DeNA is continuing its month long September to Remember campaign for its entertaining mobile card battle game TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS that showcases a series of weekly episodes and new content added to the game. Today features the release of the in-game episode called S.O.S. Dinobots! This exciting episode runs through Tuesday, September 17, 2013.
The S.O.S. Dinobots! Storyline
This week on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS witness the primal power of the Dinobots versus the agile aerial Seekers.
In the aftermath of the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime, the Autobots stand with their backs against the wall. With the power vacuum left behind by the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime and with their hands full trying to protect the innocent humans, the Autobots are struggling to save themselves from disaster.
Without Optimus Prime's leadership and strength in the battle's ensuing chaos, Grimlock believes it's time for him to step up. As he charges into the battle, the Decepticons feel a chill of fear when they hear echoing over the battlefield: "Me Grimlock king!"
The Dinobots’ limited intelligence but incredible strength make for an uncomfortable combination. Optimus Prime considered shutting down the unpredictable Dinobots in the past before they could do harm to themselves or anyone else, but a sudden and devastating Decepticon attack forced him to reconsider. In the following battle the Dinobots prove that they are of immense value for the Autobots. Now the Autobots must call upon the might of the Dinobots once more as only they can change the tide of their desperate battle.
The Decepticons fear the Dinobots for good reasons. Even the powerful Devastator could not stand against the ferocity and sheer stubbornness of the Dinobots.
Will the unpredictable Dinobots save the Autobots? Can the Dinobot's tenacity bring down the Decepticons?
Find out in this week's episode S.O.S. Dinobots!

JB: More importantly, are you a Transformers fan, at all?
JH: Giant, battling transforming alien robots… what’s not to like? Most recently, I watched the original animated movie again and caught ‘Robots in Disguise’ along with season one of ‘Prime’. Very enjoyable and interesting to see how things have evolved over the years in the world of Transformers.
JB: How would you describe the sound of Transformers Universe?
JH: Some of the music is not a million miles away from the stylistic framework established for Transformers in general, but there’s also a move towards being a little harsher and grittier at times. Steve Lord, the Audio Director on Transformers Universe, wanted some tracks to have a grinding, almost mechanistic and robotic feel to them. But there’s quite a bit of orchestral music in there, too. We recorded a 72-piece orchestra for some of the early music going into the game, and there’ll be more orchestral production in the near future as composing and recording for Transformers Universe is an ongoing process. One of the interesting and refreshing things about this game is how episodic it is with new content getting planned for it all the time.
JB: If you had to pick one track to represent the soundtrack, which would it be and why?
JH: It’s difficult to single out any one track but I’d say that collectively the various themes will define the sound and set the tone for the game. I particularly like the Autobot Theme, which tries to capture an air of nobility and heroism, coupled with awesome firepower!
