Ben is back for more

Ben 10: Omniverse was a Wii U launch title and it appears to have done well enough as a sequel will be coming later this year, courtesy of D3Publsiher and Cartoon Network. The original was also on Wii and 3DS and both these platforms are being supported again.

Appropriately titled Ben 10: Omniverse 2, this adventure game sees you embark on a new quest with young Ben and his Omnitrix-powered alien forms. It looks as though the galaxy is under threat once again, with the Incurseans, led by their Emperor Mileous, looking to take over.

As Hollywood movies have taught us, armies are completely useless in these situations, but thankfully Ben and his partner Azmuth are around to fend off this new intergalactic baddie. This edition features some new challenges such as chase and escape sequences and an open-ended combo-based combat system, which sounds interesting.

The home console versions of the game allow you to fight with ten alien forms, while there are 17 on the 3DS. Characters include Big Chill, Bullfrag, Rath, and Eatle, with each of them having their own role in combat and platforming.

Ben 10: Omniverse 2 is scheduled to be released in the Fall of this year. It featured at this year's San Diego Comic-Con where a lovely new trailer emerged - you can see it below.

The original title was also available on the DS, however this time around it's not being supported, which may be disappointing for some. You can see what we thought to the Wii U version in our Ben 10: Omniverse review.
