Skylanders: Trap Team Announced

The newest edition of the popular Skylanders franchise has officially been revealed. Titled Skylanders: Trap Team, the game has been announced for release accompanied by a “Discovery” trailer which can be seen here.

The game is called Skylanders: Trap Team because of its brand new game mechanic, the “traptanium portal” which allows players to defeat and capture enemies in game (think pokemon) to fight on your side. The game is said to introduce 40 new “trappable” characters and 60 new Skylander characters to play as this time around.

After the huge success of the franchise so far, it has hit the $2 billion mark in sales, it is no surprise that we will see a new Skylanders game just in time for the holiday season. The game is set to release on October 5th for Wii, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4 consoles.
