The Isle of Skylands!

The Isle of Skye in Scotland has long been a place of natural beauty – but it’s never been this exciting! To celebrate the month of SWAPtober and the launch of Skylanders SWAP Force, the magical virtual world of Skylands has officially been twinned with the island!



To officially mark the virtual twinning, a couple of very exciting things have happened!

 An inaugural visit to the Isle of Skye by Wash Buckler, one of the new Skylanders SWAP Force characters. Wash Buckler toured some of the island’s most famous landmarks....




A magical takeover of the Isle of Skye website www.skye.co.uk. Just pay them a visit, and type SWAP anywhere on the homepage to see what happens. I wont spoil it for you, you need to go see for yourself. But let me tell you that Chester was literally bouncing off the walls with excitement at 7.30am this morning!

As you may (or may not) already know Skylanders SWAP Force is being developed by Vicarious Visions and is set to release on Friday October 18.  Developed for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Wii U and Wii  systems from Nintendo and Nintendo 3DS.

Skylanders SWAP Force is delivering a whole new world of innovation and introduces the groundbreaking new feature —swapability. The pioneers of the toys-to-life genre are presenting kids and gamers with unprecedented levels of choice in how they explore Skylands and battle Kaos by swapping the top and bottom halves of the inter-action figures to transform 16 SWAP ForceTM characters into more than 250 unique combinations.

Set in a richly detailed next generation world, Skylanders SWAP Force takes kids on an all-new adventure with 32 brand new heroic characters that each offer unique powers and personalities.  The game also features new abilities – such as flying, climbing, and teleporting – which can be used in special areas of Skylands.  Additionally, fans can play with their entire collection of more than 100, forward-compatible toys from both Skylanders Spyro’s AdventureTM and Skylanders Giants™.

Chester is so excited I fear he may burst! He has been waiting for Friday 18th October to come around for MONTHS! He can not wait to see what swapabilities work best!

Keep an eye on my blog and my social media channels as I will be keeping you updated on all things SWAP Force as soon as information comes my way!
