Activision has released the voice cast for their upcoming sequel, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, and fans of the original series are in for a treat. Topping the list are two fan favourites… Peter Cullen is returning as the sage voice of Autobot leader Optimus Prime, while Gregg Berger, the man behind the hulking Dinobot Grimlock, will be bringing many of his trademark soundbites to the video game. I can’t wait to hear him howl, “Me Grimlock no bozo! Me king!”
In addition to this, many of the actors from Transformers: War for Cybertron will be returning, including Naughty Dog veteran Nolan North as Brawl, Bruticus, and Cliffjumper. Troy Baker, soon to be heard in The Last of Us, returns as Jetfire, while also tackling the roles of Jazz and Kickback. Fred Tatasciore (Megatron, others), Steve Blum (Shockwave, others), and Isaac C. Singleton (Soundwave) have also benn welcomed back into the fray, the trio voicing most of the Decepticons.
You’ll be able to hear all their cybernetically enhanced vocal boxes when Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for the Xbox 260, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 28. Or, you can check out the announcement trailer above.
