Cartoon Network has recently announced their intention to team up with Activision to create a video game spin-off of Generator Rex: Agent of Providence a sci-fi cartoon that is currently on its second season. The series features the talented voice acting of John DiMaggio, known for voicing everyone from Bender on Futurama to Marcus Fenix in Gears of Waras well as actor J.K. Simmons. The game will be released for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii and Nintendo DS although no release date has been confirmed yet.

The cartoon itself id based on the comic by M. Rex that was published by Image Comics in1999. The show stars teenager Rex, who due to nanites is able to transform his body into various machines. I’ve only seen a few episodes of the show, but from what I’ve seen it’s highly entertaining and hearkens back to the ‘golden age’ of Cartoon Network

For more information, be sure to visit the Generator Rex website, and for those of you who haven’t seen the show, check out the opening sequence below for some context.
