out land, sea and sky vehicles that are playable in
both the physical and digital worlds in a high octane action-adventure
videogame. Skylanders SuperChargers offers a rich
story-driven gameplay experience filled with vehicle-based and on-foot
adventures, combat, puzzles, mini games, activities and platforming, set
within a variety of all-new compelling environments. The game features a
brand-new class of heroes that is distinct with fresh moves, powerful
attacks and all-new weapons. SuperChargers also have special in-game
abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos. Twenty new SuperChargers
character toys and 20 new vehicle toys will be available. Right out of
the box, the game also features an all-new Racing Mode that blends
high-octane, supercharged racing with combat, accentuated by power-ups,
boosts, hazards and more.

Players can also purchase Racing Action Packs that unlock additional
content. A total of three Racing Action Packs, one for each terrain,
will be available for $34.99 MSRP and each will include three special
toys — a SuperCharger, vehicle and villain trophy which unlocks two
exclusive racing tracks for the game. The first of the three packs, the Skylanders
SuperChargers Sea Racing Action Pack
, will be available at launch.

To celebrate the arrival of Skylanders SuperChargers and
the addition of racing to the franchise, Skylanders became the
official partner of racing champion Max Chilton for the season finale of
Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires. Chilton, a 24-year-old former
Formula 1 driver and fan of the Skylanders franchise, blazed the
tracks of Laguna Seca in a Skylanders-themed race car on
September 12-13. “SuperCharged” Chilton shattered Tony Kaanan’s 1997
track record in the qualifying race, broke the race lap record set by
Helio Castroneves in 1996 and ended the season on the Indy Lights podium
for Carlin. Skylanders also “SuperCharged” Enea Bastianini from
the Gresini Racing Team to take the win at the San Marino and Riviera di
Rimini GP in Italy, his first career victory in the Moto 3 World
Championship. Bastianini will take to the track again in his Skylanders
branded race suit at the Aragon Grand Prix in
Spain on September 25-27.

Skylanders SuperChargers is hitting store shelves in time
for the holiday frenzy. Toys“R”Us® predicts the newest
addition to the franchise will be one of their fast-selling games this
holiday season and recently placed Skylanders SuperChargers
on the company’s 2015 Holiday Hot Toy List.

About the Skylanders®

The award-winning, $3 billion Skylanders franchise has sold
through more than 250 million action figures2 since
pioneering the toys-to-life category in 2011 with the debut of Skylanders®
Spyro’s Adventure.
The game originated a play pattern that
seamlessly bridged physical and virtual worlds across multiple
platforms. In 2012, Skylanders® Giants further evolved the genre
and added LightCore® characters to the
collection of interaction figures. Skylanders® SWAP Force,
which launched in 2013, introduced an all new play pattern –
swapability. In 2014, Skylanders® Trap Team
reversed the magic of bringing toys to life by allowing players to pull
characters out of the digital world into the physical world and became
the number 1 kids’ console game globally1.
