Published by Namco Bandai, the 2D side-scrolling action game will be released later this year, reports Siliconera.
Based on the relaunched animated series, the game begins with the Lizard army advancing on Thundera. With his allies off fighting elsewhere, Lion-O must use the Sword of Omens to repel the attack.
The game will feature sound effects and voice acting from the new cartoon, as well as concept art that can be unlocked.
Developed by Aspect Digital, the decision for it not be a 3DS release was made in order to appeal to as many fans as possible.
The new Thundercats animated series launched on the Cartoon Network last year. It serves as a reboot to the original series, which ran between 1985 and 1990.
The reboot utilises an anime art-style, due to a collaboration between Warner Bros Animation and Japanese company Studio4°C.
