I just received a copy of Skylanders Swap Force (only the disc) for Wii U and Spyro's Adventure (everything included) for the 3ds. Does anyone know if the 3ds portal would work on the Wii U? I'm not really sure what to do with only the disc... It was a random gift :P
Doesn't the 3DS portal link up to the game with the IR port or something? I've never used one so I'm not sure.
Worst comes to worst, go to a used game store and see if they have any portals kicking around. Gamestop sells the portals, but you'd need to at least have the portal that matches up with your game (the portals are backwards compatible, so you could use either a Swap Force or Trap Team portal with Swap Force, and then those would work with giants). PS3/PS4/Wii/Wii U portals are all the same, so just make sure you don't get an Xbone/360 portal and you should be fine!
Just google to make sure you get the right portal, Swap Force's is pretty short compared to the original so it should stand out.
