Namco Bandai Shouts "Thundercats, Ho!"

Purring onto DS

Cartoon reboot Thundercats is getting a DS game courtesy of Namco Bandai.

The side-scrolling action platformer comes courtesy of Naruto Ninja Council developer Aspect Digital and is due out in August. As you defeat enemies as Lion-O you gather energy for the Sword of Omens: once you've hoarded enough, you can shoot a damaging beam from the front of the sword. You know, like in the cartoons.

You'll only play as the bushy-haired hero Lion-O, but you'll be able to unlock assist characters Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro and Wily Kat & Wily Kit. No Snarf? Too bad.

Use your sight beyond sight in the comments to tell us how you think this one will pan out.
