RUMOR: Amiibo Support Coming To Skylanders SuperChargers? The Two Pieces Of Evidence

Could two of the Toys-To-Life genre of games be colliding? Recent speculation shows that it may be a possibility!

First off, the rumor really got some fuel from Jeff Gerstman on a recent The Giant Beastcast where he asked about the possibility of amiibo coming to Skylanders. The Skylanders devs gave a typical PR response saying they were focussing on discussing just the current news. But in the very next sentence they did say they did have a big surprise at E3.

Now that alone doesn’t really prove anything. That could just be poor timing by those words.

Notice that? The consoles all have the official starter pack image, except the Nintendo Wii U. That system just has a generic Skylanders SuperChargers logo on the box.

This is the same at all major retailers.

So why would the Wii U not have the official box yet? Very well could be that amiibo support is coming to Skylanders Superchargers.

We’ll find out for sure next week when we’re at E3!
