Hasbro And DeNA Team To Bring Transformers Games To Mobile Devices Worldwide
Posted by News Fetcher on July 19 '12 at 11:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
From Glu Mobile's Transformers: The Game to EA Mobile's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, there had been many Transformers mobile games under many genres including Platform, Turn-Based and even Social. There are even some unreleased games as well.

However, with the advancements of iOS and Android, mobile games are now more popular than ever. This may have been a reason for the new initiative between Hasbro and mobile game developer; DeNA.

"DeNA Co., Ltd. and Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS) have entered into an exclusive three-year agreement to develop and publish mobile games based on the TRANSFORMERS™ franchise. The first TRANSFORMERS game from DeNA will be released on the Mobage™ social gaming platform for iOS and Android mobile devices worldwide, with the exception of Japan, later this year."

We have received a Press Release announcing this new partnership and you can read it after the jump.

TFW2005 Fall of Cybertron Hands On and Impressions
Posted by News Fetcher on July 18 '12 at 06:15 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
The 2005 crew is back from SDCC and has a second to breathe after covering all the news and pictures for TFW2005, HissTank, Toyark, Thundercats.ws and Tokunation last week.

While out in San Diego, we were able to take a tour of High Moon Studios (see pictures here). During that tour with all the pretty pictures - they also told us things and let us see gameplay and intro sequences - go figure. We were also at the hands-on event Wednesday night, where we were able to play a bit of Campaign, Multiplayer, and Escalation.

Check out our round up of info and impressions, along with a slew of official in-game images, inside!

Orlando Parkhopper just acquired a bit of poster art that indicates what Universal Orlando’s next big attraction might be and when it may arrive.
