Activision have announced that they will be releasing a special Dark Edition
of their upcoming videogame-toy hybrid Skylanders Trap Team
. This box set will include a few extra features compared to the standard edition, including the "Ultimate Kaos Trap", which gives you control over the series' main nemesis - Kaos himself!
In addition, players will also be able to make use of dark (i.e. black and silver) versions of new characters Snap Shot, Wildfire and Food Fight. If that still doesn't satisfy, then the collection is rounded out with a double sided ultimate collector poster and some sticker sheets and trading cards. Neato!
The Dark Edition
is expected to retail for close to $99 on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. You can start your trapping when the new Skylanders
is released on October 5th in North America and October 10th in Europe.
If you are lucky enough to be attending the Comic-Con in San Diego on July 24th, be sure to check out the "Skylanders: The Creative Process of Bringing Toys to Life" panel, which will include some news about new Skylanders
characters. There's also some sweet cash prizes to be won for those brave enough to cosplay as their favorite Skylanders
