Cartoon Network and D3Publisher are teaming up for multiplatform titles this fall based on three of the television channel's top animated shows, Adventure Time, Regular Show and Ben 10: Omniverse, the publisher announced today.
The companies announced last month that they were producing a Regular Show game, the first video game based on the surreal series. Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land, which is in development at WayForward Technologies and is set for release on Nintendo 3DS this fall, transports the titular groundskeepers into old-school video games that they have to make their way through. According to a press release from D3Publisher, WayForward is working "in close collaboration" with J.G. Quintel, the series' creator.
D3Publisher is teaming up with WayForward again for their second Adventure Time video game, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know!. The companies released Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! on 3DS last November, and the follow-up is coming this fall to 3DS, as well as Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Wii U.
Explore the Dungeon players can choose to step into the roles of characters such as Finn, Jake, Marceline and Cinnamon Bun — the game will support four-player co-op — as they attempt to save the Candy Kingdom by exploring the Secret Royal Dungeon underneath the Land of Ooo.
Ben 10: Omniverse, the kid-oriented sci-fi series that premiered on Cartoon Network last September, will get its second game this fall. Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is set for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii and 3DS. The handheld version is being developed by 1st Playable Productions, the studio behind the 3DS and Nintendo DS versions of last November's Ben 10: Omniverse; the console version is being made by The Conduit developer High Voltage Software. In this year's adventure, Ben will take on new enemies, the Incurseans, in action sequences like chases and escapes as he makes his way into the Incursean warship.
"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," said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development at D3Publisher, in the press release.
