Skylanders Trap Team Review
The new Skylanders video game reverses the magic of the Toys-To-Life™ play pattern allowing players to take a digital character and bring it to life in the physical world. Take one of the toys and pop it onto a portal connected to your video game console or tablet, and the toy magically zaps onto the screen. Skylanders: Trap Team is the toys-to-life game that will be on the list of top Christmas toys of 2014. The games along with the Trap Team are filled with combat, adventure and exploration, and puzzle-solving.
The 2014 holiday season will bring a large selection of Skylanders characters, including figures from Skylanders SWAP Force™, Skylanders Giants™ and Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure®, all of which are also compatible with Skylanders Trap Team – and all have a unique translucent weapon.
Toys“R”Us will feature the limited edition Legendary Series of Skylanders toys, including alternative versions of new Trap Team characters and packs, such as Legendary Jawbreaker, Legendary Déjà Vu and Legendary Nightmare Express Adventure Pack, all of which feature enhanced in-game powers – perfect for both kids and adults!
Skylanders: Trap Team was released on October 5, 2014 in North America, for release on Android, Fire OS, iOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS.
The new Trap Team figures cost $11 to $17, and the plastic traps are priced at about $8 each. There is a new Mini Skylanders line coming out at the same time – the pack-in Food Fight is a mini – but even they cost $15 for a pair.
