Teen Titans is a video game created for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube, and released in 2006. It is the second video game based on the Teen Titans franchise. It was preceded by Teen Titans on the Game Boy Advance in 2005, and later succeeded by Teen Titans 2, released in 2006 for the Game Boy Advance. While this game uses assets, references and character stories from the TV Series, the game is by no means connected to the TV Series; however, it still remains part of its universe.
The Titans receive a video game starring themselves, and Beast Boy and Cyborg immediately start playing it. While playing, the Titans experience a flash and then are attacked by H.I.V.E. soldiers. The Titans are attacked by multiple villains they've already put in jail, and then find out they've been trapped in the game they were sent. They battle villains including: Jinx, Gizmo, Mammoth, Mumbo, Plasmus, Cinderblock, one of Mumbo's bunnies, Ternion, and Slade. Robin thought it was Slade who sent them the game, only to find out he's a fictional character as well. They then encounter the Master of Games, who then is discovered to be fake, too. The Titans then find out it was the Player who was controlling them, and they break the fourth wall by talking to them. The game ends with Raven sensing that they were still being watched, and Beast Boy offering the player to play again.
