I’m a little late to the party but here is all the info I got about the 3DS version of the Trap Team. Just like previous games the 3DS version of Skylanders Trap Team is a whole new adventure this time there will be villains exclusive to the 3DS title. Call it the add-on if you would like that is how I have always looked at 3DS Skylander games in the past. Alas, finally we are getting a multi-player function with this version of the game. To bad it is just to be able to play the Skystones game hopefully we will see a multi-player function in the future on the console versions as well. Doesn’t look like we will be using Trap Keys in this version of the title as well seeing as there is not one included. Now it looks like I will be having to pre-order the 3DS version as well. Will you be getting Skylanders Trap Team on 3DS? Check out the press release and all the images provided courtesy of Activision in the gallery. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
SKYLANDERS TRAP TEAMTM FOR NINTENDO 3DSTM
LETS PORTAL MASTERS CONQUER AND PLAY AS VILLAINS ON THE GO
Nintendo 3DS Delivers Complementary Experience to Console Game On October 5 with 14 Exclusive Villains, New Storyline and Two Skylanders Toys Not Available in Any Other Starter Pack
Fans Can Now Play Multiplayer Skylanders Skystones for the First Time on Nintendo 3DS
Skylanders Trap Team for Nintendo 3DS features an all-new adventure with its own levels, locations and gameplay. The game also uses the special features of the system, which gives players the ability to experience unique interactions with the captured villains. Additionally, Skylanders Trap Team on Nintendo 3DS introduces a multiplayer version of the fan-favorite card game Skylanders Skystones that uses Wi-Fi connectivity, marking the first time Portal Masters can play the mini-game with friends and family.
Skylanders Trap Team takes advantage of the interactive features of Nintendo 3DS in fun ways. For instance, after villains are defeated in combat, players can use the bottom Touch Screen to pull them out of the game and trap them in the Traptanium Vault. Then, once captured, players can use the Touch Screen and microphone to poke, tickle and spin villains to make them dizzy.
Using the Portal of Power® included in the Skylanders Trap Team Nintendo 3DS Starter Pack, players can load in their Skylanders characters directly into the system, allowing greater flexibility for playing on the go. Additionally, two powerful Skylanders characters will be available at launch only via the Nintendo 3DS Starter Pack — Gusto, a Trap Master with an oversized Traptanium Boomerang that delivers the ultimate blow to bad guys; and Barkley, the Mini version of Skylanders Giants’ Tree Rex.
Throughout the game, Portal Masters can summon captured villains to unleash devastating attacks and fight side-by-side with their Skylander. They can also play as captured villains in 13 unique villain “bootcamps” created by the evil Dream Sheep, the master villain in the game. Additionally, players can discover each Trap Master’s signature Trap Attack by collecting Traptanium orbs dropped by enemies when defeated, enabling players to wipe out evil foes with one awesome attack.
The Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders Trap Team also enables fans to play with all of the toys from Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure®, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders SWAP Force, enabling true cross-platform play. All of the characters’ abilities, levels and customization will carry forward into Skylanders Trap Team.
Skylanders Trap Team on Nintendo 3DS, developed by Beenox, will be available for $64.99 on October 5 in North America, October 2 in Australia and October 10 in Europe. The game is rated E10+ by the ESRB. For more information, visit:www.skylanders.com.
