Takara-tomy have uploaded a trailer for Transformers Go! on to their Youtube channel. The preview shows a brief clip of Kenzan racing into action and transforming – in Feudal Japan, no less! The clip demonstrates that the animation will be a hybrid of styles, combining cel animation with CG robots, and combining the detailed Japanese stock transformation style with the on-the-fly style used in Transformers Prime.
Also of interest is that there are some brief snippets of character bio (in Japanese). The combined modes are named GouKenzan, GouJinbu and GouGanoh based on which one out of Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganoh forms the upper body. In the footage Jinbu can also be heard describing himself as possessing advanced speed or agility, and Ganoh boasts that his power is “number one”. Although not confirmed in the video, this fan would expect that these attributes carry over to the respective combined forms.
Check out the video clip below – and it might also be worth noting that there will also apparently be a McDonalds Happy Meal special DVD.
