A tower defense game with He-Man and G.I. Joe? Sold. There are two other licenses in play, although Ubi hasn't announced 'em yet. Looks like it'll retail for $29.99.

I'm kinda surprised this is a budget title and not yet another figures+games thing (though I guess He-Man is Mattel and Joe is Hasbro).

Loved the other Toy Soldiers games. Easy purchase for me.

Looking at the box art, the two unannounced "licenses" have to be Cobra and She-Ra. I mean, it's common sense, right?

Spoiler:


Turns out it's Cobra and Ezio from Assassin's Creed. Didn't expect that last one, did you?

The game is now out and available for purchase in-store for $29.99 or in the PSN Store for $14.99 in a base, unlicensed set or $29.99 with He-Man, GI Joe, Cobra and Assassin's Creed content. You can also buy the base game and add the licensed stuff later for an additional $4.99 each/ $14.99 for all four.

First Review is now up. 7.5 from Destructoid

...although that reads like an initial impressions piece rather than an actual review. (Which makes sense since he said he's playing a retail copy, and the game just came out today!)

Reportedly Ubi didn't send out review copies. They told at least one site they were going to but didn't actually follow through. That radio silence is really bizarre. Ubi didn't officially confirm a release date until a couple weeks ago, they didn't make review copies available to the press, and even Signal Studios hasn't done the usual "our game is out today!" tweet.

I have some Xbox Live credit from the Golden Crisp promo. I might just get this one digitally.

It's already under $20 for the base version.

$10 at Walmart & Amazon. Worth it?

Can get it for $5 at Amazon as there is a $5 credit you earn by downloading some Amazon Underground app on Android/PC (details on CAG, SD).

I believe 1 or 2 achievements/trophies are bugged and currently unobtainable if you care about that sort of thing.

It looks cool and I loved the first one.
