Game Informer reports that DeNA Games has announced Transformers Battle Tactics, a free-to-play SD turn-based strategy game (think Super Robot Taisen/Wars
) coming soon to both the iTunes App Store and Google Play! Character designs are based on the upcoming Combiner Wars comic series. Seeing as how the 3DS version of Rise of the Dark Spark
was the only halfway decent version of that game, turn-based strategy may well be a good fit for our favorite robots. Keep reading to see the trailer! UPDATED
with more information, screenshots, and pre-registration bonuses!
Battles are swift and require strategic decision-making to propel players to victory. Each Transformers character has unique stats and abilities, which shift as players convert them from robot to their alternate mode. The unique graphic style is inspired by the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars characters and comic book series. Transformers: Battle Tactics includes an expansive single-player campaign, story-driven in-game events and real-time player-vs-player (PvP) matches for players around the world to engage in strategic battles and rise to the top of the leaderboards
Pre-Registering at the official site
adds to a Bonus Meter which will dictate what all preregistered players will get as a gift when the game launches early next year. You'll also have the chance to vote on receiving Trailcutter or Cliffjumper as a bonus character if the gauge reaches 500,000! Currently, Cliffjumper is unsurprisingly in the lead with about a 70-30 split.
