Signal Studios is getting ready to release its next toy-themed tower defense title. Last time out, we were transported back to the 1980s and fought as Rambo. This time, Ubisoft is digging deep into that same era for more nostalgia.

Ubisoft has licensed He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and G.I. Joe are at your disposal when the game launches this summer. Two more licensed properties are also planned for the game's Hall of Fame edition.

The standard version ships with four armies led by Kaiser Wilhelm (the Germans), Starbright (the colorful Bunny Bears, Ponies, and Pixies), Phantom (the futuristic Ghost Company), and Dark Lord (leading a team of humans, monsters, and dragons).

Toy Soldiers: War Chest will be out this summer for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The standard edition is priced at $14.99, with the Hall of Fame edition at $29.99. Those that wish to upgrade to one or more licensed armies later will have that option a la carte ($4.99 each) or in a bundle ($14.99).
