Activision announce Transformers Prime, teaser trailer released
Activision have announced that they are developing a game based upon Hasbro Studios animated television show, Transformers Prime.
Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Ratchet, Bulkhead and more are playable, as you join the Autobots as they set out to defeat Megatron and his secret new weapon. You’ll explore unique vistas based across Earth, engage in brawler-style combat and race through driving sequences.
Players will build friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf – the human characters from the show – as the Autobots set out to protect mankind and rid the world of the Decepticon threat.
Now Production (NowPro) will oversee development of the Wii and Nintendo 3DS versions, whilst Altron Corporation are tasked with the Nintendo DS version.
“Hasbro Studios has done a phenomenal job with the Transformers Prime television show”, commented David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. “We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humor and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for Transformers fans of all ages to enjoy”.
Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro, adds “Hasbro is thrilled to be working with Activision again on an exciting new Transformers video game. 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”.
Transformers Prime is set to release exclusively for Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS later this year.
