Skylanders Trap Team launching on Android alongside console version

Activision has announced that the next version of their hugely popular Skylanders game will be launching on Android, iPad, and consoles together on October 4. Progress made on the tablet version will carry over to the console version as well, if you're playing on multiple platforms. There will be a Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter pack available that includes a stand for your Android tablet, Bluetooth controller, two characters, two traps, and a display stand, though there's no word on how much that will cost.

For those unfamiliar, Skylanders is a game that involves players picking up real-world figures, scanning the base, and activating the digital character in-game. If you want to check out the tablet gameplay, take a look at the Skylanders Trap Team b-roll video here.

Anyone have kids that are into Skylanders? Have you played any of the previous Android games?
