Earlier today the official Skylanders website updated to include (almost) all of the brand new Skylanders and Villains that you'll be able to play as in Skylanders: Trap Team.


You can see all of the villain artwork in much greater detail than we've previously seen on the poster, as well as a few new trap moulds including a Snake, a Sword, and a Rocket along with several others. They also each have a short audio line as well as their theme music.

The Skylanders each have their own full sized artwork, a small image of the toy, a few screenshots and a video along with their backstory, card stats and audio catchphrase. Amongst all of that one brand new Skylander variant has been unveiled, as seen above it's a Legendary Deja Vu. No sign of any of the mystery Skylanders just yet.

Also announced today was a brand new game mode debuting in Trap Team called "Kaos Doom Challenge". In it you will be fighting waves and waves of enemies that Kaos is sending to attack you, you'll be able to build special defense towers that help you to keep them away from the "Mystery Box of Doom" which unleashes a gigantic villain if opened.

Quote: Kaos

A recent evil study of a thousand trolls revealed that nine out of ten agree that I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer to have ever conquered Skylands. Naturally, I had every tenth one banished to my "Kaos Doom Challenge" to test the effectiveness of my 100 waves of ultimate evil doom - and they were never heard from again. So let's just say EVERYONE agrees - I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer ever.


There are a few videos going through a few waves by The Skylander Boy And Girl and Coin-op TV that you can check out to get a better idea of exactly what this mode is going to be like.

After a slightly blurry glimpse earlier in the week the official Skylanders Facebook page has provided us with a much larger and clearer version of the Starter Pack poster. Click on the image below to see it at full size:

The poster includes names for the four remaining unnamed Trap Masters:

  • Enigma (Magic)
  • Tuff Luck (Life)
  • Thunderbolt (Air)
  • Short Cut (Undead)

As well as names for several new core Skylanders:

  • Cobra Cadabra (Magic)
  • Echo (Water)
  • Trail Blazer (Fire)
  • Fling Kong (Air)

The only Skylanders we still don't know the names of are the three Frito-Lay Skylanders and whoever those four question marks represent in the top right corner.

The poster also lists names and elements for nearly all of the villains, including a couple of new "Super" villains Dreamcatcher and Golden Queen, but again there are two Super Villains still hidden behind question marks along with six of the regular villains.

In previous games the sidekicks simply followed your characters around not doing much, in Skylanders: Trap Team that's all going to change. Now known as "Mini Skylanders" the existing eight have been reissued and joined by a new set of eight mini versions of previous characters and they have all been promoted to fully playable Skylanders.

Each of the Mini Skylanders will be just as upgradeable as their larger counterparts featuring miniaturised versions of their attacks. The eight new Mini Skylanders are as follows:

Weeruptor, Small Fry

Pet-Vac, Breeze

Spry, Drobit

Bop, Hijinx

The eight previously released sidekicks will also be given a rerelease with a red base but your existing green and orange base versions will function exactly the same as the new ones. The Minis will be sold in double packs retailing for $13.99.

I forgot to post it before but I recently completed my walkthrough to the console version of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure with the expansion level Dragon's Peak. I have also now finished off the 3DS guide to the same adventure pack.

And with E3 2012 just next week (June 5th-7th), expect news about the upcoming sequel, Skylanders: Giants, some time soon.
