Nickelodeon Games Are Making A Big Return, Thanks To THQ Nordic
The 90s provided many glorious cartoons for fans, some of which even went on to become video games. Thanks to THQ Nordic, we’ll get to relive some classic Nickelodeon games in the coming months, as they’ve just announced they will be bringing some fan-favorites back into the fold.
In a recent press release, the company announced that they were teaming up with Nickelodeon to revive some of our favorite memories with fantastic cartoon-inspired titles including Invader Zim, SpongeBob SquarePants, Rocket Power, The Wild Thornberrys, and so much more. You can find their statement below, followed by the list of Nickelodeon games that are set to make their return:
“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 one hits close to home! We are very proud of signing this agreement, which was originally executed by the “former” THQ Inc,” comments Adrienne Lauer, VP Digital Sales & Business Development Americas at THQ Nordic. “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.”
