    Same situation also applies to TMNT, they haven't gotten a stellar modern 3D action game and previous attempts to do so were duds. No credible studio has come forward to Nick to make such a game, and Nick is mostly interested in churning mobile games for the brand, similar to Hasbro with TF.

    At least TF has several good console games though.

    Also agree on the cinematic front for video games, it has led to very boring walking simulators that I refuse to call to even call them games.

    Heh heh. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite completely destroyed my battery (and my phone) within a year.

    Best to play these on a secondary phone with good battery life. I've seen some brick-sized Android phones by Energizer. Might do the trick.

    I can't even muster fake enthusiasm. Damn, Transformers has so many options for video games, and it seems the only thing we ever get nowadays is mobile trash.

    Don't particularly care about the game itself, but I'm liking the aesthetic. It's definitely still heavily based on Evergreen, but I can see some other influences in there too. Bumblebee reminds me of the 2018 design (especially from the back), and the red robot almost looks like something out of Universe (the cancelled online game from a while ago). I really wish something like the Netflix show used these designs.

    This has the chance to be really good. Not only is this a chance to fix what Wizards Unite screwed up, but with the roster and the franchises history a lot of mileage can be made. I can see myself playing the demo if it ever comes out in the West.

    Even better chances imo. If Forged to Fight and Earth Wars can get some fuel from the writers of the cartoon and Simon Furman, surely this came can as well.
