Skylanders Swap Force Coming Fall 2013

I am beyond excited.  It was just announced that the next video game in the Skylanders series, SWAP FORCE, will come out in Fall 2013.  Skylanders Swap Force introduces swappable action figures – looks totally cool.  Check out this video of the Skylanders Swap Force launch party from Toy Fair 2013 -

Skylanders Swap Force Will Introduce Jumping

Swappable Skylanders is incredible, but I am also excited about the ability to jump.  In this article on Skylanders Swap Force they mention that all Skylanders, new and old, will be able to Jump in Swap Force.  I can’t tell you how long I have waited for this feature.  It might have been all the emails that I sent Activision that got them to introduce the ability to jump in Swap Force.

I really think the ability to swap tops and bottoms will make Skylanders much more fun.  With just 16 Swappable figures you will be able to create over 250 different characters based on how you mix and match.

The only downside to Skylanders Swap Force, now I need to wait until Fall 2013 before it comes out!

Check back here in a few weeks, I am looking to find more links to Skylanders Swap Force videos.  If you know of anything, let me know.
