New Skylanders: Swap Force Characters Access Content Previously Available to Co-Op Gameplay

Just this morning, new toys in the Skylander: Swap Force character line were made available to the public. One would think that it's just another two characters to use in game, amongst the dozens already released. However, these two in particular are necessary to complete sections of the game previously untapped.

E3 2013 - Skylanders Swap Force Furthers the Collective Addiction

Skylanders was a game that surprised a lot of folks when it was unveiled at E3 two years ago. I can remember seeing the little figures come to life in a back room at the Activision booth and immediately thinking to myself, ok, this thing is going to catch on. We're now a few games and 50 some characters later and Skylanders is getting what might be the biggest change to the series yet. Skylanders Swap Force is the first game that looks, feels, and plays next-gen.

This is in addition to the already announced versions for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS, and Wii U.

Skylanders Swap Force and Disney Infinity Offer Very Different Multiplayer Co-op Experiences

Recently I’ve spent quite a bit of time comparing Skylanders Swap Force and Disney Infinity of late, but one area I’d not considered in detail was their co-operative features. What better place than Co-Optimus to get to grips with what these two toy-meets-game titles have to offer.

Skylanders SWAP Force Will Require a New Portal of Power

The upcoming Skylanders SWAP Force has a host of new improvements and additions to the previous two titles.  Players will be able to create 256 different character combinations from the 16 new bifurcated figures. There will also be 16 new Skylanders, eight LightCore Skylanders, and 16 returning Skylanders. There's also the ground breaking new gameplay function that allows characters to jump! Seriously. If you've played the game you know how big of a deal this is.

Skylanders SWAP Force Hands-Off Preview

Yesterday evening I headed down to the NASDAQ building in Times Square for an exclusive first look at the newly announced Skylanders SWAP Force. I am sad to report that if Skylanders has its hooks in you (or your kids or your wallet), SWAP Force will likely just drive them deeper in. The new skylanders and brand new mechanic introduced with SWAP Force look just as addicting, if not more so.
