Nerd Corps Launches Slug it Out!
Choose your ammo... Slug it out! Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy adventure set deep underground, where the ammo's alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world every cavern holds a new adventure, new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered. Eli Shane is determined to be the greatest slugslinging hero of them all. To do it, he'll need to collect and train an army of little critters called slugs. When these magical creatures are fired at 100 MPH out of a high-powered blaster, they transform into powerful battle beasts! The adventure follows Eli and his team of friends as they explore the caverns, challenge rivals and each other to duels, upgrade their cool gear, and generally have a blast in this never-before-imagined underground world. But there is a very real threat to Slugterra; Dr. Blakk is seeking to "ghoul" the slugs, transforming them into feral mindless weapons! No one has been able to stand up to Blakk's powerful ghouls and army of henchmen... until now! The 39 x 22-minute episodes series is targeted to kids 6-11.
Slugterra is airing on Disney XD in the US, Canada, Australia, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Additional broadcast will rollout around the globe through 2013. A toy line developed by JAKKS Pacific will hit shelves in spring 2013, with several additional key licensees signed on for the brand and rolling out merchandise throughout 2013 and beyond. Nerd Corps Entertainment is launching its first iOS game for the brand, Slug it Out!, which has been produced with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund and the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund.
