Skylanders Swap Force - Can Lightning strike three times?

 

  

August 02,in the year of our Lord 2013 - - Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exploring Skylanders Swap Force. Can lightning strike three times? Skylanders Spyro's Adventure broke all kinds of records in 2011. The mixing of toys and video games was not only revolutionary, but also exciting and fun. Families enjoyed being able to take their leveled up characters to a friends house and play together. The variety of types unlocked a wide array of secret areas. Activision found a hit in Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. Both the video game industry and the toy industry took notice.

Activision did what most companies do when they have a successful video game, or a successful toy. They released a sequel in the form of Skylanders Giants in the year of our Lord 2012. This introduced huge characters both in the toy world, and in the video game world. Giants could do major feats within the game to pull islands closer, throw boulders to open the way, and more. Skylanders Giants was also backwards compatible with all of the characters from Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. Families got even more use out of their original purchase. Yes once again families embraced this series, and this franchise. Skylanders Giants became another hit for Activision. Lightning struck twice.

Here we are in 2013, and Activision is prepping the video game industry and the toy industry for the upcoming release (October 13, 2013) of Skylanders Swap Force on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, Wii, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo 3DS. New characters will split in half, allowing families to mix and match their favorite top halves with their favorite bottom halves. Can lightning strike a third time? How will the release of Disney Infinity impact the Skylanders franchise? Is the market big enough for both of them?
