ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. AND PLATINUMGAMES INC. CHANGE THE FIGHT IN TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION
New action-brawler video game lets fans experience the TRANSFORMERS like never before
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 16, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), today announced it is teaming up with acclaimed development studio PlatinumGames Inc. to release a groundbreaking new game starring the TRANSFORMERS Generations characters. Based on Hasbro’s colossal entertainment franchise, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a breathtaking comic book-inspired visual style.
Forged with PlatinumGames’ gift for fast-paced action and mesmerizing art design, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect. In this incredibly dynamic, combo-fueled experience, players battle as one of five AUTOBOTS – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK. Throughout the game, players unlock new skills, forge new weapons, and augment their characters to battle against the vicious DECEPTICONS, including MEGATRON and the powerful combiner DEVASTATOR.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create contemporary versions of the bold, brightly colored designs of the original TRANSFORMERS characters. The game features a story inspired by the IDW comic book universe and includes the talents of legendary voice actors like Dan Gilvezan as BUMBLEBEE, Frank Welker as MEGATRON and SOUNDWAVE, Gregg Berger as GRIMLOCK, and Peter Cullen as OPTIMUS PRIME.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to arrive later this year on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.

How'd that work out for ye, Sega? (54 minutes ago)
"Sega does what Nintendon't" (55 minutes ago)
The only time I can remember a real rivalry was the Megadrive and SNES, and even the Nintendo just did their own thing. (56 minutes ago)
Not to say they'll find success in their strategy this go around.. we'll see. I'm more confident in at least a meager success than most because I think they have more riding on this than WiiU. (4 Hours ago)
That's because you don't understand Nintendo. They've never built a platform around their competition. They've literally always avoided it. Since forever. (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: probabaly comes from the time when they were actually competative and wanted to succeed? It's been so long i can't pinpoint when exactly that was. (4 Hours ago)
Nintendo has been weird since they packed a robot in with the NES. (4 Hours ago)
