New heroes and core characters to be added.
Activision has announced that a new Skylanders title will be out on October 10th in Europe. Skylanders: Trap Team will be Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U and 3DS. It will introduce new Trap Masters heroes, new core characters and much more will see you continue the struggle against Kaos.
CEO of Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg stated that, “When we created Skylanders, we invented a new category of play and, in the process, disrupted two industries – videogames and toys. With each new Skylanders game, our commitment to continuous, disruptive innovation has led to surprising and delightful new ways for kids to play with toys and games. With Skylanders Trap Team, we’re no longer just letting kids bring their toys to life inside the game anymore. This time, we’re letting them pull their toys out of the game as well. We are confident this instalment of Skylanders will once again redefine what’s possible at the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds.”
Executive VP and Chief Merchandising Officer Toys ‘R’ Us Richard Barry added that, “When Activision first introduced the Skylanders franchise in 2011, it promised to redefine play by merging the physical and digital worlds. The company delivered on that pledge with three blockbuster titles – and is now poised to do it again with the introduction of Skylanders Trap Team.
“With Skylanders Trap Team, Activision is reversing the magic of ‘toys-to-life,’ allowing kids to bring characters out of the digital world and into the physical world for the first time. We’re thrilled to continue as a marquee destination for Skylanders products, providing a comprehensive, global marketing and merchandising program, including our fully exclusive Legendary series of figures that will introduce Skylanders Trap Team to our enthusiastic customers this October.”
Skylanders: Trap Team is available for pre-order currently.
