World Events Productions and THQ announced an agreement to bring back the iconic brand Voltron. WEP will work with THQ to produce Voltron-branded video games. An all-new CGI-animated “Voltron Force” series is set to launch on Nicktoons in the U.S., as well as other global partners, this year.
The video games from THQ will join a previously announced toy line produced under a separate agreement between WEP and Mattel, which plans to release toy lines based on classic Voltron this year and new Voltron Force next year.
“The video games relationship with THQ, along with our master toy relationship with Mattel, signals the exciting future ahead for Voltron,” says Robert Koplar, vice president at World Events Productions. “With its signature robot lion action and titanic-scale battles, our Voltron games and toys along with our new series are sure to have enormous appeal to fans of all ages around the world.”
