So, it's basically confirmed you can now play as Kaos, your thoughts?

Seems quite interesting. I wonder if he's still going to be the main villain in the series? He's already established himself as a "permanent" villain (see: Bowser, Dr. Neo Cortex, Dr. Eggman/Robotnik, etc), so I wonder if the Kaos trap won't work in the next game (assuming that there will be another game that will allow the use of the traps).

Who knows? Maybe this is the last game in the series? I'm sure that it isn't.


And I'm gonna enjoy playing as the Chompy Mage.

Since they said they the crystals essentially turn the villains into "good guys", maybe this will be the last game that features Kaos as an enemy? Maybe he'll be an ally in future games. That's just my theory. I know others on site site aren't a fan of Kaos, but I enjoy him. I admit it does get a little repetitive seeing him game after game, so it would be ok if they gave him a break, but I don't want him gone from the villain's seat for good.

There's a few things they can do that can break that:

1. Play the 'Hahaha you actually captured my twin brother/clone/shapeshifting minion/Glumshanks transformed' cliché.

2. Kaos can only be captured at the very end of the game, and the sequel assumes he's escaped from you somehow (though I think TfB wouldn't go down this route, honestly).

3. Or the opposite. He can be captured early in the game, but is released at the very end.

4. It was all a dirty trick, he escapes regardless of if you capture him and replaces himself with a minion (again, I doubt this).

Not saying they'll do any of these, but right now anything is a possibility.

#13 Posted: 01:39:38 24/04/2014
I would assume as a future proof, the traps probably wont be used in future games, so the point would be moot. All the villains were returned to the prison along with Kaos, but then he escaped.

And since you wouldn't have any crystals any more, it wouldn't really matter.

Next game we might fight more of his family being them being the "bad guys" they are. Or maybe Kaos will finally realize that he can never beat the skylanders and that he will need their help to defeat his dad/grandma/grandpa/cousin/step cousin/etc

it could be seen as a temporary team up and i call upon old game memories of mario rpg for this one where bowser did team up with mario for a short time. it's also happened much in other mario games and even the sports ones they tolerate each other. in fact in may forms of literature sometimes a rival you end up teaming up with more than you wish due to the goals being the same. i doubt a game after this will allow the trap feature and they won't work with them meaning if they did make a 5th game it would be the first items that are not able to carry over.

From one point of view it could be seen as a finale due to using villains to fight along side you. Anything's possible at this point, but I don't see spectacular sales that acti is hoping for this time around.

They seem to say from the videos that you capture Kaos at the END of the game and on future play he does a commentary on your game for you from the prison smilie

I would assume the "he escaped" line for the next game. I doubt they will stick with traps as they abandon Giants and Swapping, so we can assume abandonment of traps in the next game.

This also hints that the next portal will have a new gimmick too, so a portal per game.

I think the idea of playing Kaos is the same as other enemies, once captured you control them for play, so "good" guys while you have them. If they escape then I assume the return to their old ways, so this leaves Kaos fine for Skylanders 5.

Get your wallets out folks.

Just speculating...
but maybe during capture process only 'part' of Kaos will be captured in the crystal. Maybe Glumshanks will save the day and in the very last moment he will save his master from complete imprisonment. The Kaos we will be able to play won't be so powerfull because of that but in the same time, the main Kaos will lose part of his power and he will have to co-op with someone in the 5th game.

Kaos will be playable in every levels... But... If they do that he'll never be the bad guy again!? And if they ''Release'' him in the skylanders *5*... I don't think that would be a good idea cuz you'll buy that key for nothing ?

If Kaos fought us 1 on 1 with absolutely nothing else (No Hydras, No Robots, Not evilized by petrified darkness) will he stand a chance?

Absolutely not

There's a circular loop problem here. you cant play as Kaos to capture Kaos in future playthroughs. Lou Studdert mentioned that there were limited locations you could play as him. Which would make since. Or maybe that's the point. To set up an alternate "Fringe" universe of Skylanders.

No you are not, I actually REALLY dislike the idea. My guess is I will only focus on playing with skylanders and use the just as a bounty hunting thing. I hope there are rare in game villians that are hard to find / capture.

Since the baddies don't level up, I also assume there is no tech tree for them. Meaning, we could probly just view them as an ability to borrow and extra couple of powers for our favorite characters.

If you can't use your captured villains in future games it would be a huge deal breaker for me, why spend time capturing them if they are only available in this game? It would be like only having Swap Force Characters work with their original bases and not allowing them to swap in STT.

Of course the traps will be obsolete in the next game!!!

What use are Giants in this one? Or Swappers? They have confirmed there are no Swap Zones and Giant Areas were already gone.

Traps will be scrap come Skylanders 5.

Get used to it.

Actually there's a difference.

You can use Giants. You can use Swappers. You just don't have unique content geared just for them in future games.

We're asking if you can literally be able to swap to a villain in Skylanders 5. It's a legitimate question given the investment.

Btw, I agree with your assessment, because the trend is "new portal", and they'd have to implement the voice and crystal mechanic in every portal moving forward.

Time for the suits to fess up, because they are starting to break their own tenant of backwards capability. My guess is that they will say that the crystal is not a "toy" and therefore does not apply. smilie

If there is a new portal on SK5, Traps will be gone.
If they let you keep it, maybe you will keep play as enemy, but I DOUBT it.

A bit early to start bagging on SK5 though.

My guess is Kaos will be playable in future games, but he will inexplicably also be the villain.
Since when have we expected anything better from Plothole Incorp- I mean Activision.

Using him sounds fun, though. And the plot holes will just help smilie live up to his name.

I posted this in another topic but it works with this discussion too:

So I know I'm like a year early on speculating the next game but I had an idea that would explain why we have crystals instead of actual enemy figures. It's assumed (or even verified, not sure) that you won't be able to use the crystals in the next game after trap team. What if the game after starts with the skylanders all 'buddy buddy' with the enemies, including kaos, but then kaos' mom comes back (from wherever she was sent to) and breaks the 'spell' on all the enemies so that they become evil again, and breaks the crystals in the process? That way the story still works and it's not a situation where you have characters you can't use for no apparent reason.

I know I'm like a year early in even speculating the next game but the idea came to me this morning
