Hidden away in a trailer for today's Trap Team on Tablets news announcement was a shot of the full character poster that will be included with the regular Skylanders: Trap Team Starter Packs, thereby showing off a slightly blurry first look at the remaining new Trap Masters, the new Core characters, a bunch of new Sidekicks based on existing pre-Trap Team characters as well as a whole load of capturable villains.

The names are not on there and there are still several secret Skylanders and villains marked on the poster so there's still a lot left to find out before the launch of the game in October. And perhaps even beyond if they intend to keep up those mystery entries.

Thanks to forum member ZapNorris for spotting the poster.

Just announced today is a fully fledged tablet version of Skylanders: Trap Team, developed by Vicarious Visions the new tablet starter pack contains the same figures and traps as the regular console starter packs but it also contains a bluetooth version of the Traptanium Portal of Power and a custom bluetooth controller.

*Kaos Trap not included in Starter Pack

The game looks and plays almost exactly like the console versions but you have the option to use the included bluetooth gamepad or the touchscreen controls. To make it even more portable if you don't have the Portal of Power turned on you can use two digital "Instant" versions of Snap Shot and Food Fight to allow you to keep playing even without any toys around.

To see footage of the game in action on a tablet check out videos by The Skylander Boy and Girl, FamilyGamer TV and Coin-op TV.

The full list of compatible devices is as follows:

  • Apple iPad 3rd Generation, iPad 4th Generation, iPad Mini Retina, iPad Air
  • Kindle Fire HDX (7" & 8.9")
  • Google Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro (8.4", 10.1", 12.2")
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4", 10.5")
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

The tablet version will be released at the same time as the regular editions, October 2nd in Australia, October 5th in North America and October 10th in Europe.
