Bowser and Donkey Kong amiibo confirmed as Skylanders crossovers


Coming in the new game later this year

Nintendo announced during their E3 presentation today that Donkey Kong and Bowser will both be making their mark on the Skylanders franchise this year in figure form, to be playable within the game.

The figure will be a combination of a Skylanders SuperChargers toy and an amiibo, where you can flip the base at the bottom to use both. Magma Bowser will utilize his fire breath and koopa army, and Donkey Kong will have pieces of ladder fall from the sky.

Just when I was done buying Skylanders figures, they draw me back in!
