Activision have just released a Bluetooth version of the Skylanders Portal of Power, one that will allow you to play the new Skylanders: Battleground game on iOS.
The wireless version of the portal is available as a starter pack that also includes a code to download Skylanders: Battleground and three figures; Jet Vac, Cynder and Double Trouble. The iOS game will also be available as a standalone download from tomorrow, priced at $6.99.
Skylanders Battlegrounds features:
- An entirely new Action RPG experience designed from the ground up for mobile devices, featuring innovative team-up gameplay in which the player controls two Skylanders at the same time.
- Episodic content, starting with twenty levels and two mega bosses upon initial release. Additional levels and bosses will be delivered through app updates for free.
- Gamers who purchase the Skylanders Battlegrounds Starter Pack get to use the included platinum treasure chest that automatically unlocks loads of in-game loot including a coin and XP multiplier, health potions, bombs, and much more.
You can still download and play Skylanders: Battlegrounds, without having to use the wireless portal, but the portal will also work with the other two iOS Skylander games, Cloud Patrol and Lost Islands.
