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.
But let’s take a look at the current pre-orders available at retailers. For instance at Best Buy…
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!
