When we reported on the new DeNA mobile game Transformers: Battle Tactics, we were given some new character art, featuring tiny versions of Generations Combiner Wars robots - with a new reveal brought by fellow Seibertron.com member Down_Shift, does this mean that the following Cyclonus and Viper characters are hinting at some new, or rather, remolded redecoes, Decepticon combiners?
The speculation so far sees Viper as a straightforward Legend Class Powerglide repaint in blue and red, but Cyclonus may very well be a heavy retool of Voyager Silverbolt with a dashing purple deco. Check out the images below, and head to this thread to discuss the rumour. Comment below to have your say on the game!
Dan Khanna here! It’s been an honor to be featured in my own TRANSFORMERS Legends Signature Series event! I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to get a chance to draw some of my personal favorite all-time classic characters. I hope you get a kick out of my character selection, and enjoy the artwork I drew up for this event. So welcome aboard, and have fun playing this new event!
Thanks to the DLE YouTube channel, you can now view the fourth (and third) episodes in the Mystery of Convoy Returns, this time featuring some more on videogames, specifically the NES Mystery of Convoy game and its upcoming remake, and what appears to be a deleted scene of sorts, loosely translated as paint the salt in the wound. Make of them what you will below!
Today, DeNA and Hasbro revealed a variety of new character art for TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game coming soon to iOS and Android.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the first game that lets players command a team of both AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters, strategically utilizing powerful abilities to defeat their opponents. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will feature over 75 iconic characters including classic heroes like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee joining forces with baddies like Megatron and Starscream. The art style mixes retro 80’s appeal with an anime twist that will resonate with Transformers fans both young and old.
In addition, here are some character bios DeNA provided to us:
Bumblebee is always ready for anything. He has an arsenal of gadgets designed just for him, which he can use to meet the needs of any mission. No matter where the Decepticons hide - whether they flee to the deepest ocean, or disappear into the clouds - Bumblebee is ready to pursue and destroy them.
Wheeljack was onboard the Ark ship that initially crashed on Earth. Equal parts medic and inventor, most of the Autobots' scientific advances have come from Wheeljack's lab. Enterprising and outgoing, he's always one of the most popular Autobots. His best invention is a near-impenetrable faceplate, which has been handy when volatile prototype inventions have literally exploded in his face. In combat, his seismic batons ward off enemies.
Autobots | Aerialbots (Hunter)
The newest member of the Aerialbots and the only member that is not a jet plane. His assault helicopter mode gives the team a member with VTOL and hovering capabilities, but he cannot match his teammates' top speed. Being the "new guy" and the slowest flyer of the group makes him feel like he has something to prove. Carries four tracker missiles that process a "spark lock" to their targets. With fellow Aerialbots forms "Superion."
There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The war he launched eventually drained his home planet of life. Not even the death of a world could sate his hunger for conquest.
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.
Thundercracker lives on fear. Special materials in his jet frame allow him to unleash controlled sonic detonations that can be heard 200 miles away. Streaking across the sky at Mach 6, he wants his enemies to hear him before they see him. He wants them to know he's coming, and cower in fear at their impending doom.
Decepticons | Stunticons (Soldier)
Nasty and underhanded - would rather be scrapped than lose. Prone to overheating, but possesses the greatest pure speed of any Stunticon. Adopting the alt-mode of an advanced concept Formula One race car gives him a sixth gear the Autobots cannot match, but leaves him with a slightly fragile vehicle mode. His fierce competitive streak and unmatched speed makes him the ideal "tip of the spear" for the Stunticon forces. With fellow Stunticons forms "Menasor."
The Transformers Legends Facebook page have posted details of their latest mobile device game episode - featuring the Dinobots, Insecticons, and the big purple himself, Shockwave. Check out details below.
TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS - “RESCUE THE KING” HAS BEGUN!
SLUG and SNARL traverse the Sea of Rust, searching for their leader, the mighty GRIMLOCK. As they are about to give up on their search and look elsewhere, the group is suddenly set upon by HARDSHELL and the INSECTICONS.
The Lightning Strike Coalition put up a valiant fight, destroying many of their foes in the process, but in the end are captured by the overwhelming DECEPTICON forces. Shortly thereafter, they are brought before SHOCKWAVE and an unconscious GRIMLOCK.
Gesturing to their leader, SHOCKWAVE reveals to SLUG and SNARL that it was his plan all along to lure the Lightning Strike Coalition to him, so he could alter them to create new superweapons. With that, he begins his experiments on GRIMLOCK, the sounds of machinery filling the room.
Will the AUTOBOTS emerge unscathed and victorious, or will they be twisted by the alterations? What nefarious plans does SHOCKWAVE have for GRIMLOCK and his team? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Rescue the King”!
Thanks to a new listing on Brazilian retailer Rihappy.co.br we get a look at the new Angry Birds Transformers two-pack of Jazz and Brawl Telepods, part of the new Deceptihogs Revenge line! The figures are retooled repaints of Soundwave (with a new head) and Bludgeon / Megatron - check them out below.
The update, which has already been available to Android users for a number of weeks, unlocks new areas of Piggy Island and also makes available new characters and new features including the option for Skywarp to destroy an event, as well as add some accessories to your Autobirds and Deceptihogs.
