I guess I found the name of the new Skylanders Game: Skylanders Trap Team. The game is listed for PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, XBOX One, Wii, Wii U and 3DS on Amazon Spain, maybe they will remove it soon.

Release Date: October 10th 2014

It makes sense Skylanders 4 will come out for the Wii again...Wii U is just really getting lambasted out there. Great system, but the numbers are not there and the Wii sales were, once again, a huge chunk of Skylanders sales...so you get the exponential figure purchases etc, which they want/need. I still don't have buyer's remorse for buying Wii U, cuz it is an AWESOME system...but the reality is that it just isn't selling.

This is crazy... I wonder if this has ever happened before; a title AND date being leaked right before the official announcement, and if this is actually true, considering it's been listed on more than one site. Amazon at least seems like a reputable source, but either way, I'd expect the information to be removed soon.

I do like the name "Trap Team", sounds cool, and makes me wonder what this next game could be about. Surprised but glad to hear it may also be for Wii in case I don't get a Wii U for my birthday. They just better have worked out the kinks this time (not that I couldn't deal with the freezes, but still, it would be nicer to have an experience with less bugs.)

That name, I'm not sure what to think... At all. The names we got last year (swap/nano force etc.) seemed pretty obvious. Swap force would involve... Well, characters with swapping parts. Nano force would have been smaller characters.

But who are the Trap Team? Characters with traps? Characters who are traps? Is the "trap" less literal? Are they evil characters turned good that'll be used to lure the enemies into a false sense of security?

I only say that last one because of these "villain" cards that were mentioned to be released in the collectable card packs.

I'm just giving a "huh" face right now.

Team insinuates multiple - so I figure
a) Multi-player over XBL or PSN finally
b) Automatic - computer controlled helper

Then I see 'Trap'...that's VERY specific - like 'Swap', but it sounds more 'defensive'. Maybe there will be some kind of Tower Defense mixed in (that could actually be pretty awesome if done well).

While this is cool if this is a valid link, I guess I'll still wait till next week for announcement.

Isn't "Trap" kinda historical for horse cart? So maybe it's just the battle carts we've seen in the new mega bloks sets. "Team" could just be the new "Force". The Swap Force is a group and the Trap Team could be a group as well or just the old guys in the battle wagons.

Wow, cool. I can't wait. The "starter pack only" thing doesn't mean HAVING to buy a new portal, they might just not have a portal owners pack listed yet.

The portal owners pack was a good way to reduce the price so I would be surprised if they didn't do that again if they could avoid it. 2 games with the same portal seems reasonable.

Guess we will find out more soon.

It excites me that it doesn't have 'Kart' or 'Racing' in the title. What 'trap team' could mean, I have no idea :S maybe it is more cooperative based, or puzzle based? Possibly not even 'new' characters, but more 'sidekick types that you can also control to help 'trap' enemies? Trap team has a lot of different ways it could go

It could me you can use two characters at once and swap instantly or they could fight next to each other at the same time.

Or Trap Team could me you are trapped (Not physically) and have no other option but to team with Kaos.

Mad theory, but hear me out. A 4x4 grid that could fit a Giant on each tile would fit in the same size of the Skylanders game packaging, I measured it out and it should work. A part of me is thinking back to this whole "Skylanders 4 will be a game changer" speech we got from TFB a few weeks back and the context of the meaning of the word "Trap" in "Trap Team" makes me think of... Board games.

Okay, example. We have a 4x4 grid that a certain number of "Traps Team" characters are placed on.

[User Posted Image]


On top of that, you can use other character(s) in a regular battle situation.

[User Posted Image]


Trap Team characters are invisible to the enemies and activated by a regular Skylander stepping on the tile that the Trap Team Skylander is on. But how about, as well as the heroes having traps skylanders and regular Skylanders... The villains do too.

[User Posted Image]


The villains, of course, aren't on your own physical grid placed by the player but are on the virtual grid in the game. These segments are used throughout the game (kind of like Skystones) and then when you're not playing the game this grid can be used as a regular portal - that supports 4 players.

On top of it's use in the game however, we also have it's use in the online mode. Two players, via the internet, battle against each other using their characters on the 4x4 grid using the same mechanic in the game itself.

So contents of the starter pack?

  • 4x4 Grid
  • 1 Core Skylander
  • 2 Trap Skylanders

The Trap Skylanders would also be used in game as regular characters but perhaps have an additional ability - or set of abilities like the Swap Force characters.

I did say it was mad.

Wow this certainly is the most mystifying title for Skylanders ever made. All the other titles were pretty straightforward, but this one makes you have to think what it could mean. I'm glad it isn't some generic title and they're being a little more creative this time. Let's hope the characters are amazing.

This new game seems to be as hastily made as Giants was . Ooh whole new Console and DS and lots more toys to collect .

The Trap Team are a covert highly trained special mission group of Skylanders specializing in trapping the Portal Master,s wallets filled seas of gold and redirecting the flow towards all skylander retail outlets .

Kaos prepare to be crushed by our entrapped wallets . smilie

Heh, I know this is just a random idea I came up with, but a while ago I actually had an idea like that. smilie //forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/vi...78&post=4993908 Not claiming that's what the official game would be but that's what Trap Team makes me think of. It's a really confusing title though.

I think that it may involve a special team of Kaos' minions who become Skylanders to try and trap the Portal Masters - they could then be involved in some sort of event which makes them true Skylanders, allowing them to be used in later games without breaking continuity. Whatever it is though, one thing is certain - Kaos will play a much bigger role than he has previously.

Wii? Wow...

I don't know what to think...



I have worked in our lokal Toy-Story for about 3 weeks while a special break for school. We got our mails in and appearantly, there where MORE boxes for the Wii incoming (skylanders SF)
And the WII vervions where the firts to got sold out. It makes sence. Lot's of famm's up and everywhere have a kid home, but not the money to buy a new console. The wii is a kid-friendly system lot's of famm still seem to have. Not everyone was sold away by seeing the Wii-U after all.

And god... I don't like the name realy that well, as it sounds like Trap Shadow too much. I'm pretty dissapointed in this name. On the other hand, it's not something activision would come upon in earlier stages. I mean, "Giants" was pretty a lame name and too obvious. "Spyro's Advanture" was a good name, but too obvious-or, not. If it were "Spyro's Advanture" WHY WERE THERE SO MANY OTHER SKYLANDERS BESIDES SPYRO!? Ok lol not realy but you got what I mean. Spyro wasn't even on the front in the official logo of it, Stealth Elf was...
"Swap Force" was a realy outstanding name IMO. It didn't give too much away of the game itself, only the Skylanders.


I've never typed this much in this section ;>.>

#38 Posted: 11:25:40 18/04/2014
Am I the only one that think that, just the name of course, is a huge rip-off of "Swap Force"?
Quite disappointed by the title. I hope it turns out to be fake.

And sorry, but I also don't like the idea of a table-strategy game. Just like for the karting idea: you want to make a minigame out of it? Great! But keep the main adventure as the other three games before it.

Gosh, it would be extremely sad and disappointing if either that Dolphin, Dragonfly or Bat Witch Skylanders were only some kind of unplayable helpers...
Thought I don't believe that much in it.

If I were in you, I wouldn't take it for granted: it looks more like a spin-off, to me...

Is there any chance that this is not what we think it is? I'm just having a hard time swallowing this, for a few reasons.

- The name just isn't all that great, as some have stated
- The name doesn't give much clue as to what it is, the way Giants and Swap Force did, as some have stated.
- Skylander is at the end of the full name and not plural. In all 3 other games, the name led with Skylanders and was plural.
- Why Team Trap and not Trap Team? Well this is on a Amazon Spain, and in Spanish, the adjective trails the noun, correct?
- Why does the listing begin with Starter Pack? None of the other game listings start at that way.
Perhaps the name was made up by an Amazon Spain employee?
- As mentioned, Team Trap is too similar to Trap Shadow
- It seems ridiculously early for a a pre-order to me.
- Why would Amazon Spain, or any retailer be told what the name is at this point? Sure, I'm sure Activision has been negotiating the rights to variants and release dates already, but it seems very unlikely that dept responsible for putting up items on the site would be need to be involved or aware at this point.

I guess what I'm saying, I won't be surprised if this turns out to be incorrect. I won't be surprised if it's correct either.


edit: The related thread on the Toys and Merch forum shows screenshots of the name being "Skylander Trap Team", not "Skylander Team Trap" as the screenshot on this thread does. Another reason to doubt that this is accurate.
