Do 2 Skylanders fit on the 3DS portal?

#1ReedeemerPosted 11/23/2011 11:29:21 PM(edited)
I was planning on buying a few figures as a gift for my nephew who already owns the wii version, but I recently found out that his portal took a fall and stopped working, so the 3DS starter kit would make a perfect gift for him.

So I'm just asking if 2 skylanders fit on the 3DS portal so he could also use the 3DS one for multiplayer on his Wii.

Could one of you kindly test this out for me? TYIA

The 3DS portal works on PC, but I don't think it works with the consoles. It doesn't work with he 360. And no, the DS portal is not intended to be used with more than one figure at a time like the rest are. You can't fit two figures on it flat, and I don't think they would both work if you could. You have options though. Either buy a new copy of the Wii version and swap the portals, that way you have a receipt when you return it, or contact Activision for a replacement portal. They've been really good with customer service for this game.

Technically yes, the 3DS portal does work for multiplayer on the Wii and PS3. It's very small though so it'll be a bit messy and crowded having two on there at the same time.

How did you get the portal working on the Wii? When I start up the game, the game says that it does not detect the wireless dongle. (I plugged the portal in before powering up the Wii).

This post says you plug it in at the Wii menu before starting the game:
