U.K. video game retailer Game has opened up pre-ordering for an exclusive Dark Edition starter pack for the upcoming “Skylanders SWAP Force.”
The newest iteration in Activision’s Skylanders franchise will be available Oct. 13 in North America, Oct. 16 in Australia and Oct. 18 in Europe for the Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3.
In addition to the game itself, Game’s Dark Edition starter pack includes a Portal of Power, five exclusive Dark Edition figures, a poster, sticker sheets with secret codes and five trading cards.
“Skylanders SWAP Force” builds on the franchise’s signature gameplay and collectible toy experience with a new dimension–dynamic swapability. Players can transform 16 SWAP Force inter-action figures into more than 250 unique characters by swapping the top and bottom halves of the toys, and can mix and match characters’ powers and moves within the game.
In addition to the 16 new core characters, the new game will also be accompanied by eight new LightCore characters and 16 new versions of fan-favorite Skylanders from previous games.
