Transformers: Prime - The Game is a video game developed by Altron and NOW Production for the Wii, Wii U, DS, and 3DS. platforms. It is published by Activision, and was released on October 30, 2012 for the DS, 3DS, and Wii, and on November 18, 2012 alongside the launch of the Wii U, making it the first Transformers game on that console.
The game takes place alongside the events of the second season of the Transformers: Prime cartoon (sorta, see below), and involves the Autobots and Decepticons battling over a mysterious meteor made of Dark Energon and its legendary contents.
The game mostly features third-person melee combat, although some shooter sections are included. There are certain collectibles which allow you to 'upgrade', improving the character's stats based on their skills (eg. It improves Arcee's combat skills). Occasional driving sections are also included. The Wii version includes full voice acting and uses motion controls, while the 3DS version takes advantage of the 3D capabilities of the system and uses touch-based controls. The DS version features exclusive content and is compatible with a 2DS system also.
Story Mode gameplay for Wii and Wii U is broken into 13 stages, each with a varying number of segments. Unlike previous Transformers titles, the Autobots are the only playable characters, with no Decepticon story campaign.
