The Transformers return, as Platinum Games today (finally) confirmed and revealed more details about their upcoming game, Transformers: Devastation.
Kenji Saito from Platinum Games wrote quite the message to fans via the EU PlayStation Blog detailing all things Transformers. The game will have a strong focus on quite obviously, robots and vehicles.
“The key is action that combines these two concepts, allowing players to freely switch modes whenever needed, racing around the city in vehicle mode and pounding on the enemy in robot mode,” he said.
“How the player utilizes both modes within the combat system opens up an infinite number of possibilities. You can choose from Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, and of course, Grimlock.”
“One of our other big focuses for Transformers: Devastation is to deliver the kind of big-name face-offs between the leaders of the Autobots and Decepticons that make the series so gripping,” Saito continued.
“The game features electrifying comic book-inspired story which races back and forth across the cosmos between Earth and Cybertron, drawing in a huge cast of fan-favourite characters for a battle to decide the fate of both worlds.”
Saito also confirmed that the team are working with big name voice actors from the series, including Frank Welker, Dan Gilvezan, and Peter Cullen.
Transformers: Devastation is an over-the-top action brawler with some serious cel-shaded flair that will be making its way to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in Spring this year in Australia and Fall in the U.S.
