THQ details 2007 Nickelodeon lineup

More SpongeBob, more Avatar, and another Nicktoons crossover lead the way for publisher's slate of games based on kids' cable network.

"Heeee's baaaaack!"

Licensed games carrying the WWE, Nickelodeon, and Pixar brands have been a huge part of THQ's business strategy in recent years. And while the publisher has said it wants to bring in a greater percentage of its revenue from original games, it's still looking to boost the bottom line with a full slate of licensed offerings.

THQ today announced its lineup of Nickelodeon-licensed games for the rest of the year, and gamers can expect more games based on SpongeBob SquarePants, Avatar, and the rest of the kids' cable network staples in the coming months. This year's roster will feature the first Nickelodeon game for the Xbox 360, as well as the interactive debut of the network's latest star, El Tigre.

A full list of games and platforms follows:

Nicktoons 2007 (working title)--PlayStation 2, Wii, DS, Game Boy Advance
SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis--PS2, Wii, DS, GBA
SpongeBob's Atlantis Treasures--Mobile phones
Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Burning Earth--Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, DS, GBA
El Tigre (working title)--DS
Zoey 101: Field Trip Fiasco--DS
Drake & Josh: Talent Showdown--DS

The animated shows could possibly be good fodder for videogames, but Zoey 101? C'mon now. And Drake & Josh isn't even a good TV show, so I can't imagine how it would ever become a good game. If I can't control one of them and get him to kill the other, then it can't be worth playing.

Erm a lot of you seemed to misunderstand that these games infact are not aimed at you, they are for gamers younger than you who do not read gaming sites or share your tastes for the best games out. They are infact a very profitable age bracket as they demand whatever tv tells them too and THQ stand to make a lot of cash from these licenced game. Im going to go out on a limb here and guess many of you are teenagers who have yet to realise our planet actually orbits the sun and not yourselves...

hatchet guy, why are you so concerned about zoey 101 games, homie? you got your little icp icon and stuff, so shouldn't you be somewhere listening to terrible rap/metal instead of discussing nickelodeon games? i'm just sayin, dude. it ain't lookin right. plus, you commented twice on the same subject, so you must really care. also, how can they not make an avatar game cartoony? it's based on a cartoon, genius. matter fact, anyone over the age of 11 talking about how nickelodeon sucks and this and that, you need to get a life. stat

ditto "GizmoVirus " You guys are grown up...of course you will think its lame. But, how about all those millions of kids who watch those shows. "never-named" you have obviously grown out of it. Still a huge market whether you guys like these games or not.

I have been an adamant Spongebob fan for as long as I can remember but I have to admit that the show has really started to lose it's lustre since the last three or four years.

OK now the audience includes (3,4,5,6,7,8 and so on years old) Little boys who don't even have the sense to choose a game tsk tsk !!! :D

I think the sad thing is that THQ makes more money with these games than they do with the critically acclaimed games they make, and that they need money from the swill to fund the good stuff. That ain't right!

I imagine these games will be for the younger gamers, so stop complaining about them sucking if your a hardcore gamer.

Boo! At least a 95% of these games will probably end up being mediocre at best...

A Drake & Josh video game....Why the hell would they even come up with such an idea??!! Not even kids will buy that kind of game!

Once again, another company gives original Xbox owners the middle finger. Thanks, guys. We appreciate it. Luckily (or unluckily, because these games will all probably suck) I own a DS. See? I'm not too much "last gen." Only slightly.

Jesus people. THQ markets these games for children (Which SELL A$$LOADS). Of course you're not interested. Just because its coming out on your system of choice, doesnt mean you have to buy it. They'd be idiots to pass up millions of dollars in profit just to be "cool" in the eyes of a hardcore gamer.

All the games are on the DS cos thats on a roll right now. None of the games are on PS3 cos its doing badly and expensive. 3 Of the Games are on Wii cos its cheap to make games for. One is on Xbox360 cos its the only one that would have any chance of selling on that system. If you dont like these games, who cares, let people who like this stuff buy them. "These games will ALWAYS be HORRIBLE!!!!!! THQ you have FAILED as a game company that makes good games. So why keep going.........? " - They do have their fair share of crap games, but they also have published some of the best games ever, i.e. Company of Heroes, Dawn of War...

Doesn't sound that bad. Last year's Spongebob game was the greatest Spongebob game ever, and was quite decent. This year is probably better.

Superdance14: I agree. These games are all poor. I usually hate about 99% of movie and shows made into video games. Bad graphics, bad gameplay, and we already know the storyline usually.

@SyluxElite THQ markets the majority of their games to little kids. And with great success. Just look at Hannah Montana on the DS. 520,000+ Copies sold. Sure they only make a few games for older age groups, but its good to have games catered to the younger audiences.

THQ need to move away from lincensed titles. Original games are the way forward. Start a SupCom sequel already.
