Earlier today Activision announced the sixth game in the Skylanders series, Skylanders Imaginators. It looks like Kaos has discovered the ancient power of Mind Magic and is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders. Eon is calling for Skylands’ greatest mystic warriors the Senseis to help stop Kaos and his minions. Using the power of your imagination you will be able to create your own Skylanders to battle with the Senseis to help save Skylands yet again.
For each of the past two Skylanders games, there has been a special Dark Edition version of the game containing Dark variants of the starter pack characters. Well this year, because there are three different normal versions of the game, there will be three SuperChargers Dark Editions of the game. Both the Wii U and the Wii will be getting their own dark edition because they each come with a different special Nintendo character.
It looks like Skylanders will be getting another Dark Edition Starter Pack with Skylanders Trap Team. This time though, it’s not going to be limited to just GameStop. You should be able to find this at your favorite retailer. The Dark Edition will again come with black and silver colored “Dark” versions of characters. Just like the regular starter pack, the Dark Edition will come with Food Fight and Snap Shot. However, these will be the “Dark” versions of the characters. The pack will also still include the Life Trap and the Water Trap, which do not have a dark affiliation from what I can tell. However, the Dark Edition will also include Dark Wildfire and the trap that everyone will want…The Ultimate Kaos trap. The Dark Edition will retail for $99.99 but because it’s not exclusive to GameStop, you can pick it up where ever you get the best deal.
