Voltron: Defender of the Universe is a franchise that keeps giving it a shot. A combination of two different Japanese television series, Golion and Dairugger XV, Voltron was a child of the 1980’s, and a precursor to the dominant combining robots of the 1990’s, Power Rangers. While a 1990s series took them to The Third Dimension, a current series on Nickelodeon mixes 2D and 3D animation. THQ, on the other hand, mixes up various gameplay modes for it’s upcoming Voltron: Defender of the Universe title for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in this newly released trailer.
Going back to the original series, this new game focuses on the core five pilots: Hunk, Pidge, Princess, Lance, and Keith. Their battle with King Zarkon’s Robeasts takes place over levels focusing on the individual lions, alongside their combined form. Players can play with up to four other friends in the game.
Voltron‘s rarely been tackled in the video game field; will you be arguing with your friends on who’ll form the head?
