seeing as there is 40 enemies to catch this means that if 1 catches 4 villians in one then there will be one key of each element and then two new elements maybe kaos and eon keys will be a new element there holding something big back

Of course they are. They aren't going to spill all of the beans at once.

IMO, it's setting up for a game in which we CAN get villain figures.

We already have a thread for this. Please close.

IF one crystal can catch 4 villains.... how do you decide which one you are playing as?

You don't. No one has provided links saying you can store 4 on the figure. When you view the demo, it's simple button press...so in my mind only one is on the crystal. You simply go to the hub and switch em out on the figure when you need it--or---if Activision has their way...you'll have one crystal for every villain.

They keep saying OVER 40 enemies. So I'm guessing 49. 48 / 8 = 6 per element, plus Kaos. (or 41)

While maybe not 4 villains per crystal, it has been said you can use one crystal to trap more than one enemy. Maybe only one villain is saved on a crystal at a time and if you capture a different villain, the previous villain gets overridden. This is a scary thought because people that want every villain captured and ready to use would need multiple crystals of each element/variety...

As for the black/Kaos crystal, it doesn't necessarily have to be a new element, just a unique key to capture perhaps the main bosses like Kaos and others like Glumshanks, Kaos's mom, etc.

or maybe if a villain is already captured on a crystal and you use it, the 2nd villain goes straight to the prison that is apparently part of the hub.

It'll either be an option in the Hub, or they might reassign the D-Pad to switch between trapped villains. I'm betting on the former, hoping on the latter.

Will you need over 40 crystals to contain the 40-plus villain characters? No. Any villain that is captured can either be sucked up into the crystal for immediate play or retired to the prison located in the hub world. The player can visit this location to switch out villains.

I was just about to come here to edit my post with that, but you beat me to it. Honestly, it's not a bad move, and it reduces the amount of crystals we need to get all of the baddies.

And, presumably, if you don't have a Trap of the correct element you can store a villain in the prison and load them onto a Trap when you do have the correct element.

I imagine capturing guys is how you end/beat stages. You may need to get a wide variety of crystals however to be able to play everyone.

Though if we are capturing Kaos, this is gonna hurt they're ability to do sequels.

I was hoping hoping they'd go back and redo at least the first game to make it to where it would receive updates to play all the new Skylanders that come out, but not at the expense of getting no new Skylanders.

All in all. A bit disappointed. Not sure if I'm even gonna buy this game.

Glad heroic challenges are gone. Imagine doing 165 per skylander. That's 27225 challenges. No thank you.

Yup, so then you'll need to go back to access certain areas that only certain Villain can access.

Not necessarily. Context wise, they could do anything they want, especially since it seems like plot lines don't carry over from previous games (How did Kaos and Glumshanks get un-Swapped?) They could also say that "oh, the Portal Masters returned all the Villains to the Prision".

Likely, they just wont even mention it.

They could like... Willingly swap back. Like the decision for the Swap Force characters to swap.

Just because you make chaos good doesn't mean he can't find a way to become evil again. I mean the trap is what is suppose to make them good so in theory he could find a way to reverse that or even break out of the trap. This could introduce another bad guy that breaks chaos out at the end of the game. there is so many ways they can take this.

I don't really like the idea of the crystals... how are you supposed to look at your trap collection and figure out which villain is in which trap? I don't have that memorization... I can see if they have a load trap it would be easy, but just a color...

For most players, it'll become memory recognition.

Only a few weeks into the game, I knew the name of any character from the first 3 games when I saw one. Give me another month/two, I can almost perfectly spout off every character from each element from memory.

The villains you trap/start playing with -- you will begin to relate them to a certain trap you have it and boom, you'll just know that this trap can use x, y, b, and z villains. Where's Shrednaught? Oh yeah, blah-blah trap.
