‘Voltron’ Episodes Go Online
Maybe it was the recent interview with Voltron: A Legend Forged writer Josh Blaylock here on ComicMix that got them psyched-up to do it, but Xbox LIVE Video Marketplace has added the first two seasons of Voltron: Defender of the Universe to its list of downloadable videos.
If you already have an Xbox 360, then don’t hesitate to get the very first episode, "Space Explorers Captured," because it’s free. Other episodes will cost 160 MS Points (roughly $2 in the U.S.).
Travel to Planet Arus and uncover the secret of a weapon from ancient times — Voltron! Keith, Lance, Sven, Hunk and Pidge arrive too late, the planet has already been completely devastated by the evil forces of King Zarkon. They engage in battle with Zarkon’s general, Yurak, only to be captured and thrown into the dungeons on Planet Doom.
Like all cartoons from your childhood, they might not hold up to your memories. (Space mice? Really?) But the nostalgia’s worth the initial price. After that, you’re hooked. Darn animation pushers.
