War for Cybertron Bonuses, Wii Rename, and Bumblebee Voice

Three news pieces regarding Transformers: War for Cybertron that is coming out June 22nd.

First up are the pre-order bonuses for the game. Gamestop customers who pre-order will get a code to unlock Shockwave who looks a whole lot like his Generation One source only I think his alt mode is a jet but that is just a guess. Amazon customers can unlock Demolishor, who appears to be based on his Transformers: Armada incarnation. Based on that assuming his alt mode is a tank. This bonus is limited to PS3 and XBox 360 versions and the use of the characters are limited to multiplayer's Escalation Mode. I don't know if this is all the exclusives that will be available or if other stores will get their own.

Second piece of news is the renaming of the Wii version of the game into Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. The DS, PS3, and 360 names remain the same. The information is via the ESRB's Rating Information for the game. No explanation is known for why the rename since current knowledge indicates the game is a less graphic intensive version of the PS3 and 360 versions.

Final piece of news is the voice of Bumblebee for the game has been revealed as Johnny Yong Bosch who has done a lot of video game voice work over the years. This info was confirmed via his tweet, "So one of those games I couldn't talk about voicing is finally up on IMDB. Bumblebee in Transformers: War For Cybertron." Aside from Peter Cullen, the rest of the voices for the game remained unconfirmed. Thanks to Christopher for the link.


  1. Well, this is a little surprise. From the voice casting side for the TF game, Johnny Vong Bosch who voicing Ichigo from Bleach and other anime series which is unexpected and other voice actors doing voicing Transformers... can't wait who it is. And Demolishor as exclusive character for the game, cool!

  2. It's "Johnny Yong Bosch" not "Vong". ^_^

  3. My mistake. I misspelled with the wrong letter. So anyway, can't wait who else is voicing the Transformers for the game.
