That's not how "real story" works, you kumquat. It's implied by default it's a story that exists because you can't possibly base something on a story that DOESN'T exist. Real story means it actually happened, that it's not fiction.

It isn't supposed to, it's called Mystery of Convoy because you're supposed to find out where the fuck Optimus/Convoy went.

This is all wiki stuff, so it may not be totally accurate, but it's said the game bridged the end of Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers' season 2 with the start of season 3, as in Japan the movie wasn't released over there yet.

Still, that misspelling is pretty terrible.
