Remember Thundercats? Yeah, sure you do. Back in the ’80s, a lot of you were probably enthralled by the adventures of Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and the rest. It ran for four seasons, initially, spawning toys, comics and, finally, a new series that began on Cartoon Network last year.
Well, those new adventures on Thundara have now spawned a video game spin-off. That’s right; this summer, Namco Bandai and Aspect Digital Entertainment are releasing a game based on the new series, exclusively for the Nintendo DS. The side-scrolling beat ’em up lets you play as Lion-O, and will feature Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKat and WilyKit as support characters, each with a unique role and special attack.
The game will throw you into the middle of pitched sword fights and robot duels based off of the new series. That’s really all that we know about the game right now, but you can expect to hear more before ThunderCats is released on the DS this August. In the meantime, you can check out some screenshots from the game below.
