"At EGX this week there was one booth on the Nintendo stand with a constant crowd of kids. Unlike the other games on offer though, young players at the expo each contributed to a team effort to beat Skylanders Trap Team — a kind of communal “EGX Plays”.
A lot of the excitement was around this being the first full public outing of the new Skylanders game. Choosing the Wii U for this event perhaps marks the importance of the platform to Activision. In fact one of the big distinguishers between Skylanders and its big rival Disney Infinity is the former’s ongoing support for the original Wii."
