Looks like a spin-off game, like Battlegrounds and Lost Islands.


Agree (if that's the name, "Baa-ttle Flag" definitely doesn't sound like a main-console game title) and, I remember to you that Trap Team for tablet has quite awesome graphics, so, that doesn't mean much.


And usually the main console games are named after a new group of Skylanders, like how they named the previous titles "Trap Team", "Giants", and "Swap Force".

Also true, the name suits perfectly a spin-off smartphone app.

If this is a first person shooter spin off, that'll be pretty amazing . All the characters you can see in the screens are ranged attack fighters mostly so it makes sense .

I don't know if it'd be a tablet/phone exclusive game coz i think you really need a controller for this type of shooter to make it good and a shooter would definitely sell better on a console then devices ecspecially for 4 player. And really if any of you played plants v zombies garden warfare (awesome simple online co op shooter, cheap too) this feels similar.

It's about time skylanders starting branching out , they have soo many characters designed its a waste not to do anything with them.

Although I spose it could make sense for device only if they made it work through the trap team tablet starter pack with the portal and controller , you'd just have to download the game app. It certainly would help them sell more trap team tablet packs this late in the run.

This could be a Mini Game mash up sort of game, like Mario party. There is a bunch of different Mini-games that allow you to use you're skylanders without having your skylanders on the portal all the time. Its multiplayer is much larger than the previous games and it could allow online play!

That isn't what she meant she meant that even though the picture is not very clear it still looks like the game has really good graphics similar to that of SSF's and STT's.

Smash Bros. 4 has fantastic online and a MASSIVE amount of content. Mario Kart 8, while lacking a few things, has very good content and pretty fun online. I feel your taking it over board.


He's right though. Sometimes online takes away resources. Rocksteady has specifically stated that the reason Batman Arkham Knight won't have online is because it would be a waste of resources and would take away from the main game.

Mario Kart 8 is still unbalanced in terms of characters and itemization (though it's far far superior than the mess Wii was)

All that content in Smash 4 stinks though and let's be honest, the online isn't really all that great outside of For Fun mode. For Glory is just Sakurai misunderstanding competitive play by making every stage Final Destination instead of an actual balanced stage like Battlefield. Classic Mode is a pain to get through and you have to pay money in order to play on higher difficulties and all that does is make the AI more likely to read your inputs or the game to screw you over with stage hazards. Target Blast is just Angry Birds lite. Smash Tour is a huge, un-fun mess. All Star is poorly balanced with certain AI attacks having more knockback and KO power. Event mode doesn't feel as fun or varied in events as Melee.

Though the problem with Smash 4's content isn't because resources went into online it was because the 3DS ruined development of the Wii-U version. When they announced that Ice Climbers was cut because the 3DS couldn't handle it, I knew the Wii-U version wasn't going to be as good as it should've been.

On one hand, I'm excited about the idea that Skylanders might be branching out and having spin-offs again. Seriously, if there's one thing that Skylanders would be perfect for, its spinoffs. The fact that the characters themselves save data is too perfect for the concept. They should be able to have all sorts of adventures, not the same ones time and time again.

On the other hand, this looks like a shooter. I really, really don't like shooters. *shudders, mumbling something about Agent 9 and ninja Rhynocs* Sad, since I'd really like to support Skylanders spinoffs if I could, but I wouldn't want this one. Oh well, hope this is a real thing and that it succeeds. It might actually breathe new life into the franchise if Activision realizes the potential.

I know folks are frothing at the mouth a bit over this, but companies do internal game jams a lot. It's a way of trying out new ideas and experimenting, as well as having a bit of fun. There's more chance that the stuff in this image will never see the light of day in any form than there is of it actually being part of any kind of future Skylanders game. So don't get too excited or too depressed.

I can tell you I was genuinely enthusiastic about Swap Force. I was meh on Trap Team. Last two games have been along a too similar track (ie the first two games). Time to break new ground in the game itself or I will be another Mr. Grumpy. They've not paid the software any service and I'm overrun with toys.

What if all this "game-changing" mentality actually ruins the game, instead of improving it...?

I want a Skylanders game.
Nothing different.

There are other games for that.

I'm hoping this isn't an indication that Skylanders 5 will have online multiplayer. If it does, I'm out of the Skylanders game. Immediately.

Online multiplayer is the worst thing to happen to gaming since, well, ever. It sucks resources from the single player side of things, and it allows for gamers to overlook shortfalls on story, innovation, gameplay, etc. because, hey, who cares about the single player if we can play another pointless, recycled online deathmatch, right (sarcasm)?

Nothing signifies the death of a game or franchise like smashing online multiplayer into the package, whether or not it makes a damn bit of sense with the game in question. With resources diverted to some stupid online functionality, I guarantee that #5 will not only be the worst of the franchise, it will kill off the fanbase. Some will leave because we know how bad online multiplayer is for franchises and we won't want to see the carnage, others will drop when the main game turns out poorly... and it will, I promise you. We are already losing people to franchise fatigue, and a bad game will be just the excuse they need to stop caring completely.

Skylanders, to me, is a game that is defined by its characters. I love the collecting and hunting for the newest toys, but the game itself sees its strongest point in the characters. They all have different looks and powers. They all have clever little backstories and they all fall seamlessly into the concept of an ever-expanding army of warriors gathered to protect the lands they love. Online multiplayer would strip all this right out. It will become another generic game where which character you choose doesn't matter anywhere near as much as an itchy trigger finger and the ability to be racist, sexist and homophobic over an online mic. Strong characters and story is the antithesis of online multiplayer, and one cannot exist in the same space with another. If Skylanders adds online, it will simultaneously lose whatever heart and soul it has built up to this point.

So, yeah, this really saddens me. If drags me even further down to see people excited for online multiplayer, as they don't seem to realize what they will be giving up for a game mode that is pointless and doesn't fit with the series.

I don't want to sound condescending, if I come off that way, I apologize - its not the intent.

Are you crazy? Have you actually looked at the AAA titles with heavy multiplayer like CoD? Yes resources go to multi-player, but I'd wager that more resources are actually spent on the 'no one plays this' single player experience. They hire actual ACTORS.

And not even going THAT far, you do realize that while you'r bashing the multi-player experience, the reason so many resources go towards it is because *gasp* PEOPLE LIKE IT. If you go back and check this forum, I'd wager 9/10 people have asked for online multi-player at some point in the series. NOTHING adds more replay value than 'adding more people'.

And to sort of 'bash' Skylanders - you mention the individuality of the characters, yet - at least to me, Spyro is Ryu, High Five is Ken, Dro-Bot is Akuma, etc. The game is FILLED with like 100 characters, but only like 10 actual powers, just mixed and matched onto characters who have 'interesting backgrounds'...that are NEVER EXPLORED OR MENTIONED IN THE GAME. Frankly, outside of going to a web-page, I can't tell you SQUAT about any characters backstory, it's actually pretty irrelevant. Call a spade a spade, Skylanders is a kids game, it is not deep, and you get out of it what you want to get out of it. The game and series won't be worse for wear by adding in multiplayer options. Not only is the big brother to all of this Activision, who have been doing multi-player games as long as anybody, but I have to ask, what resources would be lost by looking at multi-player? The game is now at the "no FMV" point, the plot isn't exactly "Shaw Shank Redemption", realistically most of the level of effort is tied into level design and new figures.

And hey - most multi-player is BASED off EXISTING single player maps/levels

So calm down about the possible addition, it's not going to 'hurt' anything. Frankly they could give us a brand new game with NO new characdcters and a lot of us would be happy.
- Unreall


So you don't want to sound condescending, but you then go on to intentionally be condescending? Good one.

Anyway aside from wanting to point that out. I am hopeful that if this is anything that's going to see the light of day, that it's a new form of PVP game within Skylanders 5.

Now please excuse my ignorance, I only play Skylanders and don't play any other console games at all. So I don't understand how online multi-player works. So on the off chance that S5 does have multi-player, I assume that I can still play it by myself as a single player offline? Nothing personal but I don't really feel the urge to play the game with any of you.

That being said it would be tempting if my fully upgraded, done all their quests and HC Skylanders were as powerful as they should be compared to one that's simply been leveled up and upgraded. It would be tempting to pit mine against other people's. And it would be fascinating to see who you other guys and girls would choose as your go to Skylanders, given that some of you love some Skylanders that I find hard to use or downright lame.

Also I assume that if online is available that there doesn't have to be any communication between players? Making it more kid safe and eliminating the concern about people being racist, sexist etc over their online mics? Given that it is a kids game.

Are my assumptions correct?

No, that would be too much.

As I already said a lot of times, in my opinion SWAP Force is far from being a terrible game.
It's just... Well, too far from what a Skylanders game should be.

That being said, I'm already taking in consideration a change in the art and design style, a nerf of most of the old Skylanders and excessive focus on game modes and extras, rather than the main Story and core gameplay.
Happy to be wrong.

We are always excited and interested when there is something new.

Do I have to remember you the night Trap Team was revealed...? smilie


I can tell you I was genuinely enthusiastic about Swap Force. I was meh on Trap Team. Last two games have been along a too similar track (ie the first two games). Time to break new ground in the game itself or I will be another Mr. Grumpy. They've not paid the software any service and I'm overrun with toys.


I ask myself... What if this won't turn out good...?

What if all this "game-changing" mentality actually ruins the game, instead of improving it...?

I want a Skylanders game.
Nothing different.


There are other games for that.


Good for you. So if they break new ground, you can always play any of the first four games RIGHT NOW and get exactly that. I want them to get a little more daring. Want more scroll shooters? More gates? More hats? More story scrolls? More story chapters? Not I. And I'm ok either way. I have a response for either approach they take. Only one will warrant a purchase, though.

swap force wasnt bad you just need to grow and know its not TFB



It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. No skippable dialog, 30+ seconds of loading screens for one level, Rufus greeting you and taking up like 2 minutes of your time every time you switched on the game, 40 minute long levels, terrible story (that's an opinion), Cartoony-like graphics, etc.

I thought I liked Swap Force style length, but after playing Trap Team...TfB hit the sweet spot on chapter length. Graphics have good and bad to them--there's annoyances in TfB graphics for me as well. There's no accounting for taste.

Sure, I want that too, but... How far will they be able to push the innovation before it is no more "Skylanders" and becomes something else...?

I have faith in V.V., I think they learned from their mistakes, and understood what they can and cannot do.

Swap force did have a lot of good points too ..
like a lot of things yo do after the story was done . Extra mission maps, extra challenges. Even if they were all pretty mini gamey.
Also had a lot more things to buy/ do with your money in the shop .
And I really liked that the legendary treasures actually did something , give universal extra armour or experience.
Also adding health increases to some hats.

Sadly these things weren't continued at all in trap team.
Hopefully sky 5 will be a combination of both trap and swaps good points
