This past Thursday (8/29/13), I got a phone call from Activision Publishing to let me know about the new Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders SWAP Force. The game will be coming out on October 13 in North America (it will be out a few days later in Australia and Europe) and they wanted to know if I wanted to share some advance screen shots with my readers, in which I gladly accepted.
There will be three new characters in the Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders SWAP Force (Rattle Shake, Volcanic Eruptor, and Free Ranger) that are not found in any other Skylanders Starter Pack.
Unique to SWAP Force games, you now have the choice to swap the top and bottom halves of the toys to switch 16 action figures into more than 250 unique combination figures. The new game is compatible with all of the toys from the past 2 games (Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants) and all of the characters’ abilities, levels and customization you worked on in those games, will be automatically ported to Skylanders SWAP Force.
