It's a Voltron game! Yeeessssssss. And it's for the iPhone! Hrm.

Published by Sony, Voltron: Defender of the Universe will be out later this month, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the series.

It's based on the original Voltron (am I the only person in the world who preferred the one with the vehicles?), with the kids and the lions, and is a combination of isometric exploration and 2D combat. It's due not only for the iPhone but other mobiles as well, with pricing expected to be between $3 and $10, depending on your carrier/phone.

Sounds alright, but we're still waiting on a developer to make the dream Voltron project (see below).

I remember thinking the vehicle Voltron was really cool and exotic - as a kid, and because the episodes were almost never shown.

Now, with the wonder of Netflix streaming, I can watch all of them. And I have to say, there's a reason the vehicle voltron was hardly shown in the US - it sucked serious ass.

Now, I can't speak to whether the original, unedited show was great or not. But the US edit is almost incomprehensible.

The US edit of the Lion show, OTOH, had an easily recognizable story, especially for the first 5 episodes or so.

Robotech was better than both of them, anyway :)
