The IGN website began streaming the trailer for Voltron: The Game on the YouTube service on Monday. THQ is planning this videogame version of Voltron, the 1984-1985 American adaptation of two anime series, for the XBox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network services this October. According to the trailer, a user can play the game solo, or a team of up to five online players can play simultaneously. In the story, five young people pilot robotic lions that can combine together to form Voltron.
The American company World Events Productions (WEP) and the late Peter O'Keefe adapted the first 1984-1985 Voltron television series from two Toei Animation robot anime: King of Beasts Golion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. The first Voltron series ran for 124 episodes (including a season of WEP-commissioned episodes) from 1984 to 1985, and an American computer-animated Voltron: The Third Dimension series ran from 1998 to 2000. WEP is now producing a new Voltron Force television series for the Nicktoons channel, although Toei Animation is not involved.
