    Skylander's Swap Force Announced

    Today Activision and Beenox have announced the latest edition to their ever popular game series Skylander's that uses action figures. The new game that was announced is called Skylander's Swap Force. Skylander's Swap Force is the latest game to join the series and will add a whole new purpose and yes it will add new characters to the game, which means new figures for all of you that just love this game. Skylanders Swap Force is set to release for the PS3 sometime in 2013.


    As the thread title states, Beenox and Activision have announced a new Skylander's game called Skylander's Swap Force. Swap Force will be the newest game in the series and will focus on "swapability in the game. The new game will add 16 toys with interchangeable tops and bottoms, which in turn will allow you to create about 250 different combinations. A new upgraded portal will be needed to use the new toys, but old ones will not be hurt by this and will still be compatible. Another thing revealed is that to go with the new Swap Force characters, the game will also get 32 core Skylanders released, which 16 of them will be new and the rest being newer versions of older characters. The game will also see 8 new light core characters released for it that will have the ability to jump, which is a first in the series. Below is a teaser trailer for Skylander's Swap Force.

    Hell, if you're into collecting an endless supply of expensive toys, go for it.

    Ok, I understand why this series would be milked, but yearly releases seems like overkill.

    My 3 year old and 18 month old love Skylanders and they don't even play the games. They just play with the toys and if given the opportunity, swapping them on the portal to see them come to life.

    The toys are great quality, but the games are barely passable platformers with shoddy graphics targeted at 6 year olds, so you can't have high expectations. That said, some of the boss fights, puzzles and bouncepad sequences are somewhat tough for that age group, so the game almost requires parental or older sibling co-op.

    Swappable parts for Series 3...I guess I'll be out another $400-500 on some stupid toys. But I...just...can't...help...myself. My son just walked out his room carrying 4 of the 7 Giants that he lines up beside his bed each night. Resistance is futile.

    a) It's Activision. b) This will make at least the 7th Skylanders game by the time it's released across 6 major platforms. c) Kids love new toys. d) Pre-Christmas release schedule. e) Billion dollar franchise. f) Points b to e are rendered obsolete by point a.

    They haven't even released all the waves of Giants figures yet have they? I dunno if I wanna bother anymore, I thought they'd at least wait a while.... Screw this game.

    A little note, jumping is only new to the console versions. The 3DS game (which I almost think I like better) allowed all characters to jump.

    Yeah there's one more Giant and a handful of normal Skylanders to go. I only know because my kid has the poster from the game pack and is gagging for Hot Dog.
