While cross-buy promotions are only just starting for Nintendo, Skylanders may be leading the way in the field – just not in the conventional sense.
According to a post by @SkylandersGame on Twitter, buying Skylanders: Trap Team on the Nintendo Wii this year will allow you to have a free copy of the same game on Wii U digitally. This allows those who buy Trap Team on Wii to take not only the hardware, but the graphically upgraded version of the game into the next generation of Nintendo. With rumors surfacing that Skylanders won’t release the title after Trap Team on the original Wii, this is a smart move on the part of Activision.

Releasing on October 10th, 2014, Skylanders: Trap Team will release on the Wii, Wii U, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo 3DS. What a mighty list of systems.
