We got a blink-and-you'd-miss-it teaser trailer for this summer's next Transformers video game today at a Hasbro toy showcase in New York City. That little bit promises a Transformers game from a good development team, a team that's sprinkling in a dash of car combat.
The new game is from High Moon Studios, creators of last year's well-received Transformers: War For Cybertron. That game took place in its own version of the Transformers universe. Dark of the Moon, however, will tell a story that leads into this July's third Michael Bay-helmed Transformers movie, also subtitled Dark of the Moon. The game trailer showed Bumblebee, that famous yellow Autobot, driving out of the back of an airborne cargo plane, turning into a robot as he plummeted to Earth and then transforming into a car armed with guns as he hit the ground. An Optimus Prime voice-over boasted that Transformers can have many modes, suggesting that we'll be playing Transformers who can do more than simply turn from vehicle to robot.
