Skylanders Swap Force

Skylanders Swap Force

Skylanders Swap Force, the next installment of the Skylanders series, is expected to launch alongside a new line of toys this Fall for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Wii and 3DS.

Activision has handed the development to Vicarious Visions this time around. The company says Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants developer Toys for Bob will get the freedom and space for their next thing, which could be a new Skylanders game for next year. Vicarious Visions previously worked on the 3DS version of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants for the Wii U.

[adsense250itp]Skylanders Swap Force will introduce new two-part toys to the massively popular franchise. The new line of 16 toys have interchangeable parts split at the waist by magnets. Each piece can be swapped out to make a new character, meaning the 16 toys combine for 256 unique Skylanders. In addition, all previously released Skylanders figures will be compatible with the game.

The new Skylanders game is being developed in full high-definition from the beginning to end. The result will be the best graphics seen in a Skylanders game yet.

Vicarious Visions is handling development for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U versions of Skylanders Swap Force. Beenox, the studio in charge of the last three Spider-Man video games, is making the Wii version. A 3DS version of the game is in development with n-Space. All platforms are set to get Skylanders Swap Force this Fall.

Activision could be beginning a Call of Duty-like yearly cycle with dual development for the Skylanders series.

The Skylanders series, including all games, figures and accessory packs, has sold more than $500 million in the U.S., as of December. More than 30 million Skylanders toys have been sold worldwide.

Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure released in 2011. The game allows players to interact with their toys as they appear in the game after communicating with the Portal of Power through NFC.
