As if my anticipation for this title wasn’t already reaching unhealthy levels, High Moon Studios goes and drops a little bomb that makes the wait all the worse. Peter Cullen and Gregg Berger, the legendary voices behind the leader of the autobots, Optimus Prime, and the king of the dinobots, Grimlock are adding their voices to their characters one more time. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, will also feature the talents of voice-over veterans Nolan North (Bruticus, Cliffjumper and Brawl), Troy Baker (Jazz, Jetfire and Kickback), Fred Tatasciore (Megatron, Ratchet and Metroplex), Steve Blum (Shockwave, Swindle and Sharpshot), Isaac Singleton (Soundwave) and more.
“This is the definitive Transformers video game, and we absolutely had to have these iconic voices onboard in order tell this story,” said Peter Della Penna, Studio Head, High Moon Studios. “Because it’s an origins story, we were able to explore some of the coolest characters in the lore for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, and then go after the best and most authentic voice talent possible to do the franchise right.”
“There is no mistaking the voices of Optimus Prime and Grimlock, and we are so happy that fans will get to experience a game featuring the distinctive voices of many of the most iconic and popular transformers characters,” said Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Marketing, Hasbro. “The development team at High Moon Studios did a phenomenal job hand-picking the cast for what is by far the most diverse character roster ever in a Transformers video game.”
What was also released is a video, featuring Peter Cullen and his thoughts on his character. In case you missed what I said earlier, this is the voice of Optimus fricken Prime. In it, he discusses what it’s like to be the leader of the autobots, to be entrenched in the constant fight of good versus evil, to be a paragon, and a leader. The video is below and my inner child won’t shut up about wanting to go watch G1 again before this game is released.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is coming to the xbox 360, PS3, and PC on August 28th, dear god that day can’t come fast enough.
