A bit about SwapForce:

“Skylanders SWAP Force is delivering a whole new world of innovation and introduces the groundbreaking new feature —swapability. The pioneers of the toys-to-life genre are presenting kids and gamers with unprecedented levels of choice in how they explore Skylands and battle Kaos by swapping the top and bottom halves of the inter-action figures to transform 16 SWAP ForceTM characters into more than 250 unique combinations.

Set in a richly detailed next generation world, Skylanders SWAP Force takes kids on an all-new adventure with 32 brand new heroic characters that each offer unique powers and personalities.  The game also features new abilities – such as flying, climbing, and teleporting – which can be used in special areas of Skylands.  Additionally, fans can play with their entire collection of more than 100, forward-compatible toys from both Skylanders Spyro’s AdventureTM and Skylanders Giants™.

Skylanders SWAP Force is being developed by Vicarious Visions and is set to release on Friday October 18.  Developed for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Wii U and Wii  systems from Nintendo and Nintendo 3DS.”
