Mixing and matching toys.
Skylanders: Swap Force, the newest entry in Activision’s genius money printing franchise that mixes toys with video games, is now out; this newest installment sees players gaining the ability to ‘swap,’ allowing them to mix the top and bottom halves of their toys and get a unique mix of powers hitherto inaccessible.
“Skylanders is a brand built on one thing: magic. With each and every Skylanders title, we want to deliver new, delightful innovations to our young fans that continue to blur the lines between physical and digital play,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “With Skylanders Swap Force, we’ve taken this genre to a whole new level by giving players the greatest power of all: choice. In a franchise known for breakthrough innovation, I have no doubt that SWAP Force is our most innovative Skylanders game yet. And we’re thrilled to share it with fans of all ages today.”
Skylanders: Swap Force is now available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS; it will also be available for PS4 and Xbox One at launch.
