Platinum Games upcoming Transformers: Devastation is like a saturday morning injected int your eyeballs. The travesties that are Michael Bay’s movies are swiftly forgotten with this first gameplay trailer, offering up the most authentic cel-shaded recreation of the 80’s Transformers cartoon we’ve yet seen.

Originally announced back at E3, Transformers Devastation is from Platinum Games, the minds behind Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Bayonetta, and Vanquish, among others, so it’s got some serious action game pedigree behind it. Despite being hulking great trucks and the like that turn into battle robots, this is the same lightning-quick brawling PG has made a name for itself for. 

Transformers: Devastation is out on October 6th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

What do you make of the retro-inspired Transformers: Devastation? Do you think Platinum Games can strike gold again?
