D3Publisher and Cartoon Network Announce New Video Games for Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Ben 10 for Fall 2013

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--D3Publisher (D3P) and Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) today announced the development of three new video games based on the most popular Cartoon Network award-winning animated shows. This fall, video games based on Cartoon Network’s highest-rated shows Adventure Time and Ben 10 Omniverse will launch, as well as the first video game for one of Cartoon Network’s top series, Regular Show.

Following the mathematical success of the IGN Editors’ Choice Award-winning Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!, show creator 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 PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC, as well as a return to the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system this fall. In a completely new storyline and adventure and featuring the voices of the show’s most popular characters, fans will have to save the Candy Kingdom by exploring the mysteries surrounding a massive Secret Royal Dungeon deep below the Land of Ooo. 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 Adventure Time world comes to life. Adventure Time is the pop culture sensation, Emmy® Award-nominated, top-rated animated comedy, and its popularity continues to soar across the globe among fans of all ages.

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 Emmy® Award-winning animated comedy to Nintendo 3DS this fall. Regular Show is the Cartoon Network series starring best friends Mordecai and Rigby and their adventures as groundskeepers of the local park. When 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 JG 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. Ben 10 Omniverse 2 will be available this fall for the Wii U system, the Wii™ system, the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, Xbox 360, and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

“We are excited to extend our partnership with Cartoon Network on the next iteration of Adventure Time and Ben 10 video games and we now have the opportunity to introduce the very first Regular Show video game to the millions of fans that watch the Emmy winning comedy each week,” said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. “Having the creative talents of these widely popular animated shows working directly with very proven development teams, it has given us the recipe to create the very best and most authentic video game experiences that will please fans of all ages.”

“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.”

These video games are currently rated “RP” (Rating Pending) by the ESRB and for more information in the coming months about these titles, please visit D3Publisher at www.d3publisher.us.

Looks like a pattern. Bring out for 3DS. If successful, release sequel on home consoles.

If it means more quality 3DS games as tests, and the sequels are still on 3DS as well, I don't see why it matters, really.

Glad the new AT is hitting the 360 as well, my best friend played and loved it on the DS but doesn't have a 3DS yet so at least she'll be able to play it on something else.
