The news is finally here, the next entry in the Skylanders franchise will be called Trap Team. A teaser trailer and early details indicate it will feature a new game mechanic that allows you to trap enemies inside special crystal pieces and use them in the game.

We also got a first look at the two characters that will come with the starter set, Snap Shot and Food Fight.

So far I have mixed feelings about how the new trap system will work. On one hand I applaud the creativity and introduction of a new mechanic, but on the other hand I wonder how the trap crystals will be sold. Skylanders toy prices have mostly stayed in line with what I consider to be reasonable for their quality and value. That said, I’m not sure I see myself paying anywhere near $10 for one of these trap pieces. I’m guessing they will be sold bundled with other figures and adventure packs.

We will continue to update you as new Trap Team details are released. No date for the game has been announced yet, but in keeping with tradition I’d expect an October/November 2014 release.
