THQ Nordic has announced that they'll be reviving over a dozen classic Nickelodeon Games in a news post on their official website.

Nickelodeon is fondly remembered by many people of my generation who grew up with the likes of Avatar: The Last AirbenderSpongebob Squarepants, and countless other classic cartoons that aired on the cable television channel. Some of these shows are still going strong today, and many of them were popular enough to warrant video game adaptations in their heydey. Unfortunately for fans of these series, many of these games are on consoles from one or more generations ago and are becoming increasingly difficult to find and play.

That's all changing today with the announcement by THQ Nordic that they've struck a deal with Nickelodeon to bring back a number of these games to modern platforms. Here's the list of titles that we can look forward to:

  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Back At The Barnyard
  • Catscratch
  • Danny Phantom
  • El Tigre
  • Invader Zim
  • Jimmy Neutron
  • My Life As A Teenage Robot
  • Rocket Power
  • Rocko's Modern Life
  • Rugrats
  • SpongeBob SquarePants
  • Tak And The Power Of JUJU
  • The Fairly OddParents (US only)
  • The Ren & Stimpy Show
  • The Wild Thornberrys
This list only shows us the particular cartoons that THQ Nordic will be working with. Many of these shows have had multiple games released for them - THQ had published over 30 games featuring Spongebob Squarepants in some capacity, never mind how many other titles there might be for all of the listed series.

There's also the question of which platforms we'll be seeing these games on. The news post makes mention of current and next-generation platforms, but it doesn't state if that means only consoles or if we'll be seeing some or all of these games on PC as well. We can look forward to hearing more specific announcements about on-shelf availability for some of the titles based on these lovely Nickelodeon shows in the coming months. In the meantime, we've reached out to THQ Nordic for comment on clarifying some of the specifics about this announcement.

What do you think about THQ Nordic announcing the revival of several Nickelodeon games? Are there any particular titles that you're looking forward to? Would you like to have the ability to purchase some of these on PC? Let us know in the comments below!
