Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has posted information that shows there is a new Transformers Mystery of Convoy game coming soon. It will be developed for iOS and Android devices, and will star the Takara Tomy Q Transformers Optimus Prime as the main character. The original Mystery Of Convoy was released in Japan in 1986 on the Famicom gaming system and starred Ultra Magnus.

A Youtube video has provided some game play footage, as well as an advert for the Q Transformers figures. The video is provided by fellow TF fan, Walruslaw. The game has been redesigned to make the controls more accessible via touch control. The original game was well known for it's rather high level of difficulty and it seems the upcoming game has been tweaked to allow for a bit more ease in playing the game. The original game's music and the Decepticon symbol boss fight (yes, you read that right!) have been incorporated into the remake.

You can read more about the original game over at Wikipedia, by clicking here.

The images of the original and remake games, plus the video have been mirrored below:

I've never played it myself, but that's what I've always heard about it as well.

It would have been nice if they would have re-vamped the graphics to bring it more up to date just a tad (like SNES level, nothing super spectacular). Not that it really matters since I own no mobile device capable of running this app.

I remember reading or seeing something on Japanese games and how the parents in Japan, and the society in general were worried about video games making kids stupid so the companies made the games very hard so the kids had to think really hard to win. That might have something to do with Role Playing games being very popular over there.

Anyone else think it's weird that Transformers Q is bundling in two G1 characters when the rest are movie characters? Sideswipe even has a movie version. Prowl could have easily been Barricade.

Why just this game? Why not the few other The Transformers games that everyone has forgotten about. It'll be nice for those 20 year old games to have some kind of modern release.

I wish you could play as Ultra Magnus or the hidden Rodimus Prime rather than a malformed movie prime

I'm more curious about the Q Transformers anime coming out of this line.

StrategyWiki has a really good guide about the original Famicom game. Runs through all the stages and power ups: http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Transforme ... oy_no_Nazo

Makes me wonder why they chose to remake this game.

I downloaded this game on Google Play this evening.

You know, I didn't think it was possible, but it may actually be MORE difficult than the Famicom original. There is an incredibly steep learning curve right from the very beginning. The first two games I played, I wound up dying in under two seconds. My highest score thus far is NINE seconds.

It's not a bad game, by any means. Just shockingly difficult in comparison to other mobile games like Cookie Run.

Funny note. I originally wanted to snag this for my iPhone, but it wasn't showing up in the App Store. A statement from TakaraTomy said that they'd submitted the game to Apple, but it was rejected because Apple thought the game was a fake. TakaraTomy was trying to get everything sorted out and hoped that it would be available soon.
