Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game Promo Video

Posted on 10-14-2014 at 12:03 PM by Sol Fury under Video Games
Takara-Tomy have uploaded a promotional video for the Hero Z produced Japanese market only Transformers Ultimate All Stars Mobile Game. The promo video gives a short demonstration of the way the game works - which seems to consist of picking your team of warriors to pit against an enemy team. There seems to be a story mode, if the way that character artwork flashes up accompanied by text is any indication.

It seems to be a cute and inoffensive little mobile game - one geared around the person on the move needing a quick burst of robots in disguise action. The promo shows that the whole of the Japanese Generation 1 continuity from the original US show through Masterforce and Victory are in, along with Beast Wars (which in Japan was divided into two 26 episode shows, Beast Wars and Beast Wars Metals)
