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 lets Portal Masters “trap” the most wanted villains in Skylands and then play as them in the game in the battle for good. The game offers an unprecedented new addition to the game’s play pattern in the form of Traptanium Traps. When this new type of toy is placed directly into 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. Skylanders Trap Team also will reverse the magic of bringing toys-to-life, letting kids take characters out of the digital world and bring them into the physical world, pulling villains out of the game and into living room. Players can then send them back into the game where they play as them to fight for good.
