    Good evening from Japan. I went to Akihabara today.
    TOMY introduces a new card game of TRANSFORMERS today.
    In a trading card shop called a Hobby Station a card game of TRANSFORMERS
    I led and was able to experience it

    The staff whom I proceeded to from TOMY guided a game in the shop.

    The player will scramble an cube by a card game.

    There were few kinds of the card which could be idle.

    [​IMG]

    The illustration of the card was a thing prepared newly.

    [​IMG]

    I who had finished playing got a special card from the staff.
    It is the card that AUTOBOT TWINS became the pattern.

    Seconded!
    That Prime card looks amazing.

    But change the name.
    'Heat Scramble' sounds like a dish at Denny's.

    Looks great! I love games, too bad there isn't too many good Transformers ones. If these were released in the west in english I would buy some and try it out.

    I see Jolt, both the car mode and robot mode! Hope it's movie accurate and not that old toy design we got.

    Anything known about the gameplay?

    For example, some of those cards feature vehicle modes, others are robots. Can you transform at will by flipping the card over, or do you need another card to transform??

    I summon the Twins in Attack position, +2000 power until the end of turn!


    The official site is here
    2 player TCG
    40 to 60 cards in a deck, Basically you play to obtain Energon cubes (provided with a starter kit, I assume).

    There are 3 types of cards, monster card, magic card and field card - oops that was Yugi-Oh.
    There are 3 types of cards, Unit cards, Episode card and Action cards.
    Players put an Episode card on the field to decide which Unit cards can be played. If you have both modes of the same Unit/character in hand, you can "Transform" them during the battle.

    There's a chart here, but it's all in text. I'll see if I can make proper translation of it one day.

    Player 1: I use Optimus Prime to attack your Magatron card which leaves him with with 50 lifepoints. This ends my turn.

    Player 2: I play Megatron in defanse mode and lay 2 cards face down. This ends my turn.

    Player 1: I use my Optimus prime card and attack you Megatron card and...

    Player 2: Not so fast! You activated both my trap cards. Card #1 is the "Hot Rod intervene and gets in the way" card which stops all your attacks. Card #2 is the "Hidden Weapon" card which allows an attack during the opponents turn with a 100 attack points which destroys both Optimus primes and your life points ending the game.
