The Skylander toy figures in the game are also used as mobile saved games, meaning, when you put your figure on another “Portal of Power” even on a different console version, your stats, upgrades, skills, achievements will carry over. Putting two Skylanders toy figures on the “Portal of Power” will enable the local co-op mode or versus mode. There is no online multiplayer mode though.
