We are less than 2 weeks away from the release of Skylanders SuperChargers and wanted to share our thoughts on the Wave 1 Release.
Before we get started discussing them, here are the character we will in stores on opening day.
Skylanders SuperChargers Drivers
Fiesta / Frightful Fiesta (Gamestop Exclusive)
Shark Shooter Terrafin
Steel Plated Smash Hit
Legendary Hurricane Jet Vac
Spitfire / Dark Spitfire (Dark Edition)
Super Shot Stealth Elf / Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf (Dark Edition)
Hammer Slam Bowser (WiiU)
Dark Turbo Charge Donkey Kong (WiiU)
Skylander SuperChargers Vehicles
Sea Shadow /Dark Sea Shadow (Dark Edition)
Nitro Stealth Stinger (Target Exclusive)
Hot Streak / Dark Hot Streak (Dark Edition)
Dark Barrel Blaster (WiiU)
Skylanders SuperCharges Wave 1 Release Hits At the top of the list are Frightful Fiesta and Steel Plated Smash Hit. Both of these store exclusive character look solid in game and out of game.
We are on the fence when it comes to the revamped original characters, Stealth Elf and Terrafin. It is nice to see they are changing them up but to take away their melee abilities and replacing it with ranged weapons, we are not sure if they will lose some of their luster.
Skylanders SuperChargers Wave 1 Release Misses We are a bit disappointed in the first Legendary figures being Jet Vac. Not only was he a previous Legendary character, we think there is only so much to do with new gameplay.
The other miss is the Nintendo exclusive figures. It is bad enough they are encroaching in the game world, but to make matters worse, they will only work on Nintendo systems.
Let us know what you think are the hit and misses for the Wave 1 Release of Skylanders SuperChargers.
