The fourth installment from the land of Skylands, Skylanders Trap Team, launches in South Africa today and as with it’s predecessors, it’s shaping up to open a world of adventure, imagination, humour and fun for kids, with a whole new spin on the game. 

Kaos has blown up the walls of the feared Cloudcracker Prison, freeing the most notorious villains in Skylands. It’s up to you and the Skylanders to find and capture them. Using Traptanium, a magic material that can harness the power of the Elements, you have the amazing ability to trap the villains and return them to Skylands to fight for you! Begin the ultimate adventure as you explore Skylands in search of the escaped villains!

As of February 2014, the Skylanders series has crossed the threshold of $2 billion in sales, with 175 million toys sold since 2011, making the series one of the top 20 highest-selling video game franchises of all time. And Trap Team promises to continue taking the franchise from strength to strength.
