In the land where the Transformers were born - no, we’re not talking about Cybertron - a new robot franchise is set to be born and it’s serving notice to everyone that they’ve got the perfect car-to-robot set-up that could potentially replace Optimus Prime and company.

It’s called Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter - no idea what that means - and the early renderings of the characters show some definite promise, particularly the licensed vehicles that are expected to be part of the franchise. Check out the photos and you’ll see that there’s a Toyota GT 86, a Mazda RX-8, a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, and the Godzilla itself, the Nissan GT-R.

Created by Square Enix, the people behind the Final Fantasy video game franchise, Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter was first launched recently as an arcade game with an animated film version set to be released later this year.

No word on yet on whether this new animated franchise will head outside Japan, but from the looks of things, we’re expecting a lot based on what we’ve already seen.

I am Confuse on this game? Is this an action game? I think if they make it as racing game, it will be better.

Wow, they even make those beautiful car into an anime. I’m glad because my son really loves car but since he is still a child, anime cars are the one he plays now.

Square Enix is really good on making this kind of anime. I think this will Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter will gain lot of popularity like Final Fantasy which is also made by Square Enix.

I like the most detailed robots or auto-bot. I don’t like it on an animated piece.

Yeah, will it be also on the Transformers game on PS 3?

It looks animated far from the computerized characters of transformers game I played on the PlayStation 3.
