The seemingly unending Skylanders will soon have a new title along with another set of toys before the years end on Nintendo platforms. Titled Skylanders: Trap Team, players will be able to recruit bosses for the first time in the series.
Players don't recruit the villains as much as they "trap" them once they are defeated. Interestingly enough, the captured bosses can actually yell at the player when inside of the trap through the speakers. Traps only work on bosses if they are of the same element meaning that those who pick up Trap Team will also need to buy some of the eight traps separately to acquire every boss. While a new series of toys will release alongside Trap Team, previous toys are still compatible with the game.
Skylanders: Trap Team releases this year, October 10, exclusively on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
