If you and your friends like the Skylanders games, then Activision has a deal that may interest you. If you buy the Wii version of the upcoming Skylanders Trap Team, you will get a download code for the Wii U version for free.
The news was revealed Wednesday via the official Skylanders Twitter account:
This is certainly an interesting move, and it makes sense. The figurines are a big money-maker, so if Activision can give the game away, they increase the buying potential of the figurines.
Skylanders Trap Team releases on October 5th for Wii, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.
In unrelated news, if any of you Wii owners buy the new Skylanders game, I can make sure the Wii U version finds a loving home.
This is an unexpected, but brilliant move by Activision. More games = more toys = more money. Plus, consumers with a Wii and Wii U can either give the extra game to a friend or split the cost between them. Now if only the toys weren’t $10 each…
