There was some amazing news announced earlier this week. Skylanders announced that they are coming out with the 4th installment of the series, and it is more incredible than any of its predecessors. In early October, Skylanders will be releasing Skylanders: Trap Team™. Ever since the release of Skylanders: Spyro AdventuresV, we have all been huge fans of the series. Those of you that are new to the series, it all began in October of 2011. They release Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, along with all of the collectible, playable character figures. Each character has its own powers, its own level ups, and belongs to one of the element classifications.
Then came Skylanders: Giants, released in October of 2012. Activision also released a whole new series of the same characters, plus various new characters. They also released the Giants, which we much bigger than the standard characters, hence the name. The players from the first series are still completely compatible with this installment, which is what I love most about these games.
Then came Skylanders: SWAP Force , which was released in October of 2013, (seeing a pattern here?). Once again, a whole new series of characters was released, but you could still play the Series 1 and Series 2 on this game as well. They also released some all new characters, and the awesome SWAP Force characters. The SWAP Force characters have swap-able tops and bottoms. You can combined any of the swap-able characters, to create all new characters. It seriously genius, and you can help but want to collect each and every one.
Now they are releasing the most amazing of all the Skylanders Games. In October, they are releasing Skylanders: Trap Team
. Of course they will be releasing Series 4 characters, and with new characters to play and collect. They will also be releasing traps, that you can use to trap bad guys. Get this, after you trap the bad guys, you can put them on your team! That is by far the most amazing thing I have ever heard any game doing! I don’t know about you, but every game I have ever played, I have always dreamed of turning all of the awesome villains, into playable characters on my team. You do not have to wait until October to order this game.
You can preorder this game from several locations including Target, Toys R Us, and Amazon. The best place to order this game is Amazon. Amazon offers “Pre-Order Price Guarantee”. That means that if you order it, and the price goes down, they will honor that new price, and not hold you to the original order price. They offer this with any pre-order, games, movies, collectibles, so I always go with Amazon for my pre-ordering needs.
When the kids first saw the video that was posted on the Skylanders Facebook Page, they watched it 3 times in a row. I didn’t complain, because I was just as excited as they were! I wish we could have been there for the live announcement. That would have been so exciting! Activision Publishing, Inc. announced the new Skylanders: Trap Team Game at Affirmation Arts in New York City. It looks like it was a really great time. Some that attended the event even got to try out the new game. That would have been an absolute dream. Activision sure knows how to announce a game release!
