Activision has announced the development of Transformers Prime, a new kids video game based on the hit animated TV show produced by Hasbro.

The game lets fans play as their favourite Autobot characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil Megatron and his new secret weapon. Players step into the roles of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Autobot Ratchet, Bulkhead and more in fighting and driving gameplay sequences.

Transformers Prime will be released later this year for Wii, 3DS and DS.
