THQ has announced plans to deliver another game based on the Nickelodeon cartoon series, The Fairly OddParents. The new game, subtitled Shadow Showdown, will feature six levels based on episodes from the show.

As the story goes, TV reception in the land of Dimmsdale has faded out completely. After missing the season finale of his favorite show, Timmy teams up with his Fairy Godparents to get to the bottom of the problem. This quickly uncovers a new villain, an evil known as simply, The Shadow.

Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda set out to stop The Shadow, and along the way you'll be able to use 18 new wish inventions, including the pogo stick of justice, repair-o-tron, suit spray, and the supercleft freeze ray.

Clips from the show will be sprinkled throughout the PC and console versions of the game. As an exclusive bonus, the PlayStation 2 version will contain a complete episode of the show as an unlockable bonus.

The console versions of Shadow Showdown are more in the 3D adventure category, while the GBA version scales the adventure down to a 2D, side-scrolling perspective.

Fairly OddParents: Shadow Showdown is scheduled to be released on the PC, PS2, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance this fall.
