GameStop will also allow more items to be traded into their stores.

Activision Blizzard is broadening it's hold on the online gaming world by moving products over to a new console system.

For years Blizzard has put it's games on Sony Playstation and Xbox games with titles such as "Call of Duty" series.  They've decided to expand on that notion by incorporating Nintendo into their lineup as well.

Activision Publishing a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, announced that it will launch Skylanders Trap Team for Nintendo 3DS on Oct 5, 2014 in North America, Oct 2 in Australia and Oct 10 in Europe.

"Skylanders Trap Team is an action and adventure-packed video game, developed by Toys for Bob. It is the fourth installment of the Skylanders video game franchise, one of the successful intellectual property of Activision."

"Two new characters will be available to gamers only if they avail Skylanders Trap Team on Nintendo 3DS. Further, the Nintendo 3DS version of Skylanders Trap Team will also enable cross platform play by enabling the users to play with all the toys from Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders SWAP Force."

"We believe that access to new characters as well as new features will help in attracting large number of Nintendo users particularly in Japan and Asian countries. We believe that this will drive top line growth going forward."

GameStop has also decided to start allowing customers to trade in expanded games such as Skylanders and Disney Infinity Toys, to open up the market for more trade in value for consumers.

Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures sell for around $7-$25. GameStop did not mention a price that it will pay for individual figures, but this is likely to vary depending on the figure you're looking to trade in.
