In a news article on THQ Nordic’s website they have come out with some surprising information regarding upcoming games.
THQ Nordic and Nickelodeon have signed an agreement upon which they will revitalize many old game titles for the modern gaming market. The list of games consists of:
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Back At The Barnyard
- Danny Phantom
- El Tigre
- Invader Zim
- Jimmy Neutron
- My Life As A Teenage Robot
- Rocket Power
- Rocko’s Modern Life
- SpongeBob SquarePants
- Tak And The Power Of JUJU
- The Fairly OddParents (US only)
- The Ren & Stimpy Show
- The Wild Thornberrys
“The appetite for Nickelodeon content old and new continues to grow and it’s exciting to bring our beloved content to new audiences through this partnership with THQ Nordic,” said Jon Roman, Senior Vice President, Toys, Nickelodeon. “These titles were popular when they were first released and we can’t wait for fans around the world to rediscover their favorites.”
This is quite interesting, as it in a time where reboots are happening for certain games of yore. It’s a good project to have in store for the modern gaming era. Plus, in a way, newer audiences will get to experience what we did as younger folks without having to experience the problem in mechanics they had at the time.
Personally, out of all the games being mentioned I am most stoked for an updated or even just new Avatar: The Last Airbender, I played the first Avatar game back on the Playstation 2 and while it was mostly mediocre, it still felt great to be in the world after having watched the entire series. So, if THQ Nordic and whomever they will put in charge of development does a good job. Then I will certainly look forward to hearing more about the game once more news comes out.
One thing that I’m happy to see is a collaboration between Nickelodeon and THQ who have proved in the past they can make good games. All I can hope is that there won’t be too much restriction and let the developers in charge of the projects have the freedom needed to make a good game for us to try in the future.
Although there haven’t been mentioned what platforms these games will be on, it can be safe to bet it will be on PS4, Xbox One, PC and potentially the Nintendo Switch.
You can read more about the article on THQ Nordic’s website and see what people have been commenting about, maybe you will gain an interest in at least one of the titles presented by them.
Nevertheless, do tell me what you think about this. Write it down in the comments and let us have a discussion going.
Stay Cozy and have a nice day!
