As they did like with Skylanders Trap Team, Activision is also releasing an iOS version of Skylanders SuperChargers which promises the “full game experience” about a month after the launch of the console versions.
If it’s anything like the surprisingly playable Trap Team experience, Skylanders SuperChargers for iOS devices should be pretty damn good. Android players are unfortunately be out of luck however, because there is no mention of compatibility this time.
The Skylanders SuperChargers iOS Starter Pack will include a wireless portal and Bluetooth gamepad, 2 figures and a vehicle, and the game is confirmed to feature cloud-based saves via Game Center and even the online co-op and racing functionality found in the console versions.
Check out some media and the press release below.
