LYON, FRANCE – 15 May 2012 – D3Publisher (D3P) and Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) today announced that they will bring Ben 10: Omniverse™, the first video game based on the highly-anticipated, brand new animated series of the same name, to store shelves this fall, distributed by NAMCO BANDAI Games S.A.S. across EMEA and Asia Pacific. The series will introduce fans to an entirely different Ben 10 experience through an all-new character design that pays homage to Ben’s past and a fresh batch of aliens to battle. Ben 10: Omniverse will also mark the debut of Ben’s new sidekick Rook, a skilled but inexperienced Plumber graduate. The Ben 10: Omniverse interactive game from D3Publisher will release on the upcoming WiiU™ system from Nintendo, the Wii™ system from Nintendo, Xbox 360® game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and Nintendo DS™ hand-held system.
In Ben: 10 Omniverse, players will be immersed in exciting action-brawler gameplay featuring the new art style inspired from the show. Gamers will have the power to switch forms and battle as one of 13 playable alien heroes, including never-before-seen aliens like Bloxx and Gravattack, as they work with either Ben or Rook to defeat the evil plans of a fierce villain, intent on destroying the world.
Ben 10: Omniverse gives fans the option to play single-player or two-player co-op mode (for all platforms except the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS), where one player controls Ben and his alien forms and the other can play as Rook with his Proto-Tool, a high-tech multifunction weapon designed to battle evil.
Ben 10: Omniverse is being developed by Monkey Bar Games for all platforms except for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS, which are being developed by 1st Playable Productions. The Ben 10: Omniverse television series is produced at Cartoon Network Studios with Matt Youngberg as supervising producer. The series will premiere on Cartoon Network this fall.
