The battle to protect mankind from the evil Decepticons rages on in the Transformers Prime videogame. Created for kids and based on the award winning animated television show produced by Hasbro Studios, Transformers Prime allows fans to take on the roles of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Autobot Ratchet and Bulkhead as they fight through heroic battles against the Decepticons all around the world. Transformers Prime is available now exclusively at Toys “R” Us for Nintendo’s Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, and will be a day-one launch title for Nintendo’s new Wii U system.
Continuing the epic saga, the videogame centres around an original story set directly within the Transformers Prime universe, allowing gamers not only to play as their favourite Autobot characters, but also cultivate close 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. For the Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U versions of the videogame, players can also compete with or against their friends in adrenaline-pumping multiplayer modes that allow fans to choose from eleven different Transformers characters from both factions.
“The Transformers Prime television show is a fantastic series and we’re excited to bring this new adventure to Nintendo and Transformers fans alike,” said Kurt Niederloh, Vice President, Activision Publishing. “We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Hasbro and the TV show producers to bring this all-new storyline to life with the spirit and trademark gameplay Nintendo gamers have come to know and love.”
Transformers Prime is developed by Now Production (NowPro) for Nintendo’s Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, and by Altron Corporation for Nintendo DS. Available now for Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS, Transformers Prime will be available alongside the Wii U console on 30th November 2012, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Wii U launch line-up.
