You’ll rush through various terrains to unlock that next enigmatic character. There are elemental types to consider, abilities to open, and the endless joy of just collecting them. In a world where Pokemon cards are so last century, Skylanders are the newest bragging rights among gamers.
ONLINE MULTIPLAYER SHENANIGANS

Team strategies and rivalries can form globally, making it more than a game. It’s worldwide digital diplomacy or destruction—your choice.
IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT BRAWN; BRAINS MATTER TOO
