ThunderCats Roars To Nintendo DS This August

By Kevin on Apr 18 2012 07:17 PM
Namco Bandai of America producer, Austin Keys, has confirmed that ThunderCats will be released this summer (August) for the Nintendo DS. A playable game demo was recently seen on the show floor at the Global Gamers Day’s press conference. ThunderCats is a side-scrolling action-platform game, based on the new cartoon series.

All levels come directly from the TV show. The only playable character is the Lion-O, the game's main character. There are, however, other characters that can be used for support during gameplay. The support characters can be called upon during battle by using the Sword of Omens,  to help Lion-O out.

The game itself appears to be a typical type side-scroller with basic moves such as run, jump, and attack. No other information was passed for the new ThunderCats game, but I'm curious to know how well it plays.

Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats! Hooooooooooo!

I love the original and new versions of the Thundercats. I can't wait to see some screen shots.

...and a teaser trailer:

I feel a little disappointed by this.
All I can say is that if Snarf isn't in this game, I'll definitely feel disappointment.

And, for all those old enough to remember watching this growing up, I found an awesome HD intro for the original cartoon. Most of you weren't even born yet, but this was one of the greatest cartoons to watch in the 80's. Wow, I'm feeling a tad nostalgic.

Check out new Snarf

woah I was just a little tike in the 80's I was born in 1977 but I do remember seeing some thundercats stuff when I got a little older.
I love the new anime series. It is literally amazing. I am not sure about this title though... only time will tell
