Wii? Wow...

I don't know what to think...



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.


I guarantee you their botch job of the last game on the Wii will mean one of two things: 1. they pissed off many customers off the franchise or 2. they've decided to keep the franchise and move to another platform. Either case, I suspect sales will be even less this time around.

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.


If they do what they did with Giants, they'll include 3 characters with the portal, or only one without. For completionists, we'll be left biting our nails if they plan on releasing singles of the others.

Curious.. the domain skylanderstrapteam.com was only registered 11 days ago to someone in Malaysia.

http://www.whois.com/whois/skylanderstrapteam.com

The .net and .org domains are unregistered as of this post. The domain trapteam.com is registered to 20th Century Fox Film Corporation (a possible film title? IMDB has nothing), but this domain expires this June. Possible sale to Activision? It is registered via the same registrar (Markmonitor, Inc.) that Activision normally uses.

http://www.whois.com/whois/trapteam.com

The plot thickens....

Wait, does anybody know what Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, Giants, and Swap Force were called in spanish? Its a Spanish Amazon, so maybe the name might be different in translation? (Crazy thought, I know)


If you search on Amazon.es, it's:

Skylanders Spyros Adventure
Skylanders 2012 - Starter Pack (Incluye Portal)
Skylanders: Swap Force - Starter Pack

And again, we have screenshots with it called Trap Team, and with it called Team Trap.

I am skeptical.

They're probably not gonna register a separate domain this time. They can keep the original Skylanders.com and update that instead.

They probably don't want to register the name ahead of announcement to prevent people catching on.
If some random person has grabbed this I fully expect them to lose it in court as this is a clear case of trying to cash in on somebody else's copyright.
There are rules against registering other peoples trademarks just to make money off it.

I agree just using Skylanders.com is the best option. If they really want to buy up the variants of game names there are a lot to buy and it's a hiding to nowhere with spelling mistakes etc.

I don't think the domain means much.

Wouldn't they buy the domain to have it redirect to Skylanders.com? If I recall,that happened to the first two games. Though it's kind of weird someone in Malaysia guessed the name for the new game and went through the trouble of buying a web domain...

The 8 will get reposes. Count on it...trig, spyro, whirlwind, terrafin, stealth elf, gilly, eruptor, chop chop...I've bought my last repose of them. Your only hope is that they have 16 reposes and they fill in the alternate slots. I would buy a repose of GR, Wham Shell and Sunburn IF they are Series 2 and not a lightcore.

I think they're going to repose Jet-Vac and Prism Break. They seem to use those two more when it comes to merchandise. Hotdog is just wishful thinking.

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...


The main adventure needs a huge overhaul,--going through a pre-defined static course to the end ain't gonna do it. The board game stuff sounds like a nifty strategy thing that can work just like the card game did in Giants if they interweave that into gameplay. Bottom line--more of the same = less dollars from me. They've proven how they can innovate gameplay but keep the core intact...but imo more change is needed with this entry.

"Something secret, something powerful."

Apparently, we'll find out soon. So... Something about a box in the next Skylanders game? The game has something to do with a box? The box being the main focus of the plot or linked to the new type of Skylanders themselves?

Skylanders: Spyro's Box


Hmmph, There might not be a character in there, but maybe something related to the plot? A special item for the Portal? A trap?


That is a pretty neat box, though.

Maybe this is just a stretch, but could there be a theme of "wood" in Skylanders 4? It might not be wood literally, but like trees, or nature or something like that. It does seem to overlap a little with the Life element, but it's just a theory. Here's why:

Skylanders just put up a pic (shown above) of a wooden box on their FB page to tease the new game. Also, if anyone's seen FGTV's video where they received their invitation to the release event, the invite actually came packaged with a wooden key with an RFID chip inside that interacted with the invitation.

Coincidence? Probably. But there's nothing else to do but speculate until the official announcement.

Oh! Yeah, I got it, sorry!
Actually, it would be really weird to have either Trap Shadow in Trap Team, or Free Ranger (and potentially Ranger) in Ranger Team...
Maybe Ranger was just a placeholder name?

It's choppy but here;
For nearly three years, and the output of the first Skylanders, each year sees arrive its new iteration with its batch of additional miniatures to even to make ironing board pepe and even to the body. But if the first two years, small monsters of Activision have climbs the charts world without resistance, lack of competition, things have changed the last year with the arrival of Disney Infinity, which despite of the faults and use less relevant miniatures, has managed to get them to waver on their base ... This year, to stay on top and avoid losing yet of market shares, Activision must therefore strike hard while Disney Infinity 2.0 , is on the horizon for a probable output this summer ... For the moment, little official information but of small malignant have note on different sites merchants (including Amazon.es) the emergence of a Skylanders Trap Team planned for the October 10, 2014 on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, 3DS, Wii U and more surprising, on Wii ... Then is this a code name? For the moment, we will remain cautious especially that should be fixed in a few days, since Activision has planned a special conference the April 23, 2014, either, as if by chance, a week before the conference of Disney on Disney Infinity 2.0 , seated on the April 30, 2014! Of course, we will keep you informed.

Update on the skylanderstrapteam.com domain... It appears that it's not randomly registered to 'someone' in Malaysia. They are using "Whoisprotection.cc" which is a "whois privacy service which helps to shield domain registrant actual information from being see publicly" that just happens to show the registration info coming out of Malaysia. It's all a ruse so they do not have to register 3 or 4 domains like they have done in the past. Triggers to Happy's says that sometime soonish after the 23rd the registration will switch over to Markmonitor and Activision...

I found out that there are currently 305 domains registered with the word "skylander" in them. None of them are particularly interesting except for the trapteam one. For anyone who is interested, you can view all 305 domain name variations here:

http://www.namedroppers.com/b/...ame=1&display=0

The capcha on the whois stinks, but just open it in a different tab each time.
