When Michael Bay unleashes his vision of the live action Transformers movie this July, Activision will be right there with not only console renditions of the flick, but also a pair of action games made specifically for the Nintendo DS platform.
That's right, a pair. Two versions of Transformers will hit shelves for the summer release: Transformers: Autobots, and Transformers: Decepticons. If you want to be the good guys or bad guys, you've got to pick up the proper version because, even though the two games will feature similar gameplay, each version will have its own set of characters, missions and story progressions. This isn't a Pokemon-style release; you're getting two different experiences with the two different Transformers games on the Nintendo DS -- there will even be environments unique to each version; for example, Autobots will head through Antarctic levels, where the Decepticons will have exclusive access to Desert terrain.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, the team responsible for the DS versions of Spider-Man and Tony Hawk, Transformers will challenge players with more than twenty different missions and have the opportunity to scan and assume the form of more than 30 different vehicles. How cool will it be when you'll be able to transform into a sports car, fighter jet, or helicopter and zoom around the open world environments? You'll even be able to customize your paint job.
Transformers will fully support the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for the ambitious "AllSpark War." Players will link up to the internet and combat to try to see who the more powerful side is. Team Death Match and AllSpark Sports will also be available for up to four players over local Wi-Fi.
Watch for a release of Transformers on the DS just in time for the theatrical release on July 4th.
