Nintendo Minute Plays Skylanders Trap Team With The Game’s Executive Producer

The latest Nintendo Minute takes a look at the Wii U version of Skylanders Trap Team. Series hosts Kit and Krysta sit down with Skylanders executive producer Jeff Poffenbarger and play through the beginning of the game and showcase some of its new characters. Skylanders Trap Team is the fourth installment in Activision’s immensely popular Skylanders series. It is available on a number of platforms, including Wii U, Wii and Nintendo 3DS.

    1. No! Kit and especially Krysta are a pair of clueless muppets and are so fake. I suppose Skylanders is her new favourite franchise of all time this week. Skylanders is muck and it’s such a money grab. Nintendo should be discouraging not encouraging this rip-off but unfortunately Nintendo have joined the club now with Amiibo launching shortly. These Nintendo Minutes aren’t enjoyable. What they are is at least 10 minute long commercials for recently released or soon to be released games.

      1. Agreed, I recently bought Skylanders Swap Force and it was the game that thinned my wallet the most this year. It wasn’t much of a solid RPG too. No trailer or demo can make me ever try a new iteration again, let alone Nintendo Minute


  2. Meh, not a big fan of Nintendo Minute myself. They just don’t come off as “genuine” to me. I would rather have the full and proper monthly Nintendo Direct to return

    1. Skylanders is only costly if you want to buy every figure for every game. The game doesn’t require you to purchase any more than the ones in the starter pack if you wish to beat the game, they release such a wide variety of figures for the avid collectors out there, and also for people who would like to purchase some to have a wide variety of characters to choose from. Each character can be levelled up through gameplay, gradually getting stronger, with upgrades available for purchase in game that you can buy with the money you earn as you level up and explore. And now with the inclusion of a ridiculous number of villains, theres more on top of that to do. You can go on villain specific quests in the game to complete tasks, allowing your villain to become an evolved villain, with an upgraded color scheme and stronger abilities. Each character has a wide variety of idle animations and quite a few voice clips that they say throughout playing, not just in cutscenes.

      Personally I find that Amiibo is bland. All that we’ve seen so far is that they’re essentially glorified CPUs with an upgraded AI that can make them harder than your average level 9 CPU, so it’s almost like you have another player playing with you when you play with an Amiibo…..but that’s kinda pointless when you have a bunch of friends to play smash with……Sure I guess you could bet on who’s Amiibo will win or something along those lines….but….there really isn’t too much to them….and they’re figures of many characters we already have figures for, many of which have much higher quality figures out there already, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Link, Zelda, Toon Link, Mario, Luigi, Sonic, Pacman and Megaman are all good examples of this…..but I guess we’ll have to wait to see the full extent at which Amiibo works it magic, and how it’ll work with games like Hyrule Warriors, Mariokart and TTT.

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            Which will work on several games aswell concerning these characters…

            Expect to see it in Mario Party 10 as an example…

              1. To save your experiences with this character, your records, your equipment, your inventory… whatever you need and bring it to your friend’s house to play there with your character and all your stuff. The figure is nothing more like a memory card to store your game info that you use on the other game to keep on going. It is kinda like we did back in the days with D&D, if this says something to you.

    2. What is costly about it? You need only 1 figure to play the damn game until the end. There is no NEED to buy ALL of them. No one forces you to do so. Honestly, don’t complain if there is nothing to complain or you are not forced to do something you don’t want to.

      1. It’s called having the FULL EXPERIENCE. You’re telling me you would enjoy the game with a single figure? Damn that’s just sad
