If you were a fan of the first Transformers game for Wii U, you’ll be happy to know that Rise of the Dark Spark is coming on June 24. The game is a sequel to Fall of Cybertron, which saw release on the Wii U in 2012. The game will also serve as a tie-in to Transformers: Age of Extinction, which will be in theaters this summer. While it is a movie tie-in the plot of Rise of the Dark Spark and the progression will be different from the movie, so fans of the series will be pleased with that move.

Do you like what you see so far? If you enjoyed the first game, will you be picking up this sequel?

    I normally dont like to nit pick, but did anyone else notice the massive drop in frame rate towards the beginning? Either way, hopefully itll be a good game for fans of the series.

    • uPadWatcher

      It’s a YouTube video. Therefore, it’s unreliable.

      • Wren Justin Umlauf

        Very true. Just made me wonder because the rest of the video was so smooth.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      I think all Wii U games seems to have framedrop issues. Its probably because it doesnt got enough shaders.

      • LordYukYuk

        This game is also coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. I seriously doubt they’re showcasing the Wii U version in the trailers. Any “framerate” issues you’re seeing are likely issues with all versions of the game.

        Hahaha, people still don’t seem to get your sarcasm here.

  • Rinslowe

    That was one terrible looking trailer tbh…
    Some genuinely sketchy animations.

    • SleepySkullhead

      Likely just because it’s still in early development or something, plus the environments weren’t that detailed.

  • LordYukYuk

    Fall of Cybertron never came out on Wii U. The only Transformers game on Wii U is Transformers Prime which was a tie-in with the animated series of the same name.

  • Wow, even the trailer framerate sucks. . . O.o

  • DragonSilths

    Another Activsion game coming to Wii U, but again the 1 key title is absent still, Destiny, I don’t get you Activision, You seem to want to support the Wii U, but you leave out your biggest game. As for this game, it looks meh. I don’t think I have seen a Transformers game that looked great…

    • Wren Justin Umlauf

      I’d say Call of Duty is their biggest game, not that I’m a big fan of it, but they are giving us that. I think Destiny is their most anticipated game tho for sure, and I would love if they brought it to Wii U. It would probably be a day one purchase for me if it was.

      • DragonSilths

        Cod isn’t a game. Its a virus that nearly killed the gaming industry in the 7th generation.

  • Dark Lord Sauron

    pass anything that has bay movies tied end will suck big time

  • Gam

    “The game is a sequel to Fall of Cybertron, which saw release on the Wii U in 2012. ”

    Whoa there, no need to derail the fact train, but Fall of Cybertron wasn’t on the Wii U since, never.

  • Saul Rivera

    Was going to comment that the first game never came to the Wii U…but seems everyone else noticed haha

    • Gam

      Please be more specific on what first game, cause the first TF game for the WiiU was Transformers Prime.

      • Saul Rivera

        She is saying this is the sequel to Fall of Cybertron so that is the first game everyone is mentioning…

  • Mario

    Wait… I saw two versions of Bumblebee. One is the version seen in the games and the other from the movies.

  • Joel

    Being a Transformers fan since I was a kid it’s sad that I’ve never really played a Transformers game I liked. This one doesn’t seem to be much different.

  • Rich Garriques

    yeah fall of cybertron never came to wii u this is the first fall of cybertron alike game for wii u which is a good thing.

  • SleepySkullhead

    Ashley, you nearly gave me a heart attack saying Fall of Cybertron came out on Wii U since I had just recently bought it for my 360.I’m very glad this one is coming to Wii U though.

  • kentray1985

    The transformers look a little improved but the levels looks unfinished. The last game had all kind of things happening! I really wish this series find a great developer and make a true next gen transformers game.

  • iamserious

    Looks kinda cool.

  • Dallas Gooch

    Didn’t they give the Wii some shitty rail shooter called Cybertron Adventure or something Instead of Fall of Cybertron?

  • CEObrainz

    I got a Unreal Tournament vibe from the trailer for some reason, but if it’s anything like that then I’d give the game a shot.
