The next edition of Skylanders will launch on October 2, says Activision.
Skylanders Trap Team lets players play as the villains in the Skylanders universe for the first time. Players capture the villains using the new Traptanium Portal before sending them back into the game to fight for good.
“When we created Skylanders, we invented a new category of play and, in the process, disrupted two industries – videogames and toys,” says Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “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.”
Skylanders Trap Team will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U and in “a completely unique adventure” on 3DS.
