Old titles coming to modern consoles

By Grayshadow, Posted 21 Mar 2018

During the late 1990s and early 2000s, THQ and Nickelodeon worked together on several titles across many platforms that featured characters from notorious shows. Since THQ shut down 5 years ago THQ Nordic has been acquiring the former studios' assets and reviving older games such as de Blob and DarksidersNow they've partnered up to revive several older titles for modern consoles.

Jon Roman, Senior Vice President of Toys at Nickelodeon, stated that the partnership with THQ Nordic would bring their content to a new audience.

“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. These titles were popular when they were first released and we can’t wait for fans around the world to rediscover their favorites.”

THQ Nordic’s Vice President of Digital Sales & Business Development in the Americas Adrienne Lauer commented on the partnership.

“This one hits close to home! We are very proud of signing this agreement, which was originally executed by the “former” THQ Inc. We believe the combination of strong licenses and solid, crisp gameplay was one of THQ Inc’s trademark strategies, and we intend to continue this tradition. I am confident we chose one of the strongest partners for doing just that. It is a perfect fit for our “asset care” strategy: bringing back fan-favorites, continuing to support legacy games and make them available on current and even next-gen platforms.”

As a 90s kid, I remember a lot of these cartoons and seeing them return in video game form will definitely reawakening pleasant memories of watching them.
