Skylanders Donkey Kong Amiibo

Nothing like a color-variant edition of a popular collectible to send people into throes of joy, right?

The new Skylanders SuperChargers Dark Edition Starter Pack will include an extra figurine and extra game content. It will also cost you an extra $24. To make things more confusing, there are different versions of the Dark Edition Starter Pack for different consoles. Because of course, SuperChargers is also compatible with the upcoming Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser amiibos. (Learn all about amiibos here.) Since amiibos are made by Nintendo, the Wii and Wii U versions of the Dark Edition will each come with one of those characters.

Let’s break it down.

For those keeping track, that is two Skylanders and two vehicles per Dark Edition Starter Pack. Every Starter Pack will have a Portal of Power and a poster showing all the Skylanders you can collect. The Dark Editions will be $99 each, and the standard edition will be $74.99. Another thing to note is that if you want to collect all of the figurines included in these packs, you will need to buy all three versions of the Dark Edition Starter Pack.

The Skylanders SuperChargers Dark Edition, along with other versions of the game, will be released in September. The standard version of the game will be available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, Wii U, 3DS and iOS.
