Major publisher THQ has announced the latest set of forthcoming Nickelodeon-licensed titles, having already sold 45 million units under the license agreement, including the new El Tigre (pictured), updated titles based on SpongeBob and Avatar, and live action adaptations Zoey 101 and Drake and Josh. The family-friendly games are to debut on multiple systems, but are especially focused around Nintendo DS, with Nintendo's Wii and PlayStation 2 also receiving a number of the games. Just one title (Avatar) will debut on Xbox 360, and none will come to the PlayStation 3. A full list of titles to debut is as follows: - Nicktoons 2007 (Working Title) -- Players must defeat Professor Calamitous’ vast army of evil toys based on the Nicktoons Heroes in this fast-paced action platform game.
