Transformers News: New Transformers: Battle Tactics Mobile Game

DeNA and Hasbro Reveal New Mobile Game,
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS

SAN FRANCISCO –December 10, 2014– DeNA and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today announced TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game based on the TRANSFORMERS universe, is currently in development for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android devices. In TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, players will collect iconic TRANSFORMERS characters, assembling teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS characters, including fan favorites found within the pages of the IDW Combiner Wars series, to battle friends and fans from around the globe. Players and TRANSFORMERS fans can pre-register to receive updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at launch at the website: http://www.transformersbattletactics.com.



TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TATICS will be available as a free download and will feature more than 75 classic TRANSFORMERS characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, and BUMBLEBEE. Battles are swift and require strategic decision-making to propel players to victory. Each TRANSFORMERS character has unique stats and abilities, which shift as players convert them from robot to their alternate mode. The unique graphic style is inspired by the TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars characters and comic book series. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS includes an expansive single-player campaign, story-driven in-game events and real-time player-vs-player (PvP) matches for players around the world to engage in strategic battles and rise to the top of the leaderboards.

"TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS blends fast action and strategic gameplay with a style TRANSFORMERS fans of all generations will appreciate,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “From collecting new TRANSFORMERS to creating mash-up teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to battling against friends and fans around the world, players will have an epic amount of content to enjoy once the game ‘Rolls Out’ in 2015.”

TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the third title in an exclusive three-year agreement between DeNA and Hasbro to develop and publish mobile games based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise. Extending beyond the card-based battling in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS and the runner action of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION games – The Official Mobile Game, TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS marks the first mobile turn-based strategy game set in the beloved TRANSFORMERS universe.

"The strategic combat and visual style of TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is a really fresh, fun and exciting take on the TRANSFORMERS brand,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.

TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices in 2015. To pre-register for updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at launch visit http://www.transformersbattletactics.com

Fresh and energized before an inevitable turkey-coma, the Twincast / Podcast is back to present our latest episode. Join host Scotty P as he sits down with the mysterious Punch, as well as our second potential new friend, SW's Silverhammer.

Episode #106 "McCarthyism" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start out by taking a look at the potentially not as easy to get MP Exhaust and his battle against the forces of Philip Morris and the US Government. Will the Decepticons succeed in driving the cast to chain smoke for the rest of the episode? Or will the Truth campaign prevail? Neither of these things are addressed as we pick apart this tale of when the worlds of legal agreements and import Japanese Masterpiece Transformers collide.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Smoooooooke.


We then take a trip back into the Movieverse and take a look at the awfully tempting paint job of Takara Tomy's AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Is this a case of taking advantage of lower costs, or a premium piece that the cast will be avoiding?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
You will buy me, or I will kill you.


Generations takes center stage next when we have a chat about the initial Combiner Wars wave now that there are official images from Hasbro of these upcoming toys. Find out who's happy, who's soured, and who just takes things as they are.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Crotch elbows got nothin' on chest shoulders.


In our special topic of sorts for the episode, we take a look at some older toys that have worked their way back into our hearts over the years. What toys have you re-discovered a love for lately? Maybe it's something you didn't appreciate before, or maybe something completely ignored years and years ago. Either way, let us know what kind of Transformers stuff you've either re-discovered or newly discovered recently by replying to this post. It doesn't have to be all about toys either!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Sailing back into your heart, and the world of the living.


We then move on to comics talk (starts at 55:21, skip to 1:22:56 or so to avoid spoilers), first by exploring the return of Shane McCarthy to the Transformers world in this month's Drift: Empire of Stone #1. Does Drift return to bring the fandom its favorite thing? We don't think so, plus, yours truly gets all hypocritical with the artwork given how Regeneration One went, so tune in for that fun and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Drift's a dandy guy, doing dandy things, in space.


Then we move on to the latest chapter in the complex space opera landscape of More Than Meets the Eye #35. Has the cast had enough of this time travel business? And what's Brainstorm been up to? Full on spoiler warning continues for this section, so be warned!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Get the getaway car, Counterpunch, he's figured out the show!


On a somber and/or cynical note, we chat about the layoffs at Jagex, the company responsible for the Transformers Universe MMO game that never quite got into the air. Listen in to our compelling discussion as no one is surprised by this turn of events.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
A visual representation of hopes for this project.


We then finish off with some Bragging Rights. Prepare to be dazzled by our tens of collective additions!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Lots of Maketoys in this one.


That wraps things up for another episode! We sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Netflix Removing Transformers from its Service?

Fellow Seibertron user TransBat saw something strange while looking at his netflix Instant Queue and wanted to give a heads up to those fans who may have wanted to watch their Transformers related media on Netflix while they could.

I noticed this morning when I logged into Netflix and examined my Instant Queue, the Transformers G1, Transformers: Rescue Bots, Transformers Prime/Beast Hunters (although not the Predacons Rising movie), and other shows like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and JEM are scheduled to leave/expire on January 1, 2015.

I realize this could just be a tentative expiration date and a new contract could be negotiated with Hasbro/Netflix before the date arrives, but thought I'd provide a heads up.



TransBat is probably right in his deduction that this is just a tentative expiration date and that the rights to the show will be renewed. But you never know, and we wouldn't want fans to miss out on these shows if ever they truly are to be removed come January.

Per CNBC analyst Tom DiChristopher Disney could be a major obstacle standing in the way of Hasbro's purchase of DreamWorks Animation. In other words Disney must approve this deal! Hasbro has a very lucrative contract with Walt Disney to produce toys based on their Star Wars and Marvel Comics properties. Senior Analyst Steph Wissink at Piper Jaffray estimates that 25 to 30 percent of Hasbro's business is tied up with Disney. Hasbro owning Disney's biggest rival animation studio could present a huge problem.

After DreamWorks' recent box-office disappointments, including "Turbo" and "Rise of the Guardians." CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, also held talks with another potential buyer, Japanese telecommunications giant SoftBank.

According to USAtoday, Hasbro is in talks to buy DreamWorks, the Studio behind animated movie franchises as Shrek and Madagascar. While NY Times is citing anonymous sources that talks are in "advance stages" and the deal would include a combination of stocks and cash. This deal with Hasbro would forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. With Hasbro already owning 40% of Discovery Family, they are making it clear that they want to be the leader of family entertainment, using this media to promote their games and toys including Transformers.



According to Deadline.com, "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. The other talks are with Hearst to turn DWA's AwesomenessTV into a joint venture."

DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg would become chairman of the combined operation, the website says.
