There’s another Skylanders game coming out on October 5 of this year called Skylanders Trap Team. It’s an all new game with a new concept, but you’ll still be able to use any Skylander figure you’ve purchased. The hook behind Skylanders Trap Team is capturing villains who have been set free by Kaos. It’ll be our job to fight and capture those villains using a new accessory called crystal traps. The crystal traps will work in conjunction with the new Traptanium Portal. This new portal is required for Skylanders Trap Team.
Once you defeat one of the bosses that can be captured, you’ll insert the crystal trap into Traptanium Portal. The villain will be sucked into the crystal, and can also talk through a speaker that’s in the base. Once captured, you can fight as the villain without taking your Skylander off the portal.
Each crystal can only hold one villain at a time, and there over 40 in the game. The good news is you won’t need 40 crystals. Anyone you captured is saved in the game and you can simply switch to the one you want. However, the villains can only be captured with crystals that match their elemental type. You’ll need eight crystals to capture them all, and two crystals will come with the game.
Skylanders Trap Team will be released for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U and 3DS. The starter pack will set you back $74.99.
