The latest offering in the Skylanders series, Skylanders SWAP Force, is available today. Skylanders, one of the best-selling kids video game franchise of 2013, revolutionized game playing by allowing players to switch in-game characters through placing toys atop the "Portal of Power." SWAP Force promises to up the ante with the ability for players to "freely interchange the top and bottom halves of 16 special characters by mixing and matching their powers and moves into more than 250 unique character combinations."
The game features 40 new collectible characters -- 16 new SWAP Force characters, 16 core Skylanders characters, and eight new LightCore characters; Skylanders SWAP Force is also playable with the more than 100 characters from the prior games, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders Giants.
Skylanders SWAP Force is available on Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and will be ready for the pending PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.
The Skylanders franchise is published by Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI).
