Voice actor Neil Kaplan, who may be best known as the voice of Optimus Prime in the Robots In Disguise Transformers cartoon, is set to return to the Transformers Universe.

The actor will make his voice be heard in the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game, giving voice to the characters Long Haul and Protectobot. Kaplan made the following announcement on his facebook page.

"I am THRILLED to announce my return to the "Transformers Universe". This summer you can find my work on "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". This brilliant video game is from the geniuses at Activision. I play both sides of the fence as Decepticon - Long Haul and Autobot - Protectobot. So... I can help you save or destroy the Earth. Just try to let me know ahead of time... nothing worse then tearing down what was meant to be saved.


Your Buddy,
Neil Kaplan

Seibertron.com's Dragonslayer has reported that Yahoo! Movies have put up a new trailer for the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen game.

The game trailer is effectively split in two, with the first half dedicated to encouraging the player to "unite, protect, and defend" with a heavy focus on the Autobots returning from the first film.
The trailer then proceeds to highlight the Decepticon traits of "enslave, punish, and destroy". returning Decepticons Blackout and Starscream are the main Decepticons highlighted in the trailer, but many new Decepticons are also briefly glanced, including Devastator.

In game transformations, battle and action sequences are all shown, for both Autobot and Decepticons alike, and there is even a sound grab in between the Autobot and Decepticon trailers that could be an indicator of what is to come for a new character in the sequel.

While it is not stated which console version the game trailer is for, going off the Game Fact Sheets and gameplay footage, it would be safe to assume that this trailer relates to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Kombo.com- Not many details on this yet, but it looks like there may be a new game for X-Box owners to purchase online that is related to the Transformers brand.

This game is called 'Transformers: Origins' and looks as though it may become available for the X-Box Live Arcade in the near future.

This is at this point a rumor, backed up by a screenshot, and a believable source. You can view the listing and information for yourself here.

MTV.com- According to sources at MTV.com, the structure and marketing for the ROTF game includes a very large DLC (downloadable content) plan. What does that mean for us?

It could mean many new downloadable character skins for G1, or other era characters that can be used in the ROTF movie adaptation.

"An Activision representative told me that the company has a “healthy DLC [downloadable content] plan which will incorporate more characters.” This is part of Activision’s intent to offer the largest Transformer character ever seen in a game based on the franchise. I didn’t ask, but it is likely that many of these new characters would be offered as paid DLC rather than as free. That’s been the business model employed successfully by Activision and other publishers for new content in “Guitar Hero,” “Rock Band,” “Halo” and more.
The Activision rep wouldn’t tell me which characters from which era of the toy line’s history would be available — nor, I realize now, did I clarify if the DLC was for the PS3/360 version only or also for the Wii, PC and portable versions – but that’s where the guessing can come in."


So not a lot is known about what exactly the DLC will be for this game, but it sounds like it may be impressive. But it also sounds like we may be needing to pry open our wallets to be able to play as some of our favorite characters.
