Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition coming to GameStop and EB Games this October; pack will feature five exclusive colour variant characters.

 

Skylanders Swap Force, the upcoming title in Activision’s toy-based game series, is set to receive a retailer-specific version: Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition, GameStop has announced, as reported by Business Wire.

The Dark Edition Starter Kit, which will be exclusive to GameStop in North America and EB Games in Australia, will include five Dark Edition figurines. These are Dark Washbuckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Stealth Elf, Dark Spyro, and Dark Slobber Tooth. The kit will come with a copy of the game, a portal of power, a character poster, five sticker sheets with secret codes, and five trading cards.

The bundle will be available for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PS4, Nintendo Wii, Wii U, and 3DS, and is currently listed at $99.99 (A$119), which is a $25 (A$21) premium on the $75 ($A98) standard Swap Force starter pack. The game will go on sale in mid October, with current-generation console versions available for pre-order now.

Skylanders Swap Force, the third game in the series, will allow players to mix and match tops and bottoms of toys to create new character and ability combinations. Activision recently announced that the franchise has passed more than $1.5 billion dollars in sales globally since launching in 2011.
