Five-player co-op? Of course the forthcoming video game based on Voltron: will have five-player co-op, with each player controlling the mechanical lion of their choice, each player working together to wield Voltron's Blazing Sword to dispatch some big bad guy in 30 seconds or less.


Voltron: Defender of the Universe is THQ's first video game based on the iconic '80s anime series. It's coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this October (for ten bucks) and will be featured at this week's San Diego Comic-Con. IGN has new details and a trailer on the game that offers five-player co-op online, two-player co-op offline and something for single-player only types to do.


Developed by Behaviour Interactive, they of Naughty Bear, Wet and Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime fame, Voltron: Defender of the Universe, expect some of the better known battles from the Voltron cartoon to appear.

Here's your first trailer for Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

"some of the better known battles"? Oooh, like the one where Voltron fights a robeast, starts doing really poorly, then finally whips out the blazing sword and chops it in half? Then there was that time when Voltron fought that robeast. The robeast almost won, then finally Voltron formed it's blazing sword and cut the robeast in half.

My favorite Voltron battle was that one time when a robeast fell from the sky. The lions eventually formed Voltron and still was getting it's butt kicked. In a last ditch effort, the plucky Space Explorers, get this, they form their blazing sword and make two halves of a robeast from a whole!

I loved, loved Voltron when I was 5.
