Hard to imagine what Activision could come up with after Skylander SWAP Force, right? Well, clear your shelves for Skylanders Trap Team, a new installment in the Skylanders toy-game series coming later this year, in October. The whole draw behind Trap Team -- and its name -- is being able to "trap" enemies inside special crystals, then use them as playable Skylanders. Heck, the new trailer even teases Kaos being playable.
Using the new Traptanium Portal, Portal masters can Trap their enemies in the living room and send them back into the digital world to fight on the good side. The new portal device also gives off sound effects for each respective Skylander toy, making that a first in the franchise, and a new "tag team" system makes switching between villains and heroes a lot easier. Note that the aforementioned "special crystals" are actually items you need to buy, being released for Trap Team alongside the new Wallop, Snap Shot, Chopper, and Food Fight toys.
Skylanders Trap Team is currently expected to arrive October 5, 2014, for just about every major platform; Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS versions are confirmed.
Now check out the new announcement trailer. Just be warned: it's beyond corny.
