Via Tformers comes the reveal of a very cool new Transformers figure: The Mega Drive Megatron. A collaboration between SEGA and Takara Tomy, the figure is, as you would expect from the name, the Decepticon leader Megatron who transforms into a SEGA Mega Drive. This special edition figure was revealed at the Tokyo Toy Show Winter Wonder Festival, and from the photos it is assumed that the figure will act as a USB device based on the end of Megatron’s arm mounted weapon. Once we learn more of this awesome figure, including where you can buy it, we’ll be sure to let you know!
SEGA’s Arcade company, Sega Amusements, announced a Transformers arcade title was in the works and has recently uploaded a teaser trailer of the upcoming game.
It seems to be a new light gun game due to the two colored cursors on the screen and may be similar to Terminator Salvation. I certainly can’t wait to play this game at a near Dave and Busters or Gameworks, how about you guys?
Here is the first trailer for both of Sega’s new Transformers Arcade games. The games are quite obviously geared towards a much younger audience.
Like many of Sega’s recent Arcade games this one requires you to collect real world playing cards with transformers on them then you can scan them into the game and use the transformer on the card. It appears that the same cards work on both machines.
One game is seems to be a simple onrail shooter where you play as your selected autobot and then shoot down other transformers. The other is a racer, I’m less clear on what this one involves but you seem to have to switch between your ‘car’ mode and ‘robot’ mode to chase down other transformers.
