A brand new Transformers Mobile Game is set to release in Japan next year. Titled as Operation Omega, the game features Super Deformed characters with a gameplay style similar to Transformers: Battle Tactics.

The game is developed by Heroz Inc. who are famous for developing strategic games.
Operation Omega is a sequel game to Transformers: All Stars (also developed by Heroz Inc.) which will be discontinued. The new game is set to debut March 31st, 2016.
Transformers Devastation is out TOMORROW! The Generation 1 Transformers game we’ve yearned for, the game that lets you play the cartoon many of us grew up on in the 80s, is almost here.
To tie in with the launch, Machinima have posted a trailer video showing the showdown of the two giants of the Transformers mythos – Optimus Prime vs Megatron. There might be some spoilers in this video, which is an awesome showcase of two robots whose rivalry has spanned three decades, and there’s no love lost between them!
Refreshingly, the following words are not uttered in the video: One shall stand, one shall fall.
Right on schedule, the Transformers Game Facebook page have posted the video of Grimlock in action as a follow-up to the profile card they shared yesterday. Like any gameplay with Grimlock in it, the video showcases the Dinobot leader’s incredible strength and combat efficiency in both robot mode and dino mode. We also get to hear some more lines from his G1 voice actor Gregg Berger, as he roars battle cries and claims victory mid-battle over the puny Decepticons who stand in his way.
Transformers: Devastation comes out next Tuesday so be sure to get your pre-orders in before it’s too late! And check out the video here to catch all the action!
It’s one week to go until the official release of Transformers Devastation! As the time draws near, the Transformers Game Facebook page has put up a profile of the big guy himself, Dinobot commander Grimlock! True to his classic incarnation, Grimlock is all about strength and power in both modes – and when that does not work, he uses his powerful fiery breath!
That’s not all though, as via Gamestop there are a couple of video clips showing Grimlock in action, with Gregg Berger reprising his role as the voice of Grimlock. Check it out to see Grimlock in action in Transformers Devastation – arriving in just six days!
To top it all off, there’s also a couple of new screenshots, one showing Devastator himself, and another showing Megatron sporting his new tank alternate mode.
T. J. Fixman, who is most famous for writing the story for the award-winning video game Ratchet & Clank has been hired by Hasbro to be a Creative Consultant at Hasbro Studios.
Mr. Fixman’s job is to build stories (or we call them ‘World Building’) for Hasbro’s Portfolio Brands (title usually refers to Transformers, Nerf, G. I. Joe, Monopoly and My Little Pony) across all platforms, including film, television and digital.
We wish him all the very best for his tasks ahead.
The Transformers Game Facebook feed has updated with a video showcasing Soundwave in Activision’s upcoming Transformers Devastation game. Soundwave is a formiddable opponent, with his minions including Laserbeak and Ravage at his disposal as well as missiles and energy blasts – but that’s not all, because he brings the Sound and the Fury to the battle, by which we mean his very arena can be manipulated by his mastery of audio, like a gigantic graphic equalizer – which you’re fighting him in the middle of.
Soundwave, superior. Autobots, inferior?
The next weekly update from the Transformers Game Facebook page is here, this time with the short bio and action pose for Soundwave. As usual, the profile gives us a taste of what players will be up against in one of the game’s many boss fights. Going by his description, Soundwave will likely be a great challenge for many as he has quite an arsenal at his disposal. Said arsenal will include the use of his cassettes and barrages of sound pulses as well as plenty of missiles and various energy blasts that will be hard to get around. He may be an unchrasamatic bore, but Soundwave will have firepower than rivals even Grimlock’s power of fire and is a force to be reckoned with.
Transformers: Devastation is slated for release on October 6th this year and is available for pre-order (bonus skins included) for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC (now available for pre-purchase on Steam).
IGN has posted a You Tube video with PlatinumGames Developer Interviews for the upcoming G1 based Transformers game; Devastation.
What was told:
- New “Challenge Mode” is included addition to the Story Mode.
- Challenge Mode will contain 50 standalone missions.
- Five Difficulty Modes from near-casual “Scout” to insanely difficult “Prime”.
You can check out the video, after the jump.
True to form, the Transformers Game Facebook page has updated with a video showcasing Starscream in the upcoming Transformers Devastation game. You get a flavor of how Starscream fights in this clip, and you can also hear some clips of his voice, which is not quite the same as the classic voice we know, but close enough as a sound alike to the late, great, Chris Latta.
