After being pulled away from the G1 experience because of the movie tie-in for the third Michael Bay abomination, the team at High Moon Studios brings us back to Cybertron to continue the epic they began with Transformers: War for Cybertron. This time, they came back with more of what people loved about G1 including the Dinobots and the voices of both Optimus Prime and Grimlock. Alongside Gregg Berger who brings back the iconic voice of Grimlock, Peter Cullen will be reprising the role that he made famous with Optimus Prime
In the interview trailer below, Cullen talks about the character of Optimus and the differences in recording for the cartoon, the movie and the game. It is very notable that Cullen heavily praises the game’s story and it seems that he feels a lot more investment in the character through Transformers: Fall of Cybertron than he did with the movie.
From the look of things in this trailer, it appears there will be a head on confrontation between Optimus and Megatron. Also, it looks like Bumblebee is back in action despite the previous Metroplex trailer should Bumblebee being out of commission and being carried on to a transport ship. Strangely absent from the trailer though are the Dinobots and the Combaticons. This may be one of those instances where the less we see of them in advance of the game being released, the more awesome their presence will be once we get to play.
Check out the full interview below with Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is due out on August 28th for PC, XBox 360 and PlayStation 3.
