Last year's short but memorable Transformers: Devastation
featured a boss battle with Shockwave where the one-handed logician displayed a fascinating, very video-gamey power: the ability to create duplicates of himself.

Even Kenji Saito, the director on the Transformers: Devastation game from Activision that was released Fall 2015.

As expected, Transformers Game on Facebook has posted a video showing off the moves you can expect to face down in the Soundwave boss battle. Among Soundwave's array of attacks is calling upon Ravage and Laserbeak to help out, though Ravage doesn't show very prominently in this video. The video also highlights rather well the incomplete voice filtering, as despite being vocoded, Soundwave comes across rather soft and smooth. Not exactly fitting to what the cartoon taught us to expect. We of course have a number of screencaps, plus the embedded video, so keep reading!
