Skylanders Trap Team Announced Coming To Nintendo Platforms

Skylanders is redefining the toys-to-life phenomenon with yet another ground-breaking innovation, Skylanders Trap TeamTM. On October 5 in North America, Activision Publishing, Inc, will introduce the newest installment to the Skylanders franchise, which will reverse the magic of bringing toys to life – incredibly letting kids pull characters out of the digital world into the physical world. The

With Skylanders Trap Team, Portal Masters seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pulling them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Players can then send villains back into the game where they play as them to fight for good. The game will include the Traptanium PortalTM, a new ring of magical energy that enables kids to not only bring their Skylanders to life, but also magically capture villains using the new Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, kids will be able to place a Trap into the new portal to capture them. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.

This exciting new play pattern also gives players the option to switch between playing as a Skylander hero or a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay. In addition, fans can even take their Traps and their Skylanders characters to their friends’ houses for fun, co-operative adventures across all console game systems.

“When we created Skylanders, we invented a new category of play and, in the process, disrupted two industries – videogames and toys. With each new Skylanders game, our commitment to continuous, disruptive innovation has led to surprising and delightful new ways for kids to play with toys and games,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “With Skylanders Trap Team, we’re no longer just letting kids bring their toys to life inside the game anymore. This time, we’re letting them pull their toys out of the game as well. We are confident this installment of Skylanders will once again redefine what’s possible at the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds.”

Rise makes her idol comeback in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

P4A2 04 23 14 001 600x361 Rise makes her idol comeback in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Following up on our previous coverage of Persona 4 Arena support character Rise Kujikawa joining the fray as a proper fighter in the upcoming sequel Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the latest issue of Famitsu provides a handful of new details on what to expect in terms of story beats and overall fighting style.

Rise’s story begins with her getting to work on making her comeback as an idol by attending lessons. When the red fog shows up Inaba one night, though, people start disappearing and Rise finds herself separated from her friends. Faced with recent danger, Rise awakens to a newfound resolve, and with her Persona Himiko in turn gaining a battle-ready form in the process. Her unique cheeky fighter title is written to literally be “Kanzen Hentai Super Idol.” Although it’s difficult to translate well because of its multifaceted nature that plays upon both her Shadow’s tendencies as well as her general growth as a character, it can humorously be translated literally to mean both “The Completely Metamorphosed Idol” and “The Completely Perverted Idol.”

In terms of combat, Rise utilizes a microphone as her weapon of choice, with her battle style described as “restrictive musical notes.” As such, her special attacks include things such as explosive musical notes, as well as an array of projectiles. In line with her previous support role, she can still analyze her opponents, which changes up her attacks in some manner and enables players to craft their own unique fighting styles when playing as her. Additionally, like every other character in the game, Rise also has her own one-hit KO move called “True Story,” in reference to the song she sings in Persona 4 The Animation and Persona 4 Golden, in which she alluringly sings to her opponent to take them out once and for all.

As with most of the cast, Rise also has a Shadow form that players can choose to play. It once again takes shape as her idol self, Risette, although the reasoning behind its reappearance has yet to be illuminated. Shadow Rise has unique lines and actions that she can perform during the game, such as bringing up the title card used to herald Rise’s dungeon in the original Persona 4 as a fighter introduction before combat commences.

The Famitsu article also shares brief details on how story mode will work this time around. Rather than have paths dedicated to every character that appears in the game, the storyline will be split into two branches, “Episode P3″ and “Episode P4,” depicting plot developments from the perspectives of each game’s respective cast members.
