Kids everywhere are talking about Skylanders. All the young kids I know have Skylanders on their mind and on their wish lists for birthdays and holidays. Just in time for the upcoming holidays Activision Publising has announced the upcoming release of the Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack. Now your kiddos can take the fun with them on the go. Have a road trip coming up? Need to keep your kiddos entertained during their siblings piano lessons? The Tablet Starter Pack which is being released on October 5th will include a Bluetooth® Traptanium PortalTM; an embedded Bluetooth® controller to provide the best gameplay experience possible; a built-in tablet stand; two Skylanders characters; two Traps and a display tray that lets Portal Masters keep track of the Traps they’ve collected and which villains they have trapped.
Let their imagination run wild with physical traps, which brings their toys to life. At home, on the go, and especially during a Skylanders Trap Team play date with all of their buddies, the magic of Skylanders comes alive at the tips of your fingers. The best part? All of the toys will be cross-platform compatible, so your children can continue where they left off when they switch between the console and the tablet versions! No starting over, no loss of skills and all the upgrades they’ve worked hard for travel with them. There will be 50 new playable Skylanders heroes and 40 new villians, with unique tag team gameplay!
Players will have the option of using a “controller” or “touch controls” during game play. Players can use either the included Bluetooth Traptanium Portal and toys with the custom Bluetooth Skylanders game controller or the on-screen touch controls.
The Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack will be available on a variety of iPad®, Kindle Fire and Android tablets; Xbox One and Xbox 360 games and entertainment systems from Microsoft; PlayStation®4 system; PlayStation®3 system; Nintendo’s Wii™ system and Nintendo’s Wii U™ system. A different, unique adventure also will be available on the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.
Consoles can be expensive. Having a tablet option makes this fun and imaginative play more affordable for everyone. The ESRB rating has been set at E10+. A great opportunity for children to play not just with their friends, but with mom or dad too! It used to drive me crazy to see Papa playing electronic/video games with the kids. The reality….it doesn’t matter what they are doing, so long as they are doing it together!
