CUBIX: Showdown Announced

by Thomas on May 29, 2002 @ 8:56 p.m. PDT

The 3DO Company today announced the planned release of the CUBIX: Showdown game, coming this fall to the Nintendo GameCube system and the Game Boy Advance system. The CUBIX game brings fast turn-based battle action gameplay to the gaming platforms, with cutting edge graphics that rival those of the TV show.

CUBIX(TM), from 4Kids Entertainment (NYSE: KDE - News), has been renewed for a second season on Kids' WB! and has consistently earned top ratings among its 8:30 a.m. ET time period broadcast competition in Kids ages 6-11, Boys 2-11 and Boys 6-11.

Set in the future, CUBIX(TM) takes place in Bubble Town, a place where robots are a part of everyday life. The animated series follows the adventures of a boy named Connor and his robot pal, CUBIX(TM), along with a cast of both human and robot friends. They embark on numerous adventures as they attempt to repair damaged robots and ward off their evil nemesis, Dr. K.

CUBIX(TM): Showdown will take the player exploring through Bubble Town and the surrounding areas, where the powerful force Solex has infected the robots of the town, making them go haywire and destroy the environments around them. Connor, Abby, and the CUBIX(TM) gang must track down these rogue robots and battle them in turn-based combat before the evil Dr. K and his gigantic robot Kolossal get to them. Along the way, the player will enjoy solving puzzles and playing fun filled mini-games. If the enemy robot is defeated in combat, it becomes a good robot once again and it is added to the player's collection to be selected for future battles.
