The Dark Edition Starter Kit, which will be exclusive to GameStop in North America and EB Games in Australia, will include five Dark Edition figurines. These are Dark Washbuckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Stealth Elf, Dark Spyro, and Dark Slobber Tooth. The kit will come with a copy of the game, a portal of power, a character poster, five sticker sheets with secret codes, and five trading cards.

The bundle will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and Wii U, and is currently listed at $99.99 (A$119), which is a $25 (A$21) premium on the $75 ($A98) standard Swap Force starter pack. The game will go on sale in mid October, with current-generation console versions available for preorder now.

Skylanders Swap Force, the third game in the series, will allow players to mix and match tops and bottoms of toys to create new character and ability combinations. Activision recently announced that the franchise has passed more than $1.5 billion dollars in sales globally since launching in 2011.
