6. There Won’t Be Any New Zones for Past Skylanders Characters
For past characters in the series, there won’t be any specific elemental zones for them all. This means that the series’ Giants and Swap Force characters can only be used to fight and venture around Skylands, but they won’t be able to venture into the secret Trap Master zones.
7. The 3DS Edition is Being Developed by Two Development Teams
Toys for Bob are responsible for the development of the game’s console versions and the creation of the newest collectable figures. As for the 3DS edition of the game, Toys for Bob and Beenox will both handle the development duties.
8. All of the Skylanders Figures Released Thus Far Will Be Compatible
Each and every Skylanders toy that has been released before Trap Force will be compatible with the game’s new Traptanium Portal. However, the Trap Masters won’t work with past portals from the last three games in the series.
9. The Level Cap Will Remain the Same
The overall level cap for all playable characters will remain at Level 20.
