Nintendo DS Gets a ThunderCats Game

There will be a new game based on Cartoon Network’s modern update of the Thundercats, as developer Aspect Digital (of Naruto: Ninja Council) and Namco Bandai are currently working (or has finished working) on a new Thundercats game for the Nintendo DS.

Note that the game is for the Nintendo DS, instead of Nintendo’s newer 3DS. On the one hand, it means that the graphics will probably not meet current gen standards, as the DS is nowhere near as capable as the 3DS or even the PSP, but on the other hand, it is still good news because it means the title will be available to a broader range of audience, due to the fact that a lot of gamers have held on to their DS while the 3DS users will still be able to play the game due to the handheld’s backwards compatibility.

ThunderCats for the Nintendo DS will follow the storyline of the Cartoon Network series, with the game starting during the Thundera invasion of Slythe’s lizard army. The game is a standard side-scrolling hack and slash, with the player controlling Lion-O exclusively. Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, and the Wilys can be summoned using the touchscreen for assists, while the sword of Omens can be used to unleash a screen-filling beam of destruction.

The game will use 2D graphics instead of taking advantage of the DS’ rudimentary (compared to the 3DS, at least) 3D-rendering capabilities. The game is scheduled to come out on August this year.
