Skylanders is redefining the toys-to-life phenomenon with yet another groundbreaking innovation, Skylanders Trap Team. In previous Skylanders games, physical toys were brought to life inside the game; with Skylanders Trap Team, the magic is reversed by bringing characters out of the game, into physical 'Traps' that kids can take with them, effectively bringing life to toys.
In Skylanders Trap Team, Kaos continues his ongoing quest to rule over Skylands. He has discovered the location of the legendary Cloudcracker Prison – a fortress built entirely out of the magical substance Traptanium and home to Skylands' most nefarious baddies. In an attempt to build his own army of foes, Kaos blows up the prison, releasing the most wanted villains and blasting shards of Traptanium to Earth in the form of Traps. Now it's up to Portal Masters to recapture all of the escaped villains using powerful Traptanium Traps and defeat Kaos before it's too late!
Skylanders Trap Team introduces a groundbreaking innovation that lets Portal Masters 'trap' the most wanted villains in Skylands and then play as them in the battle for good. The game offers an unprecedented new addition to the play pattern in the form of Traptanium Traps. When this new type of toy is placed directly onto the Traptanium Portal, Portal Masters can 'capture' a variety of special villains from the game and magically transport them from Skylands into the real world.
