Platinum Games tackles a venerable property in its latest action effort.
A new Transforms game leaked overnight. Unlike recent efforts tired with the Michael bay movies, Transformers: Devastation is a cel-shaded tribute to the 1980’s cartoon.
We were already pretty excited about that, but now it looks like Transformers: Devastation may be Platinum Games’ E3 2015 reveal.
The news comes via Best Buy Canada, which has Platinum Games down as the developer on its retail listing for Transfomers: Devastation.
The listing also confirms a number of the original cartoon voice actors will lend their talents to the project.
Here’s Best Buy’s full description, in case the listing is pulled:
