This Transformers Devastation trailer is literally smashing

Well it looks like Platinum Games might just be able to undo Michael Bay's decimation of your formative pop culture memories. This new trailer for Transformers Devastation (opens in new tab) is ridiculously pretty and all about the combat.

"Platinum Games spent a lot of time trying to match each character’s personality with a complementary fighting style," says a post from game producer Robert Conkey on the PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab). "Bumblebee, for example, attacks faster than any other Autobot, but he sacrifices a fair amount of power. And Wheeljack’s mechanical ingenuity translates into an attack pattern that centers on ranged weapons."

The trailer shows off a highlights reel of each character's unique brand of destruction. "Along with their individual sense of style and timing, every character also has his own set of unique moves and mechanics," explains Conkey. "So, just because you’ve mastered Optimus Prime’s combos doesn’t mean that Grimlock will be a cakewalk."
