Skylanders has just announced Skylanders SwapForce, and it is going to be an absolute gamechanger for Skylanders. Vicarious Visions takes the developing reigns in this title and it sounds like they have done a great job with the series. Swap Force focuses on 16 new Skylanders that are interchangeable at the hip, which creates a total of 256 combinations. All together, there are 16 new mix and match Swap Force Skylanders, 16 new series 3 reposed Skylanders (These are reposed figures from the first two games, so therefore being referred to as Series 3 figures), 16 new core Skylanders, and 8 new lightcore toys, bringing the total to 56 new toys. All Series 3 Figures will have a blue base, denoting their series. SwapForce is going to have updated visual quality, as well as new gameplay mechanics. You can now jump with each of the Skylanders, and some even provide flying and climbing capabilites, giving fresh taste to the series. The Starter pack will come with a new and required Portal of Power, two Swap Force Skylanders, and a series 3 repose figure.
Here are some pictures to help you grasp the concept, leave your comments below, and stay tuned for my character feature later this evening!
