Brace yourself: There’s more Skylanders on the way. Activision has confirmed that Skylanders Trap Team is hitting shelves around the world in October, bringing with it the ability to reverse the magic of bringing toys to life.
This time around, characters from inside the game are being brought into the real world, as Portal Masters seek out the most wanted baddies in all of Skylands. Capturing these villains in magical Traps mean they can be pulled out of the game to decorate your lounge room – or, of course, you can throw them back into the game and use their abilities to fight for good!
Trap Team includes the new Traptanium Portal used to both bring your Skylanders to life, but also to capture the baddies (and you can even hear them inside the Traps!).
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing explains:
When we created Skylanders, we invented a new category of play and, in the process, disrupted two industries – videogames and toys. With each new Skylanders game, our commitment to continuous, disruptive innovation has led to surprising and delightful new ways for kids to play with toys and games. With Skylanders Trap Team, we’re no longer just letting kids bring their toys to life inside the game anymore. This time, we’re letting them pull their toys out of the game as well. We are confident this installment of Skylanders will once again redefine what’s possible at the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds.
Kaos has returned. He has blown up the legendary Cloudcracker Prison, releasing a whole stack of Skylands’ most terrible bad guys. It’s up to you, Portal Master, to recapture the villains (with your Traptanium Traps) and defeat Kaos before it’s too late!
Skylanders Trap Team is headed to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii and Wii U – and there’s a special, unique adventure headed exclusively to 3DS as well.
