Transformers: Rising Mobile Game English Version Enters Beta Test Phase

Posted on 11-12-2014 at 03:35 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
TransformersRising Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is informing us that DeNA has initiated the Beta Testing phase for the English Version of Transformers: Rising Mobile Game.

After the sudden announcement of the cancellation of G. I. Joe: Battlegrounds, Transformers fans were left wondering if the same fate would fall on Transformers: Legends as well. Announcement of a new game titled Transformers: Battle League by the same company didn't help the matter either.

A while back, Transformers: Rising was announced as well. However, Mobage stated that there is no need to panic; for Transformers: Rising is only targeted to the Asian audience. But this new development seems to be proving otherwise.

Currently, we have to look into another aspect as well… Combiner Wars. It was stated that Transformers: Legends game will play a certain role when Hasbro carries on with this new initiative in 2015. If you have been following Transformers: Rising game, there is already an event called Combiner Wars and Combiner Cards are available on Transformers: Rising whereas Transformers: Legends does not. We can speculate that this new game may be a way to incorporate Hasbro’s plans as a game.

If you want to be a beta tester for the game, Transformers: Legends Facebook Fan Page is giving a direct link to download the Android version of Transformers: Rising. No announcement for the iOS version yet.

Posted on 11-11-2014 at 11:42 PM by Mechafire under Generations / Classics
92951708-160a-456a-a6ea-90ed47657af4_zpsa838006e Rumors aplenty these days! This one should make all you combiner fans out there very happy. Following on from the recent Leader Class Ultra Magnus rumor, we now have a rumor originating from our own forums concerning a possible Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! This has been brought to us by two separate sources, and can be checked out in TFW's ongoing Combiner Wars speculation thread in the Toy Discussion forum.

Take this all with a grain of salt for now, but it it turns out to be legitimate, there is a chance it could be revealed around the time of one of next year's conventions. And of course, a big part of this is speculating as to the specifics of the release .
