Skylanders SuperChargers will be the latest entry in Activision’s toys-to-life franchise when it releases this September.

The game will introduce vehicles-to-life which can be used in-game on land, the sea and even in the sky.

Players can expect vehicular combat, embrace treacherous rapids and take part in aerial dogfights through enemy swarms.

Developed by Vicarious Visions, Skylanders SuperChargers offers more than vehicle-based gameplay, as players adventure on-foot, solve puzzles, play mini games, take part in activities and platforming, and more through all-new environments.

“We created the toys-to-life category and have continued to lead it by bringing new innovations and new magic to the genre with each and every game. First we brought action figures to life, and now we’re bringing vehicles to life with Skylanders SuperChargers,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

“We love making these games because in order to do it well, you have to constantly tap into your inner kid.”

The game also introduces the new SuperChargers class which can pull off powerful attacks using all-newweapons. The heroes also have special in-game abilities which will help the player fight Kaos.

Twenty new SuperChargers character toys and 20 new vehicle toys will be available for the latest entry in the series.

Here’s more on the vehicles straight from Activision:

Players will have the ability to customize all vehicles in-game with super cool modifications and upgradeable weapons. For the ultimate gameplay experience, players can pair a SuperCharger Skylander with its signature vehicle to create a SuperCharged combination, unlocking an exclusive mod that revs up the performance of both the vehicle and character. Not only are the vehicles playable in the game, but also many feature moving parts, making them fun to play with outside of the game.

Additionally, Skylanders SuperChargers supports all 300+ Skylanders toys from previous games, enabling all Skylanders characters to pilot land, sea or sky-based vehicles.

Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs are now available for pre-order at select retailers worldwide for $74.99 in North America, which comes with two new Skylanders characters, one Skylanders vehicle, a newly designed Portal of Powe and the full game.

The game will be made available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation,3, PS4, and Wii U September 20 in North America, September 24 in Australia/New Zealand and on September 25 in Europe.

A “different, unique adventure” will be made available on 3DS and Wii.
