TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS
SAN FRANCISCO –December 10, 2014– DeNA and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:
HAS) today announced TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical
combat game based on the TRANSFORMERS universe, is currently in development for
iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android devices. In TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE
TACTICS, players will collect iconic TRANSFORMERS characters, assembling teams
of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS characters, including fan favorites found within
the pages of the IDW Combiner Wars series, to battle friends and fans from
around the globe. Players and TRANSFORMERS fans can pre-register to receive
updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at
launch at the website: www.transformersbattletactics.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TATICS will be
available as a free download and will feature more than 75 classic TRANSFORMERS
characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, and BUMBLEBEE.
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.
"TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS
blends fast action and strategic gameplay with a style TRANSFORMERS fans of all
generations will appreciate,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships
and alliances at DeNA. “From collecting new TRANSFORMERS to creating mash-up
teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to battling against friends and fans around
the world, players will have an epic amount of content to enjoy once the game
‘Rolls Out’ in 2015.”
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the
third title in an exclusive three-year agreement between DeNA and Hasbro to
develop and publish mobile games based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise. Extending
beyond the card-based battling in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS and the runner action
of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION games – The Official Mobile Game,
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS marks the first mobile turn-based strategy game
set in the beloved TRANSFORMERS universe.
"The strategic combat and
visual style of TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is a really fresh, fun and
exciting take on the TRANSFORMERS brand,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming
& Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will
be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices in 2015. To
