We've received a number of notifications from Seibertron.com members about an upcoming collaboration between Nintendo and Hasbro for a Transformers-themed Splatfest - part of the Splatoon game for Wii U consoles. Find out more in the official press release copied below, and choose your side if you take part in the event!

Nintendo and Hasbro Join Forces to Let TRANSFORMERS Fans Take Sides in Splatoon

Are you team Autobot or team Decepticon? Nintendo and Hasbro are joining forces to help you defend your robot allegiances in the Splatoon game for the Wii U console.


Splatoon features themed events called Splatfests that let players pick a preference, such as Autobots or Decepticons, and then compete against the opposing side in online battles. A Splatfest celebration lasts for 24 hours, during which players head into battle and try to rack up Turf War wins for their side. While the Splatfest is ongoing, in-game characters get to wear a special T-shirt that shows which Transformers team has their allegiance. The ink that each team shoots will also be customized to match the color scheme of the chosen side.

Once a Splatfest ends, the side with the most points will be awarded the most Super Sea Snails, items that will allow them to upgrade their gear in the game. The Transformers-themed Splatfest event is scheduled to run starting at 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 28 through 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 29 and is open to all Wii U owners who have Splatoon and an Internet connection.

Splatoon, which is exclusive to Wii U, represents Nintendo’s take on the action-shooter genre. Characters called Inklings can transform into squids as they attempt to cover the play area with their team’s colorful ink and splat opponents. Using an array of inventive weapons, players cover the playing surface with as much of their team’s colorful ink as possible before time runs out. On Aug. 5, a free software update in Splatoon brought a large amount of new content to the game, including two new matchmaking modes, new weapon types, an increase to the game’s level cap and more than 40 pieces of new gear.

For more information about Splatoon, visit http://splatoon.nintendo.com or on Tumblr at http://splatoonus.tumblr.com/.

TOP-RATED ANIMATED SERIES TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE
PRODUCED BY HASBRO STUDIOS


Special Collectible DVD Arrives in Stores Nationwide on October 20, 2015
From Shout! Factory Kids

The lure of TRANSFORMRES saga begins a new chapter as BUMBLEBEE and a team of AUTOBOT action heroes embark on a new mission to protect and save Earth from a new faction of DECEPTICONS. Hasbro Studios’ new top-rated animated series TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, which airs on Cartoon Network, is the latest installment of TRANSFORMERS franchise and builds on the lore of both the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS.

Pre-order now at:

The new mission begins as BUMBLEBEE must step up to be leader in the years after we left the AUTOBOTS in TRANSFORMERS PRIME. Summoned by OPTIMUS PRIME to save Earth from a new DECEPTICON threat, BUMBLEBEE puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of AUTOBOTS action heroes. BUMBLEBEE must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally team that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel SIDESWIPE, elite guard cadet STRONGARM, bombastic dinobot GRIMLOCK and overly-excited mini-con FIXIT must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in each adventure-filled episode.

TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE features the voice talent of Will Friedle (Boy Meets World), Darren Criss (Glee), Constance Zimmer (Entourage), Khary Payton (Teen Titans Go!), Mitchell Whitfield (TMNT) and Peter Cullen who voices OPTIMUS PRIME when he makes cameo appearances in this series.

Five action-packed TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE adventures include:
  • Pilot, Part 1
  • Pilot, Part 2
  • Trust Exercises
  • More Than Meets The Eye
  • W.W.O.D.

Bonus Feature:
A Look Behind-The-Scenes

Total Running Time: Approx. 110 minutes

The TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE series is currently airing on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on Teletoon in Canada.

San Diego, CA (June 4, 2015) – IDW Publishing, a pioneer in digital comics, launched its next-generation of comic apps for Apple iOS today, June 4th.

The complete line of IDW apps includes the premier IDW Comics app, which features the full IDW digital library, as well as the individual apps for some of IDW’s premier brands – TRANSFORMERS Comics, Star Trek Comics, and TMNT Comics.

To celebrate this launch, IDW is offering users that create a NEW app account 15 FREE premium collected editions, which totals over 80 issues, plus dozens of motion books. But hurry, this offer is good through July 12th!

“The new partnership with Madefire allows us to expand to more and more devices,” said Jeff Webber, IDW’s VP of Digital Publishing & Business Development. “We are excited to be launching these apps now for Apple iOS, with Android and Windows 8 apps following very soon. And we aren’t stopping there! Later this year, IDW comics will be coming to TV screens and console game devices too!”

“We're very proud to partner with IDW,” said Ben Wolstenholme, Madefire’s CEO & Co-founder. “Their world-class content is now matched with a world-class digital experience for readers. Using our Motion Book Publisher platform, IDW has control of their apps, storefront, and digital comic formats from PDF to fully immersive Motion Books. IDW is taking digital comics to the next level, and this is just the start!”
