All right, so publisher THQ might have been lion about the October release date for the new Voltron XBLA/PSN game, but the wait is almost over for the latest exercise in robo-combinatorics.

The downloadable game based on the beloved cartoon (and more beloved die-cast toy) will be released today on PSN, and tomorrow on XBLA. In Voltron: Defender of the Universe, players each control one robot lion, choosing their preferred vehicle based on speed, range, and other unique stats. They then use their color-coded robocat to battle Robeasts in an isometric view.

Then, when it's time to combine, players each control their own lion as a component of Voltron. We're looking forward to finding out if we have the skill to do anything but fall over.
