E3 2015: Skylanders Meets amiibo in Superchargers

This is enough to cause a mini heart attack in toys-to-life fans: Imagine if your favorite plastic figures had crossover capability? No, seriously. Such as amiibo support in Skylanders Superchargers?

Well, it’s happening. Nintendo’s Digital Event confirmed it today, with two amiibo figures making their way into the latest entry in the Skylanders universe. “Turbocharged” Donkey Kong will have a Barrel Blaster vehicle, while “Hammer Slam” Bowser will use a Clown Copter.

And what’s more, the two figures will have the ability to be switched between amiibo and Skylander games with just a quick rotation of the base.

As you may expect, these figures are exclusive to the Wii U version of Skylanders Superchargers.
