We’re big Skylanders fans in our house- the game is a combination of videogame (great for kids as there are no death plunges off the screen to test the patience of littler gamers) and action figures, which our kids use outside the game to play with. Family Gamer TV have a 12 minute preview video of the new game, that’s worth a look:
Activision and Toys For Bob return with the fourth instalment of the Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Trap Team. Trap Team features 16 brand new Trap Master Skylanders and 18 new core Skylanders who are on the hunt for escaped villains from Cloudcracker Prison.
All of your existing Skylanders, plus the new Trap Team Skylanders have the ablity to trap defeated enemies in crystal traptanium traps which then allow the you to play as those same captured enemies at any time. Traps are slotted into the all new traptanium portal to allow the player to both capture and release fallen foes. You’ll even be able to hear your captured enemies talk to you directly from the traps when connected to the portal.
