When there’s a whole universe to defend, you’d better be a pretty big robot. Or, better yet, be a pretty big robot comprised of 5 pretty big lion robots. Think we’re joking around? Just ask Voltron, the start of the 1980s Classic Media cartoon as well as the recently relaunched series on Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons, Voltron Force. As if running two amazingly popular cartoons in two amazingly diverse decades wasn’t enough, now Voltron is headed to Sony’s PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade as a downloadable title. On November 29th, join the intergalactic battle in the new Voltron Defender of the Universe video game – that is, if you’re up to the challenge!
