Best Buy also revealed the game's box art (right), which confirms that it will be published by Activision - who still hold the rights to Transformers games.

The game is likely to be multi-platform, but also cross-gen, with versions on PS3 and Xbox 360.

A number of screenshots were also leaked, showing off what is essentially a video game version of the iconic original cartoon series, with the same animation style and robot designs rendered in much higher detail than the 80s series.

A number of the original voice cast are also set to return according to the Best Buy listing, which has since been taken down but which can be read in full below.
