Earlier today Activision announced the Skylanders Swap Force release date, pricing and platforms. Soon thereafter, retailers began taking pre-orders for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.
The packaging image released with each console version is nearly identical with inclusive Swap Force Wash Buckler and Magna Charge figures, along with Series 3 Stealth Elf, pictured. A little surprise showed up in the imagery for the 3DS version as a sneak preview of what we can expect to see from E3 in just a few days.
As with previous 3DS versions of Skylanders, the Swap Force game will come with an exclusive repaint, in this case Series 3 Volcanic Eruptor. He’s likely a repaint of a new Series 3 figure we haven’t seen yet.
The 3DS version also comes with two all-new Swap Force Skylanders whose names are not yet known. I’m currently trying to acquire those names, but in the meantime, see below for a nice high resolution version of all three figures. The undead outback rattlesnake is too cool for words, and the other one appears to be an air vulture.
Skylanders Swap Force makes it big North American debut on October 13. Click the image below to enlarge.
