Are You Ready to Form Voltron?

When I was a kid, my brother and I used to watch Voltron: Defender of the Universe every day. There was something that oozed cool about it. Maybe it was because it had a bit of anime-inspired sophistication to it; it didn’t talk down to kids the way other cartoons did. Or it could have been those big honkin’ lion robots. Yeah, it was probably the robots.

In conjunction with the upcoming Voltron revival, Voltron Force, which will be airing on Nicktoons in 2012, THQ has secured the rights to create video games based on the property. Despite the enduring popularity of the brand, only one video game has ever been made based on it, and that was just a $.99 iPhone app. THQ hasn’t yet announced any details of what they’re working on — just that their first Voltron game will be released to coincide with the new cartoon. So we’ve got a while to wait on this one.

But I think it’s high time gamers were treated to a full-on, bad-to-the-bone Voltron game with next-gen HD graphics and some killer giant robot fights. So here’s my question to you, gamers: what would your ultimate Voltron game be like?

Would you control one of the robotic lions’ five human pilots in a new take on the vehicle sim? Would it be a squad-based first-person shooter where you play as a robot lion with four robot companions, where you take over control of Voltron when the five robots join together? Would it be an RPG set on the planet Arus? A platformer?
