Smyths Toys Superstores To Open Early
Friday looks set to be an epic day for video game fans with Smyths Toys Superstores gearing up for the biggest children’s video game release of the year, Skylanders SWAP Force. The toy retailer’s 67 stores across the UK & Ireland will be open from 8am on Friday morning (October 18th) to give eager gamer’s the chance to get their hands on the new video game first.
Skylanders SWAP Force is the sequel to 2012’s smash hit, Skylanders Giants, and sees players embark on an exciting new Skylands adventure. For generations, the SWAP Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability to swap powers. The game allows players the chance to mix and match the tops and bottoms of character to create 256 exciting combinations. Swappable, unstoppable, your new power is choice.
Commenting on the game’s release, Dryden Geary, Marketing Manager for Smyths Toys Superstores, said “We can’t wait to embark on a new Skylanders adventure. All our stores will be open early on Friday morning to ensure people can get their hands on the game at Smyths Toys Superstores before anywhere else. We encourage customers to pre-order for free in-store or online at SmythsToys.com to ensure they can secure their copy for the game’s release on Friday.”
Skylanders SWAP Force is available in-store and online at SmythsToys.com from Friday, October 18th for Wii, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and 3DS. Prices start from £49.99/€64.99. Individual Skylanders SWAP Force figures can be purchased separately.
