Ben 10 and Friends Join Wii U Line-Up

Posted by James Newton

The Wii U announcements are coming thick and fast these days. Last week it was Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth and Cloudberry Kingdom; this week it's Ben 10: Omniverse.

D3Publisher's next outing for the boy with multiple personalities will reach every current Nintendo format later this year, with development on the home console versions headed up by Matt Hazard studio Vicious Cycle.

As you'd probably expect it's an action brawler kind of deal, with 13 playable alien forms and two-player co-operative modes, which could make interesting use of Wii U's controller set-up.

It's not out until the fall but, then again, neither is Wii U.

MEDIA ALERT

Journey Through Time as Young and Teen Ben in Ben 10: Omniverse™, the First Game Based on the Highly Anticipated Cartoon Network Series

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. 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 Wii U™ system from Nintendo, the Wii™ system from Nintendo, Xbox 360® video 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 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 Vicious Cycle Studios for all platforms except for Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS, which are being developed by 1st Playable Productions. The game is currently rated “RP” (“Rating Pending”) by the ESRB. For more information in the coming months, please visit www.d3publisher.us.

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.

What the hell is wrong with that drawing? it looks absolutely atrocious,i stopped watching Ben 10 after Alien Force ended and i'll start watching Ultimate Alien soon(especially since i've heard it's more serious than the other two).

But this is just painful,just looking at that picture,what is wrong with Teen Ben? he looks like a generic anime character.

Even though i am a fan of the other shows i'll probably skip this unless the game looks better and obviously the gameplay is better.

The new art style is meant to mirror the latest Ben 10 series, yes a new one is starting soon. I agree that it looks off, it's still better looking than that awful CG movie. I'm a sucker for Ben 10, so I'm sure I'll pick this up eventually.

I like Ben 10 cartoon. I think it will be neat and fun to change into different aliens with different powers. :)

Good grief.

When I read the headline, I was hoping for a MMORPG in the style of FusionFall, but my hopes have been shattered

=/ ive seen more than enough cartoonetwork games to see where this is goin. I bet this game is going to fall hard on its face.Yet somewhere out there,you know a whole bunch of kids are getting there parents to buy these games because CN never stops making games no matter how horrible they are. The one and only CN game i found slightly enjoyable was billy and mandy for wii.And even that game wasnt original. It was a complete knock off of power stone.

Ben 10 was the reason I started to wonder: "What's happening to cartoon network?"

And the fact that it's also coming to the normal DS is making me think the wii U version will be worse.
