Skylanders Trap Team is the new game in the Skylanders universe and the first to be released day and date on the iPad along with the console version. Not only that, but it’s the same game. This is a first, as far as we know, for any game.

Skylanders is also known as the first game that pairs a video game with a collectible hardware element. Skylanders figures and other pieces are used to change the game and provide new characters to play. This is done through the Portal of Power, a $75 Bluetooth base that also includes a joystick that can be used for the game. Also included with the Portal of Power are a couple figures to use in the game. These figures are placed on the base and through the magic of NFC appear in the game.
