Activision's Skylanders expands its reach

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Activision expands the reach of its most popular kids’ game franchise ever.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Combining physical toys with a video game has made the Skylanders franchise a huge success for Activision.   The latest version, Skylanders Trap Team, add a whole new way to play.   Activision’s Noah-Kircher Allen…

“In this game, you’ll actually be tracking down villains.   Skyland’s most wanted who’ve escaped from prison and trapping them in magical pieces of Traptanium, these small crystals.  And then once you trap a villain, you can now play as that villain.  So players, also for the first time, can now play as bad guys inside the game.”

The starter kit will set you back about 75 dollars….and you’ll need it because the portal you need to play is all new.   Game characters from previous generations will still be playable though.   And Skylanders Trap Team is available on more platforms than ever…including Android and iOS tablets.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
