Activision has announced the latest entry in the Skylanders franchise, Trap Team, which sees players using new traps to capture villains.

Trap Team is being developed by Toys for Bob and Beenox, and features a new Traptanium Portal that allows players to use “Traps” to capture villains and make them fight for you. Once a villain is defeated, simply place the corresponding trap onto the portal and add that villain to your collection. Once captured the villain’s voice will come out of the portal. The place the trap on the portal a second time to summon them into the game world as playable characters.

The figurines that will be released alongside the game include new Trap Masters, core Skylanders, and re-posed fan-favorite skylanders. A Starter Pack is available for all platforms, priced at $74.99, which contains the new Traptanium Portal, two new Skylanders (Food Fight and Snap Shot), a poster, sticker sheets with codes, and trading cards.

Skylanders: Trap team is set to launch October 5 in North America and October 10 in Europe for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 3, 3DS, and Wii U.
