The lights are on
Activision is putting internal studio Vicarious Visions in charge of the next Skylanders game, dubbed Swap Force.
The game – which doesn't have an official release time frame yet – lets players combine the top and bottom halves of 16 Swap Force characters for 250 combinations. These unique combos can also be played with their existing Skylanders characters.
Apart from the Swap Force Skylanders, the game also features 32 "core" characters (16 new Skylanders and 16 new versions of fan favorites) and eight new LightCore characters.
Skylanders Swap Force will be shown at NYC's Toy Fair 2013 starting Sunday, February 10.
