I absolutely loved Skylanders trap team! So when I found out I was going to get
SuperChargers I was super excited. This all new game has a all new Game portal and the design of this one is amazing.
The front is in the shape of an engine and with blue flames coming from the sides. The motor does have a space for the traps that were released in Trap Team. They don't do the same as they did in the previous version but unlock special items in the game. Along the edges in the black are different symbols. The portals are cross compatible between systems and games. You can use previous games version on this game as well which is a great option in case yours gets damaged or lost.
The set I received was the Donkey Kong set. Something I learned after it came that had me saying OMG was that DK doubles as an Amiibo for other games (Like mario cart, Super smash bros). So these sets allow for double the fun!
This Halloween they did a limited edition Fiesta Skylander and I had to have it. It was hard to decide though I almost got the regular color one instead because I loved the colors. After finding out the car was a coffin I had to have it too.
Oh and the cars also double as toys because the wheels spin independently so even more ways to play.I am loving this game and I can't wait to see what skylanders they release next. Until then I am going to be drooling over the Dark set.
Buy them on Amazon or at your local retailer.
