The original 1984 animated television series - Voltron: Defender of the Universe - starred the titular robot hero, with five mech lions combining to form one giant robot warrior. Now video games? Check it out!
THQ and World Event Productions (WEP) have announced that Voltron is set to make his way into the video game world, with a series of titles planned in a deal between the two companies.
Apparently, the video games will build upon the original epic 1984 adventure, which transformed Voltron into a pop culture icon known the world over. THQ has yet to confirm platforms for the Voltron titles, but given the character's appeal, it doesn't seem too far-fetched to imagine that the games will make their way to high-end consoles.
"The video games relationship with THQ, along with our master toy relationship with Mattel, signals the exciting future ahead for Voltron," said Robert Koplar, Vice President at World Events Productions. "With its signature robot lion action and titanic-scale battles, our Voltron games and toys along with our new series are sure to have enormous appeal to fans of all ages around the world."
THQ's Voltron video games are expected to debut in autumn 2011.
