A lot of ThunderCats
fans have been concerned by the recently relaunched series' noted absence at this past year's Toy Fair
and on Cartoon Network's new season guide
. Well, regardless of whether it provides any assurance of a second season or just a holdover of marketing efforts that were already in motion, those fans should be pleased to discover that Namco Bandai and Aspect Digital have a new ThunderCats video game for the Nintendo DS
(not 3DS, sadly) set to drop in August
. Players will control Lion-O (with assists from fellow cats Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, and WilyKit/WilyKat) as he cuts down evil lizard guys and charge up the Sword of Omens. The game seems like a fairly standard 2D action game, but I doubt most players will mind since it seems to let them shout "ThunderCats Ho!" and clear a screen of foes. Check out five screen shots from the upcoming ThunderCats
DS game after the cut.
