Here’s the list of TRU US stores doing a midnight release. Check for your local one.
I recently posted about the Nintendo 3DS release of Skylanders Trap Team. There were some images within that post that let us know there were two new elements Light and Dark or Darkness and Brightness. What we didn’t know is what new Skylanders would be apart of these new elements. Well recently Matteomax from darkspyro.net posted a link to a French website that ran an article about the new elements and the names of the new characters. According to the article the new elements are “mini elements” due to them having only two characters in each element and the names of the new characters are Blackout and Spotlight.
Blackout is the Dark character and from what I can understand he is a core character that is a quadruped or four-legged creature that uses multi-directional shade or shadows and vortexes.
Spotlight is the Light character that is also a quadruped but it uses rings and lasers that work much like Prism Breaks beams.
There are also two other characters but we don’t know their names. The Dark elemental is a Centaur that wields a big sword and the Light elemental is a Guardian Angel/Warrior character. Both are believed to be Trap Masters but we don’t have anything official stating that yet. If you follow the Skylander Dad he did a video that showed a concept of an angel character that possibly is the Light character that is talked about in the article.
The article is written in French so my only understanding is what Google translator shows me. We do not know what these creatures will be but some have speculated that they will be spider-creatures others are hoping for hybrid dragons among other things. Whatever they are I know they will be cool and I can’t wait to see them in action. We still do not know what Villains or Doom Raiders will be in the Dark and Light elements but I’m sure we will find out soon.
For those of you that can understand French and want to see the article for yourself here is a link. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Thanks to darkspyro admin dark52 we now have basic conformation on the names of the Light and Dark Skylanders. According to the Walmart website Blackout and Spotlight are core characters priced at $9.99 and Knight-Light and Knight-mare are Trap Masters priced at $14.99. Knight-Light is the Angel Warrior and Knight-Mare is the Centaur creature. Thanks to dark52 for finding out this info.
