Sega; the world famous game developer who created Sonic The Hedgehog is working on a new Arcade Game titled Transformers: Human Alliance.

According to Arcade Heroes, itís a shooting game where humans (presumably the player) fight alongside the Autobots to save the planet. They presume that it is a light-gun game. The testing for the game is carried out in China at the moment. The site also says they do not know how it will go from there and is waiting for more information.

This is ridiculous. Why not make a light gun game where you shoot as the Autobots alongside other Autobots? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think people are interested in Transformers games because they want to play as humans.

Wonder how this works with Activision having the license.

Remember how as a kid, you wanted to be Robin so you could fight alongside Batman?

I remember all the kids fighting over who gets to be Batman. But I see your point. And it's too early to make a good judgement this game, isn't it? lol

Yeah, I wasn't judging the game itself because it's way too early, but if the concept is as it was described in that article, I'm going to be a negative Nancy . While it can certainly be a great lightgun game, to me, it wouldn't feel like Transformers if I'm playing as Shia with a gun.

The first thing that came to my mind was Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. That was the terrible War for Cybertron on-rails shooter right?

Yes.

At the very least they can always stick these around the Transformer ride at Universal since it seems to be movie themed anyway.

That's kinda neat, wouldn't mind trying it out. Wonder if the player switches characters while playing? Like TF some levels, human others.

"Human Alliance"?! Oh, are we finally getting Prim-- oh, it's a game. And seemingly just for China. Hrm...

Well I think a MW3 survival mode type game where you play as a N.E.S.T. Soldier would work pretty well.

Any mention of what cities it's in?

I wonder if the test is still going on. See the date of that article originally indicates the "weekend" was last weekend, not this one coming up.

Also I'm surprised no one picked up on it, but I know the internet is pretty big. I'll see if I can dig something else up.

Oh and I wanted to point out that Hasbro never registered their trademark for Human Alliance (seems weird right?) but if you see its usage it usually is a subline imprint of their Mechtech trademark.

And about Activision, I don't think it makes any difference. They obviously don't have the rights to games in China, hence that RPG isn't made by them at all. That may mean the game will not be able to come to the US, or that Activision might be able to work some licensing deal... Or it is even possible that Hasbro considered arcade games to be separate from computer/console games when it comes to licensing.
