Wii players can’t handle the concept of war, CONFIRMED! Activision has today confirmed that Transformers: War for Cybertron will be heading to Wii with the less threatening name of Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. This new name applies only to the Wii version. The DS version will still be known as War for Cybertron, as well as the 360/PSN alternative.
It’s not yet known how different the Wii version will be. Perhaps it will work like Ghostbusters did, where the Nintendo system gets a more kid-friendly artistic style and content. Right now, Activision has only confirmed a name change, so it may just be the same game. We’ll have to wait for the assets to start pouring in.
War for Cybertron aims to be a comfortable middle ground between old school G1 Transformers and the current Michael Bay atrocities. With slightly redesigned but noticeably traditional looks for the robots in disguise, the game has serious potential. I sincerely hope it’s good, as I could do with a fun Transformers game. They’re so few and far between.
