Skylanders SWAP Force

System: Wii U Release date: 18/10/2013

Share your skills and swap your way to victory! In Skylanders SWAP Force, mix and match characters’ top and bottom halves to create powerful new combined warriors. If you like the skip in the step of one SWAP Force character but prefer the weaponry of another, simply clip the favoured parts together and place them on the new Portal of Power for the best of both worlds.

Skylanders SWAP Force sees Portal Masters journey to the mysterious Cloudbreak Islands, which hosts a magical volcano that erupts once a century. In the midst of a huge battle, several Skylanders are caught within the eruption, splitting them apart. The magic of the volcano, however, gives them each a new super power that allows them to swap halves and combine their might in weird and wonderful new ways. Regrouping as the SWAP Force, the heroes must return to Cloudbreak and dismantle Kaos’ latest evil plan to save Skylands once again.

As well as a selection of new toys, Skylanders SWAP Force is also fully backwards compatible with all previously released Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants figurines. Any powers and statistics gained in past games are carried over, and now all characters have the ability to jump too.

In addition to an adventure filled with platforming, combat, mini-games, puzzles and easy drop-in/drop-out co-operative play, there are several extra modes for fans to sink their teeth into. Work alone or alongside a friend to fight off hordes of enemies in Survival Mode, compete to beat the most beasts in Rival Mode, or take each other on directly in Battle Arena and Ring Out competitive modes.

In Skylanders SWAP Force on Wii U, players can keep track of their statistics, objectives and how they compare to their friends in online leaderboards, all without pausing play, thanks to the Wii U GamePad’s screen. If the television isn’t available, the entire game is also compatible with Off-TV Play.

  • Mix and match new SWAP Force figures to find your perfect combination and get to grips with a host of new abilities
  • All your favourite Skylanders figures work in Skylanders SWAP Force – statistics included!
  • Play the main adventure with friends with co-operative multiplayer, or take in Survival, Rival or Battle modes together
  • Check statistics, goals and online leaderboards on the Wii U GamePad, or play the whole adventure TV-free with Off-TV Play

* Additional accessories required for multiplayer mode, sold separately.
