Skylanders SWAP Force coming to Nintendo 3DS this fall
Skylanders fans can now enjoy swapping on the go as Activision announced a 3DS version of Skylanders SWAP Force due out on Nintendo's handheld this fall.
The 3DS version of Skylanders SWAP Force, developed by n-Space, will offers its own story, levels, and special starter pack with characters that complement the console version. The three characters -- Rattle Shake, Volcanic Eruptor, and Free Ranger -- are not found in any other Skylanders Starter Pack, so if you buy both the console version and 3DS version, you will end up with four SWAP Force Skylanders, totaling 16 different combinations.
The story of Skylanders SWAP Force on Nintendo 3DS begins in Boomtown, home of Skylands' favorite pilot, Flynn. As the town is celebrating Flynn as their hometown hero, a new villain known as Count Moneybone sneaks his way into Boomtown to kidnap Cali, long-time friend to Flynn and the Skylanders. Now it's up to Portal Masters everywhere to assemble the Skylanders and SWAP Force to save Cali and defeat the evil Count Moneybone.
"Skylanders fans have been very supportive in expressing what they'd like to experience in the Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders SWAP Force, and we really took their input to heart," said Alex Peters, Vice President, Activision Production. "The game plays smoother and crisper than ever before, and with kids' collections becoming larger and larger, we were able to add more depth and gameplay variety than any other hand-held version of Skylanders."
In total, Skylanders SWAP Force will feature 16 characters capable of transforming into more than 250 combinations. Skylanders SWAP Force on 3DS is also compatible with all fo the toys from Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders Giants.
