Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and Disney will also be on hand to launch new titles and make new announcements. …and will bring all the news and updates right to you!! Ready for it?

Cartoon Network announces Generator Rex: Agent of Providence

Cartoon Network announces Generator Rex: Agent of Providence

Are you an Agent of Providence? If so, do you have these tiny alien-like beings in your body that allow, say, your arms and legs to change shape into hammers and motorcycles? Just wondering. No worries if you don’t, Cartoon Network Enterprises has you covered! Along with Activision, the pair is plotting a new interactive video game called Generator Rex: Agent of Providence. Set to hit stores this October, owners of a Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and the new Nintendo 3DS will be able to take control of Rex, the star of the Cartoon Network animated series, as he races against time to prevent Van Kleiss and his followers from destroying the earth. Pretty intense, huh – maybe now you don’t want to be an Agent!

Two Sonic the Hedgehogs in Sega's Sonic Generations

Play as Classic Sonic! Play as Modern Sonic! Whether you’re an old school fan from the Sega Genesis and Dreamcast eras, or a new age fan from Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and Sonic Colors, Sega’s latest blockbuster video game, Sonic Generations, has you covered. The title, set to hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year, features a giant throwback to old fans while inviting new fans to jump aboard. 3D and 2D adventures mixed with blinding speed can only mean one thing; Sonic the Hedgehog is back – both of them – and they mean business.

Sonic Generations celebrates Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic Generations celebrates Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog is fast, blue, and just about to turn 20 years old. In celebration of the big 2-0, Sega is bringing out what could possibly be the biggest Sonic game to hit consoles in the two decades he’s been here. The title, Sonic Generations, will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, readying to pay homage to the storied history of Sonic. The levels are like throwbacks to earlier Sonic games, re-imagining classics like the Green Hill Zone as throwbacks to the Sega Genesis, the Dreamcast, and so many eras between and since. Courtesy of some plot-based time holes, there are also multiple Sonics to choose from; the classic “chubby” Sonic, and the modern “skinny” Sonic, each with their own strengths and paths. The concept merges old with new, 3D with 2D, and all types of super hyper amaze-o speed. Best of all, it looks awesome. Check it!
