Toy and game retailer Toys ‘R’ Us has announced that it will host a launch event on Day One of the Skylanders Swap Force release. The special event will feature Limited Edition Swap Force including Legendary versions of Night Shift, Grip Creeper, and Zoo Lou, among other figures, and it will take place on Sunday, October 13th. Toys ‘R’ Us stores will have modified hours to accommodate the game’s launch, as some locations will go all out with a midnight sale, while others will simply open an hour or two early.
Gamers who purchase the 3DS version of the game will have an even greater chance of getting some exclusive Skylanders figures, as Activision recently announced a starter pack for 3DS that features characters not found in any other starter pack. An Activision exec also recently spoke about the originality of the Skylanders concept. Skylanders Swap Force is a multi-platform release with versions launching across the three major Nintendo consoles: Wii U, Wii, and 3DS.
