Target offering magic cards with Skylanders Swap Force pre-order


Activision has announced that Target will be passing out magic cards with pre-orders for the upcoming Skylanders Swap Force. Portalmasters who pre-order the game at Target will get an exclusive physical trading card that grants upgrades in the game when placed on the new Portal of Power.

Swap Force's marquee feature is that it uses characters with two parts that can be mixed and matched, but these specially branded trading cards will work as well.

There's also an ongoing deal (at all retailers) that grants a free "Lightcore Hex" Skylanders Giants character when you pre-order a starter pack. This Giants character, like all of the other characters in the series so far, can also be used to play through Swap Force content. If you're a parent of younger children, it's also something else for you to trip over.

Available now, those who pre-order Skylanders SWAP Force at Target will receive the first-ever magic pre-sell cards that will unlock an in-game upgrade when Portal Masters place it on their SWAP Force Portal of Power.

Also, those who reserve a Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack at participating retailers will receive a free LightCore Hex Skylanders Giants character.

Skylanders is "mixing it up" with the newest game in the award-winning, top-selling franchise. Skylanders SWAP Force builds upon the success of the franchise's signature gameplay and collectible toy experience, adding an all-new dimension to the "toys to life" innovation. The game introduces a compelling play pattern -- dynamic swapability -- that lets gamers transform 16 SWAP Force inter-action figures into more than 250 unique characters by swapping the top and bottom halves of the toys. Now, Portal Masters can mix and match characters' powers and moves and experience an unprecedented level of choice than ever before seen in a Skylanders game. Fans also can play Skylanders SWAP Force with their entire collection of 100+ characters from Skylanders Spyro's Adventure® and Skylanders Giants.
