What is at the top of children's lists this year for Santa Claus? The brand-new Skylanders Trap Team video game! Toys“R”Us named Skylanders Trap Team as one of the “Fabulous 15” on their 2014 Holiday Hot Toy List, and Target named the game to its Top Toys for the Holidays List. The game was also featured in Toy Insider’s Hot 20 Holiday Toys of 2014, which highlights the most sought-after and anticipated items of the holiday season.
About the game:
Skylanders Trap Team introduces heroes known as Trap Masters that wield powerful Traptanium weapons used to defeat Skylands’ most notorious villains including Kaos, as well as brand new Core Skylanders characters and reposed fan-favorite Skylanders characters. The game also features a variety of elementally aligned Traps with unique and interesting designs. In addition, Skylanders Trap Team welcomes Skylanders Minis, 16 small but powerful Skylanders now fully playable, who join the battle against Skylands’ most nefarious villains. Coming to Skylanders fans worldwide on November 1, Eon’s Elite collectors’ toys feature never-before-seen decoration with a distinct, metallic finish and a golden base that sets them apart from other Skylanders toys. Skylanders Trap Team is compatible with more than 175 unique toys from all previous Skylanders games. Every character also will be able to defeat and trap villains using Traptanium Traps, providing fans more ways to enjoy their collections.
My boys were already huge fans of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, Skylanders Giants, and Skylanders SWAP Force, so they were so excited to hear that Skylanders Trap Team is now available! They have been playing it all the time with their friends. So, what’s new with Skylanders Trap Team? Players can seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands by capturing them in magical Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, players can place a Trap into the new Traptanium Portal to capture them and then send villains back into the game where they can play as them to fight for good, reversing the magic. They are also able to hear the villains inside the Traps, which truly “brings life to toys.” My boys have confirmed that Skylanders Trap Team is the best game yet in the Skylanders series of video games!
Skylanders Trap Team is available at major retailers nationwide for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems, as well as a unique adventure on the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. There’s even a Starter Pack that supports iPad, Kindle Fire and Android tablets.
