Skylanders Trap Team for Nintendo 3DS features an all-new adventure with its own levels, locations and gameplay. The game also uses the special features of the system. For instance, after villains are defeated in combat, players can use the bottom Touch Screen to pull them out of the game and trap them in the Traptanium Vault. Then, once captured, players can use the Touch Screen and microphone to poke, tickle and spin villains to make them dizzy.
Additionally, Skylanders Trap Team on Nintendo 3DS introduces a multiplayer version of the card game Skylanders Skystones that uses Wi-Fi connectivity, marking the first time Portal Masters can play the mini-game with friends and family.
Using the Portal of Power included in the Skylanders Trap Team Nintendo 3DS Starter Pack, players can load in their Skylanders characters directly into the system, allowing greater flexibility for playing on the go. Additionally, two Skylanders characters will be available at launch only via the Nintendo 3DS Starter Pack — Gusto, a Trap Master with an oversized Traptanium Boomerang that delivers the ultimate blow to bad guys; and Barkley, the Mini version of Skylanders Giants’ Tree Rex.
The Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders Trap Team also enables fans to play with all of the toys from Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders SWAP Force, enabling true cross-platform play. All of the characters’ abilities, levels and customization will carry forward into Skylanders Trap Team.
