Activision is tugging at your wallet once again with a third iteration of their collectible toy/video game crossover series, “Skylanders.” “Skylanders: Swap Force” introduces new toys that can be separated at the waist and then combined in a variety of ways. Of course, many of the old toys are also getting a reboot which means collectors and completionists will need to buy a lot of new stuff. The new starter kit does come with either three or five of the new toys to get you started. With some gameplay changes and a whole new set of characters, you might want some help. That where BradyGames comes in.
The BradyGames “Skylanders: Swap Force Signature Series Guide” opens up with a list of compatible Skylanders from the older games. It then follows that up with detailed information on each of the new characters. The pages on the swappable characters also reveal what powers will be transferred when you swap pieces. Of course the guide also walks you through the main campaign and gives insights into nearly every aspect of the game. It will tell you how to uncover hidden areas, solve each of the puzzles, and defeat the bosses found throughout Skylands.
The “Skylanders: Swap Force Signature Series Guide,” from BradyGames covers the Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360,and Nintendo Wii and Wii U versions of the game. In addition to the Signature Series Guide, a holographic foil hardback “Collector’s Edition Strategy Guide” is also available in limited quantities. The Collector’s edition also includes two, eight inch tall Paper Models of Wash Buckler and Blast Zone and an exclusive Topps rainbow foil collectible trading card.
