    Transformers: War for Cybertron Eyes-on - Nintendo DS Preview at IGN

    Here's what we know. There will, of course, be both Autobots and Decepticons campaigns again. Vicarious took a look at the storyline powering the Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3 and ran with it while staying true to the integral plot points. Between the two versions, there are 30 playable Transformers -- 15 Autobots and another 15 Decepticons. You'll find all your favorites in the roster, including stapes like Optimus Prime, but also the likes of everybody from Bumblebee to Jetfire. Many of the characters become unlocked as you play through the title, and find secrets in stages and during the multiplayer mode.

    More info in the link.

    wonder if the same counts for console . 15 for each faction. That would be great. I think it is unfair that for example: the DS version has Mixmaster and the Console Version not.

    The character switching mechanic sounds very encouraging when paired with the puzzle solving examples suggested there. It seems like there's going to be some interesting play mechanics involved, and lots of exploring every last little crevasse of every level to find all the secrets.

    It's perfect for a guy like me who enjoys the exploration / puzzle aspect of a game.

    I wonder if those seen in the trailers, confirmed in Magazines and newly released pictures (DSi/PS3/360) will be universal or exclusive to certain machines to make them unique:confused:  I suppose the line up could look like this:

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Ratchet
    Iron Hide
    Jetfire
    Silverbolt
    Skydive
    Fire Flight
    Slingshot
    Air Raid
    Warpath
    Grimlock
    Windcharger (*)
    Omega Supreme

    Excluding Omega Supreme, That’s 13 characters.

    Decepticons:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Soundwave
    Brawl
    Breakdown
    Trypticon

    Possible others:confused:  :
    Motormaster
    Drag Strip
    Dead End
    Wildrider

    Onslaught
    Blast Off
    Vortex
    Swindle

    Excluding Trypticon, that’s 15 :eek: 

    *Windcharge/Sideswipe or whoever is put in place of the mystery Autobot standing next to Prime and Bumble in the gameplay reveal trailer. As Shockwave is a Gamestop pre-order exclusive, I didn’t add him to the list (he’s only playable in one mode anyway).

    That sounds pretty cool and unexpected for a DS game.

    So with this news I think I might be getting more than one version of this game- DS and Wii! (Nintendo all the way guys!) I can't wait for the damn game to come out period. Every time I watch a new trailer for it I get goosebumps cause I'm in awe of how awesome it's going to be and I'm so excited to play it. I just hope the Wii version won't be really dumbed down like the Ghostbusters game that came out last summer.

    Wow, 30 characters? Nice. Hope it is open world like the 07 DS games! Also, hope it has a Create-a-bot as well.

    The DS version actually sounds pretty neat. I'll probably pick it up.
