Social media and gaming was indeed the big thing in the worldwide industry these days. Transformers franchise is joining the bandwagon in planning to take Transformers to a new frontier.
Thanks to Takara, they have decided a new product launch that could interest a lot of fans. In combination with a company called Inter-Media, the makers of Transformers are behind a fresh development called ‘Transformers for GREE’. This will mean that users will be given the capacity to play social games and watch cartoons online using their mobile devices.
Not the Bayformers or the many, many relaunches and redesigns; a slight variation on the original Convoy and his Cybertrons versus Megatron and his Destrons (or Optimus Prime, Autobots, Megatron and Decepticons as we know them).
Like so many new titles, Transformers for GREE will be a social card game. Players will be able to choose a faction, then build a virtual deck around them. Then they will be able to complete quests leading to boss battles, fuse two cards in order to get more powerful ones, or battle it out with other GREE users.
Transformers for GREE will launch on Japanese feature phones on February 10, and on smartphones on February 28.
