Variety brings us news that THQ has acquired the rights to Voltron for video games. The first game will launch around the same time as the new animated show Voltron Force on NickToons in the Fall of this year. The first entry in the video game series will follow the adventures of the original show from the 80’s Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Mattel will also be launching a brand new toy line based on the new series expected around the same time. I would not be surprised if there was a sub-line dedicated to the original line much like every other 80’s cartoon revival going strong today.

It should be noted that THQ recently also reached an agreement with Mattel itself, to create games based on its own in-house properties including Barbie and Masters of the Universe.

If we had our pick of lions, I’d probably pick to be the Yellow lion to take on Robeasts prior to ganging up and forming Voltron. How about you? Let us know in the comments!
