D3Publisher and Cartoon Network Enterprises announced the development of three new video games based on popular Cartoon Network animated shows.
This fall, fans will be able to enjoy new games Adventure Time and Ben 10 Omniverse, as well as the first video game for one of Cartoon Network’s top series, Regular Show.
Pendleton Ward again teams up with developer WayForward to create Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!. The all-new action game will be available for the first time ever on the Wii U system from Nintendo, the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC, as well as a return to the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system this fall. In a new storyline and adventure, fans will have to save the Candy Kingdom by exploring the mysteries surrounding a massive Secret Royal Dungeon deep below the Land of Ooo. Players can select from an assortment of fan-favorite characters from the show, including Finn, Jake, Marceline, Cinnamon Bun, and more, and team up with your friends in four-player co-operative multiplayer as the Emmy-nominated Adventure Time world comes to life.
Making its first foray into the video game world, Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land brings the characters and humor from the Emm-winning animated comedy to Nintendo 3DS this fall. When best friends Mordecai and Rigby get transported into some of their favorite video games they’ll have to use their best skills and unique abilities to traverse the various challenges to escape and get back home in this ‘eggscellent’ journey. Developed by WayForward, in close collaboration with show creator J.G. Quintel, Mordecai and Rigby prove that a day in the life of Regular Show is anything but.
In Ben 10 Omniverse 2, the latest installment in a top-selling global interactive franchise, players will be able to control Ben Tennyson in an all new adventure set in the Ben 10 universe as Ben battles a new foe, the Incurseans, and infiltrates this new enemy’s intergalactic warship as he finds his way home. Though he’s still armed with his trusty Omnitrix, Ben will face brand new challenges including chase and escape sequences as well as constant battles against the forces of evil. Players will have to make every action count as you race Ben against the clock, creating the most kinetic Ben 10 game to date. Developed by High Voltage Software for consoles, and by 1st Playable Productions for the handheld version, Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is based on the long-running, popular Cartoon Network animated series, and follows the adventures of Ben Tennyson, a teenager who wields the Omnitrix, a device that allows him to transform into various alien forms such as Gravattack, Four Arms, and many more alien forms. The new game will be available this fall for the Wii U system, the Wii system, the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, Xbox 360, and the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system.
“For Cartoon Network fans, this fall will feature the release of three fantastic games from D3Publisher that tap in to the unique tone, fun and adventure of each of these great original series,” said Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products, Cartoon Network Enterprises. “With strong creator involvement and a sense of what games our fans want to play, we’re excited to build on the tremendous success of last year’s Adventure Time game and extend it across all consoles, as well as introduce our first-ever Regular Show game and continue the global excitement around an all-new Ben 10 game.”
