Story & Themes
As the story goes, the Skylanders were blasted to Earth when the volcano that supplies their magic erupted. Now they must win back the Skylands from the Darkness and evil villain Kaos, who wants to sow discord.
If you have a portal from a previous Skylanders game, you will need to buy the SWAP Force starter pack if you want to use the swapping ability. Old portals are not able to read when you have switched a figurine's top and bottom.
According to Wikipedia, there are 16 new character figurines for SWAP Force, along with reissued figurines from the previous games. There are also additional figurines, like the Legendary figurines and Dark figurines, which can only be bought at certain stores.
These aren't necessary to complete the main storyline of the game, but each figure type unlocks additional content. Each figurine costs about $16, and the starter pack costs over $70. You will need a second portal if you want to play co-op.
