If you enjoyed Sega’s first foray into the Transformers franchise after they released Transformers: Human Alliance back in 2011, then you are in luck as they have launched a sequel. We’ve been covering the progression of Transformers Shadows Rising since it first appeared at Amusement Expo 2018. Today, Sega sent out this tweet that afterwards I confirmed means that the game is shipping out to locations now.

To see it in action (in the event that you missed it), here are videos of the game; first from Amusement Expo 2018, then more recently from Bowl Expo 2018:
