New Skylanders Title Hits Shelves in U.S.

The third installment Activision Publishing’s Skylanders franchise, “Skylanders Swap Force,” arrived on shelves in the U.S. Sunday for Nintendo Wii, Wii U and 3DS, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3. Versions for PlayStation4 and Xbox One will also be available when those consoles launch later this year.

The new title introduces an all-new innovative play pattern, swapability, which lets players freely interchange the top and bottom halves of 16 special characters by mixing and matching their powers and moves into more than 250 unique character combinations.
