Skylanders amiibo - Nintendo E3 2015 Stream -01

The two biggest names in Toys to Life games are joining forces: Skylanders and Amiibo. Nintendo and Activision announced today at Nintendo’s E3 Direct show the upcoming game Skylanders Superchargers. At least two Nintendo characters will be making their way to the game.

Joining Skylanders will be Turbo Charger Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser, as well as the vehicles they’ll be able to use in the game.

The partnership between Activision is at the same time a surprise and a no-brainer. They’ve even taken the next logical step: These toys are both Amiibo and Skylanders toys. By twisting the base, you can use them with one game or the other.

The game doesn’t have a release window yet, but Skylanders Superchargers could signal a huge change in Toys to Life games.
