Activision's Skylanders Swap Force will feature 16 new figures with interchangeable parts including top and bottom sections with their own unique properties, offering around 256 different combinations. It'll also support 32 revamped Skylanders figures, but will require a brand new Portal of Power in order to play.
CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed the news in an interview with Family Gamer, also noting that all of the previous Skylanders toys will also work with the new Portal of Power.
Previous Skylanders dev Toys For Bob is also sitting Skylanders Swap Force out, with Activision enlisting Vicarious Visions for this latest instalment. It'll launch this autumn as a Skylanders Swap Force starter pack with the new Portal peripheral.
