Activision and Vicarious Games show off their newest Skylanders game, Skylanders Swap Force. Take a look at the reveal trailer and screenshots here.
My son is a massive skylanders fan and this shit is costing me a fortune! :-/
Oh Nooo! My daughter is a massive skylanders fan and this bu**sh*t is costing me a damn fortune! I have to by some skylanders Monsters characters this weekend! However: Day 1 purchase! I just hope its backwards compatible with the new systems!!!!!
These are actually going to work with all the games. You will be able to "jump" these and use them in Skylanders: Spyros Adventure and in Skylanders: Giants in addition to the new game. However, you will likely have to buy a new copy of the game to go with a new console.. (if the new XBOX or PS4 actually do come out this year)
so how will it know who you have?
As you probably know, there are computer chips inside the skylanders now, that is how the machine identifies the skylander. I believe that these will have 2 chips (one for top and one for the bottom.) The combination will be read by the machine to identify a preset character and its altered abilities.
ahhh. makes sense now
