Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), announced today that it will bring the complete Skylanders Trap Team videogame to tablets i at launch, marking the first time a full Skylanders® game will be available on iPad®, Kindle Fire and Android tablets day-and-date with the console version. The tablet version of the game delivers the same experience with console-quality graphics ii and comes with its own high performance controller, delivering yet another significant technological leap to the Skylanders franchise.
Skylanders Trap Team brings a ground-breaking innovation to the Skylanders franchise by reversing the magic of its signature Toys-To-Life™ play pattern to let kids bring life to toys. Skylanders Trap Team allows Portal Masters to seek out the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, defeat them and pull them out of the game into their living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Fans can then play as both heroes and villains who join the forces of good in an all-new adventure. Now, for the first time in franchise history, fans can experience a full Skylanders game on the go, wherever and whenever they want.The tablet version of Skylanders Trap Team upholds the same gameplay-driven adventure as the console version with console-quality graphics, ii complete with lush, expansive environments that push the technological boundaries of select tablet devices. Like the console version of the game, all toys will be cross-platform compatible, with all skills and upgrades intact. Skylanders Trap Team on tablet can be experienced two different ways:
- “Controller” – Fans can play the game just like the console version using the Bluetooth Traptanium Portal and toys with the custom Bluetooth Skylanders game controller included in the Tablet Starter Pack.
- “Touch Controls” – For players who prefer to use touch controls instead of a controller, fans have the option to play the game just using on-screen touch controls.
