Feel the magic, hear the roar

An official trailer for Thundercats has finally put a release date in place for the DS action epic. The game had previously been scheduled for a North American release September this year, but was pushed back a month.

The side-scrolling action game follows the first six episodes of the rebooted Thundercats series where players will battle through action, controlling the heroic Lion-O, as they run, jump, and slash their way through Mumma-Ra and his evil forces in an true Thundercats experience.

Players will also be able to summon Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, and WilyKat from the hit animated series while collecting memorial cards as they complete their goals throughout the game.

There's a new date for your games calender. Will you be picking up Thundercats for DS?

Call me when there's a Wii U brawler/RPG of Thundercats ready to take my money.

Love the show, really wish they would have step this up to the 3DS, but since it's targeted at kids of younger age, there are bound to be more DS then 3DS user base... hope to see more Thundercats games in the future.

It should be titled: Generic Brawler DS: The Game (guest starring Thundercats).

After all these years we finally get a Thundercats game and it looks rubbish.Loved it as a kid along with He-man and had all the toys.A LOZ style game of either of these classics could be amazing.The cast and stories are already there so all we need is the right dev.someone like Monolith or Retro to bring it into HD with an art style like the original cartoons and the dark story and we have game of the year.Fighting Skeletor in Castle Greyskull or Mumm-ra with Skyward Sword controls sounds awesome to me

The new cartoon blasted the old in my opinion.

However, nothing will beat Sym-Bionic Titan when it comes to action cartoons for me. BRING IT BACK CN/[AS]

I hate to sound like an old stick in the mud but while I like the new series's art style I still prefer the original Thunder Cats.

I do think that Thunder Cats would make for one of the few good modern licensed games, Sorta like the current Batman ones.

Maybe its because I wasn't around to appreciate when it aired but that intro made me lol, it seemed so amusingly stupid to me.
