Voltron: Defender of the Universe coming this October to XBLA and PSN

THQ has revealed some details about the upcoming Voltron video game, first hinted at in the listing for a Comic-Con panel later on this week. The title will be called Voltron: Defender of the Universe (yes). It will be available on XBLA and the PSN later on this October (yes!) and allow up to five players to team up together as the five lions of the Voltron Force, even combining at one point to wield the Voltron sword as a team (YES!).

Unfortunately, before the 10-year-old in you gets too excited, know that the game is being developed by Behavior Interactive, makers of the less-than-impressive Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime. The first trailer for the title shows some interesting dual stick shooter gameplay, but nothing that really convinces us this is a great game just yet.

Maybe lessons were learned, right? THQ is scheduling Voltron: Defender of the Universe for the week of October 25, and it will cost $10. We'll be at the Comic-Con panel later on this week and let you know what we see there.
