Activision today announced what sounds like a very tasty new Transformers game, Transformers Prime, based on the hit animated television show currently airing on Cartoon Network in the UK. A Nintendo exclusive, the game lets fans play as their favourite Autobot characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil Megatron and his new secret weapon. Players get to play as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Autobot Ratchet, Bulkhead and more as they explore the game world and take on the enemy in brawler-style combat and diverse driving sequences. Along the way, you also get to cultivate friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf, the human characters from the show, as Team Prime sets out to protect mankind and eliminate the Decepticons once and for all.
Transformers Prime is set to be released later this year exclusively for Nintendo’s Wii, 3DS and DS.“Hasbro Studios has done a phenomenal job with the TRANSFORMERS PRIME television show,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. “We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humour and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages to enjoy.”
“Hasbro is thrilled to be working with Activision again on an exciting new TRANSFORMERS video game,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro. “The TRANSFORMERS PRIME animated series has resonated strongly with kids and fans and we’re looking forward to delivering this new way to experience the adventure.”
