Transformers Games Coming To iOS And Android By Way Of Mobage
Get ready for a three-year licensing deal with Hasbro that'll hopefully bring quality games starring Optimus Prime and Co. to your favorite devices.
Transformers is on its way on iOS and Android. Hasbro inked a three-year licensing deal to develop and publish mobile games on smartphones and tablets, with the first title from DeNA coming to us by way of the Mobage social gaming platform.
"Our global platform has continued to thrive and grow, and we're now investing in major entertainment IP," said Neil Young, Director of DeNA and CEO of DeNA's U.S. subsidiary ngmoco, LLC. "Transformers is a highly beloved brand, with dynamic characters that are universally cherished by fans. We are excited to bring the Transformers world to life for mobile gamers."
"DeNA is a proven global leader in mobile social games," said Mark Blecher, GM and SVP, Hasbro Digital Media and Marketing. "We're delighted to team-up with DeNA to offer a compelling Transformers experience on the leading mobile platforms. DeNA's innovative approach to mobile gaming is a great fit with the Transformers brand."
That's it in terms of details. No word on whether these games will tie into movies or the TV series. We'll just have to wait and see, but at this point, it's good to know iOS and Android will play host to another powerful license.
