The Skylanders phenomena are set to continue, as Activision has announced a release date of October 13th for the latest installment in the series, Skylanders Swap Force. The Skylanders franchise has enjoyed massive success on all platforms, giving players the unique ability to bring their beloved collectible figurines to life within the game. Skylanders Swap Force will feature 32 new characters, with 16 of them making up the new Swap Force element, literally adding a new twist to the franchise.
The new Skylanders will feature interchangeable tops and bottoms, allowing players to modify and build their own characters with abilities to suit their own gameplay. As with Skylanders Giants, all characters are forward compatible, meaning all your existing Skylanders can be used within Swap Force. This time around, Vicarious Visions will be responsible for the Console versions of the game, while Heroes of Ruin and Beenox will handle the 3DS and Wii versions respectively. Original creator Toys For Bob are taking a well earned rest on this one.
