Can you use previous Skylander's portal on this game?

  1. I have a previous version of Skylander. Did that old portal will work with swap force or do I have to buy the starter pack?

  1. Because the new Swap Force game has swappable characters, a new portal is required to play it.

    However, the newest portal will work for all previous games, so there's that.

  2. The old portals are technologically incompatible with Swap Force. They are unable to read enough rfid tags to account for the swap characters themselves. A standard figure and magic items each have 1 rfid tag. Swap figures have 2 tags - one each for the top & bottom.

    The old portals were capable of reading a maximum of 3 rfid tags at once. (2 skylanders & 1 magic item)

    The new portals can read a up to 5 rfid tags at once (2 swappables & 1 magic item)
