The Skylanders Trap Team Wii version is set to launch soon and it will include a download code for the Wii U version. This effectively creates a cross-buy benefit for the toys-to-life game by Activision.
According to the Skylanders? official Twitter page, they pointed out the bonus on Wednesday. This means that those who buy the game for the Wii won?t need to buy a new set of the game (currently priced at $75) if they upgrade to the Wii U. Players who have both consoles may want to consider this even if the Wii U will be the primary gaming option.
The physical toys as well as the portal that they will be using are the same for both consoles. The only difference will be in the software.
Skylanders Trap Team is scheduled to launch on October 5 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One and the Nintendo 3DS. There will also be a Dark Edition collector?s pack which will allow players to play as the series? main villain, Portal Master Kaos. The pack will include the black and silver variant figurines of new Skylanders Food Fight and Wildfire. The Dark Edition will retail for a price of $99 for all platforms although the Wii listing does not mention anything about the Wii U download code.
The game description reads: ?Kaos has blown up the walls of the feared Cloudcracker Prison freeing the most notorious villains in Skylands. It’s up to you and the Skylanders to find and capture them.
