Skylanders Swap Force Wii U Bundle | oprainfall

Skylanders is, in this author’s opinion, one of the best (if not the best) new IPs from the last generation. It’s pretty fun, especially the platforming-focused 3DS games. It’s also one of the few high-profile games not based on a movie or cartoon directly aimed at kids, without being so shallow as to leave older gamers underwhelmed. While I haven’t gotten a chance to try out Skylanders SWAP Force yet, the swappable figures appeal to me, and the ability to jump has been a sorely lacking feature.

Nintendo has been busy forging a relationship with Skylanders. Last year, the Wii got a Skylanders Giants pack in; but this year, there is going to be a Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U pack. This pack includes:

  • A white Wii U Basic system
  • A Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack that includes:
  • Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U software
  • A Portal of Power®
  • Three Skylanders figures, including Ninja Stealth Elf (one of the Core Skylanders) and two SWAP Force™ characters: Blast-Zone and an exclusive color shift Washbuckler
  • A collector’s poster, trading cards and sticker sheets
  • A Nintendo Land™ game disc

This is a pretty good pack for families. For $300, if you love Skylanders, want the best version, and don’t have a Wii U, this might be a good way to get it.

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    And, in other news, the Wii U becomes the best-selling console of all time.

      yeah, i’d have to agree! this might be the holiday route Nintendo needs to take. instead of trying to ‘be cool’ to the older fans who snicker at them. cater to their own audience. bundle a machine with a highly popular game with tons of peripherals and even add Nintendo land, a Nintendo-centric party game that the entire family can enjoy and teach them about the Nintendo pantheon of titles.

    I would preffer a Disney Universe Bundle, but this one is good.

  • Cracker

    I would have purchased this bundle if it was the 32gb version, but the 8gb is not worth it.
