Prepare for devastation!
It seems we have a new Transformers video game to look forward to. Gaming site Pure Xbox
has leaked some images and information of what is coming to us next from Activision.
Transformers Devastation, as it is known, is a cel-shaded brawler with a very slick artstyle recalling the look of the original Generation 1 cartoon. From the images we can see the Autobots in the game include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Sideswipe, with Optimus and Bumblebee looking like they may be playable characters. Decepticons shown include Megatron and Devastator, the latter of whom absolutely towers over Optimus. Generic Decepticons armed with swords are also shown in droves, and they seem to resemble the Generation 1 Decepticon Runamuck. There is evidence of combat involving both guns and also close-range melee weapons, such as a pair of swords on Sideswipe and Optimus using his energy axe.
Further details are unknown, but Pure Xbox reports this game is heading to Xbox 360 for certain. We'd imagine that Activision will not ignore the current generation, or the Playstation, so we'd imagine that Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 versions must also be on the cards.
Allegedly, this game will be officially unveiled at E3, so we hope to see more then. For now, check out the images which we have mirrored here for your viewing pleasure.
Is this finally the Generation 1 cartoon inspired game we've all been dreaming of?Read Replies (0)

In an exclusive interview
with Collider's staff writer Christina Radish, Mark Wahlberg mentioned that he thinks Michael Bay will be back to direct the 5th installment of Transformers film when asked about Bay's return to the franchise. This despite of Bay's earlier
statement saying he will leave the directing chair for someone else to fill.
Together with the recent recruitment of a writers team, what would this spell for the future of the Transformers Cinematic Universe? Sound off your thoughts with us on the forums!Read Replies (0)

Great news for our readers in Australia! It looks like MP-12 Lambor will be getting released there. GoktimusPrime of Ozformers
shared the news there. He assisted in the translation for the release. Right now, they don't have any further info on price or the production run numbers.
A post by Griffin-of-Oz shares this info:From what I can tell, this would be an Asia/Hong Kong reissue of the Japanese Sideswipe... I can't see any sign of it being a Japanese reissue that has filtered into the Hasbro Asia market (and then through to us in Australia).
Hasbro Asia have been known to have their own "exclusive" reissues of Japanese Transformers, but it can confuse people who might look for this "Japanese" Transformers toy online to compare prices and then can't find it listed at Japanese online stores.
It is listed as being a September release in Asia, so should show up in Australia at around October.Read Replies (0)
