4177 General Skylanders Swap Force Magna Charge

It seems our intuition was correct - we predicted yesterday that a new Skylanders release was in the offing, and Activision has dropped the bombshell by announcing Skylanders Swap Force, the next instalment in the million-selling series. It's coming to all major Nintendo platforms, too.

As the name suggests, the focus of this new range is the ability to swap components. Each character comes with a top half and a bottom half, allowing you to mix-and-match to create new characters. There's also a new portal to purchase. You can hear Activision's bank manager rubbing his hands as we speak.

There's no solid release date for the game, but later in 2013 is a safe bet. Vicarious Visions handling the Wii U edition, n-Space the 3DS version and Beenox the Wii version. Yes, the Wii is still alive and kicking.

Are you excited about this announcement, or has Disney Infinity stolen your attention? As ever, leaving a comment is the best way to let us know!
