We've received a number of notifications from Seibertron.com members about an upcoming collaboration between Nintendo and Hasbro for a Transformers-themed Splatfest - part of the Splatoon game for Wii U consoles. Find out more in the official press release copied below, and choose your side if you take part in the event!

Nintendo and Hasbro Join Forces to Let TRANSFORMERS Fans Take Sides in Splatoon

Are you team Autobot or team Decepticon? Nintendo and Hasbro are joining forces to help you defend your robot allegiances in the Splatoon game for the Wii U console.


Splatoon features themed events called Splatfests that let players pick a preference, such as Autobots or Decepticons, and then compete against the opposing side in online battles. A Splatfest celebration lasts for 24 hours, during which players head into battle and try to rack up Turf War wins for their side. While the Splatfest is ongoing, in-game characters get to wear a special T-shirt that shows which Transformers team has their allegiance. The ink that each team shoots will also be customized to match the color scheme of the chosen side.

Once a Splatfest ends, the side with the most points will be awarded the most Super Sea Snails, items that will allow them to upgrade their gear in the game. The Transformers-themed Splatfest event is scheduled to run starting at 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 28 through 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 29 and is open to all Wii U owners who have Splatoon and an Internet connection.

Splatoon, which is exclusive to Wii U, represents Nintendo’s take on the action-shooter genre. Characters called Inklings can transform into squids as they attempt to cover the play area with their team’s colorful ink and splat opponents. Using an array of inventive weapons, players cover the playing surface with as much of their team’s colorful ink as possible before time runs out. On Aug. 5, a free software update in Splatoon brought a large amount of new content to the game, including two new matchmaking modes, new weapon types, an increase to the game’s level cap and more than 40 pieces of new gear.

Hmm, thought this was posted here already, but couldn't find it searching. I'd buy one even though I don't really care about the game. Now that there's a semi-crossover let's see this get made!

I don't believe so. Are the instructions to transform her are identical to BW Claw Jaw?

Er...? Run that by me again, chief?

Hasbro did repaints of several BW basics in the Age of Extinction line, in case that's what you're questioning.

I'm sorry. I thought that fan made picture of that girl was official, leading me to, with your post, ask the question if Claw Jaw's transformation was identical to that girl. :oops: Now that's clear. As for Transformers figures based from this game...it might not happen. But if so, Hasbro would probably release some minifigures of the characters, like those tiny $2 RID minifigures. (I still believe they're overpriced.)

THIS. PLEASE. I'L MAKE THE DESIGN FOR FREE.
Seriously, though, I've been working on an IDWesque design for Claw Jaw, he was my very first Transformer and I'd love to see more of him! :D

We were sent a press release for the Nintendo Splatoon Transformers event - and fellow Seibertron.com member ScottyP took the plunge, bought the game and played for the duration of the robot-theme. What did he think?

I bought this game, did the event, and the results are in the attached pictures :D This was a lot of fun.


Thanks, ScottyP! Check out the images he sent us, mirrored below, too. Did you take part? Had a different experience? Let us know in the Energon Pub.
