Kaos' quest to rule over Skylands reveals his most sinister weapon ever - a massive "Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction" capable of eating the sky itself. The Skylanders must pilot their supercharged vehicles over land, under sea, and through the sky to stop Kaos!
All existing toys will work with the new game. The new toy lineup is comprised of 20 new characters and 20 vehicles.
Online racing and co-op has been added to the series for the first time too!
“With the sea levels, you have the ability to dive underwater and find new shortcuts and secrets. The land levels show more of a focus on drifting, ramps, and going off road which is just a small taste of the diversity this entry in the series holds. I can't wait to try the story mode including the Nintendo exclusives Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser.”
Nintendo sites focused on highlighting the 3DS/Wii news and assets, including Nintendo Insider, Nintendo Life, Nintendo Everything, and Nintendo Okie. GoNintendo praised Skylanders for continuing ‘to blaze the toys-to-life trail’ with even more franchise firsts.

Fans of Activision's toys-meet-games franchise have been clamoring for a more direct way to interact with their precious plastic playmates than entering in a cold, impersonal numeric code. Skylanders Battlegrounds finally gets a Bluetooth summoning portal into players hands, along with a game that puts it to excellent use …
Using the codes included in the toys or the upcoming Bluetooth portal accessory, players transfer their purchased toys (or buy them using in-game currency) into the game world, where they appear as tiny little characters, wandering about the world.
Embark on an exciting adventure with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force.
In this game, Skylanders have the unique ability to mix and match their top and bottom parts to create new characters with different in-game abilities and powers. Separate the sixteen figures and snap them together in new combinations to change their powers and abilities in the game. 256 unique combinations in all!
Vicarious Visions have supplied the technology for Skylanders right from the get-go and for Skylanders' third year they've unleashed a new engine that flat-out embarrasses the past two games. Characters look much more detailed and have gorgeous new animations, and Skylands shines with a vibrancy we haven't yet been accustomed to.
Activision doesn't have to sell me on buying Skylanders toys at this point—I literally have a bucket full of them sitting not three feet from me as I type—but the games, entertaining as they are, could use a little work. The kind of work they've done with the new engine for Skylanders: Swap Force. Read more on Kotaku.
