Slugterra Begins A Global Launch This Fall
Nerd Corps Entertainment announced today that Slugterra, its newest global kids property, is set to rollout this fall with the launch of the animated television series.
Disney XD will be the global television partner for the show, which premiered in Canada on September 8 at 2 p.m. EST and will hit US airwaves on October 15 at 3:30 p.m. EST. The series, which targets boys ages 6 to 11, is the kick-start to a full property rollout from Nerd Corps, which includes a comprehensive show site at www.Slugterra.com, an online flash adventure game and iPhone and iPad apps based on the series. A toy line from Jakks Pacific will hit shelves in early spring 2013, and several key licensees are in place for consumer product launches in 2013 and beyond. Following the North American series premieres, Disney will launch the show around the world through 2013. Nerd Corps is continuing to lock down agents in key territories, as well as terrestrial broadcast, and will announce more deals through the fall.
To support the series rollout, Nerd Corps Interactive has launched www.Slugterra.com, a robust fan site featuring the online adventure platformer game, Battle for Slugterra. Set in the same fun and fantastical world as the television series, young Eli Shane must traverse the 99 known caverns of Slugterra while collecting powerful slugs, solving puzzles and battling a horde of nefarious enemies along the way. The game will launch a series of “caverns” throughout 2012 and beyond, each offering 10 levels with cool new slugs and power ups to collect. Players can build their slugslinger ranking in the world as they progress through the game, and eventually take on leaderboard challenges. What do you think about that?
