Today, D3 and Cartoon Network have announced they will be partnering up to publish three new games, one for three of their most popular franchises.
The first is a new Adventure Time titled: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know! being developed by the good folks who made the first Adventure Time title, Wayforward Technologies. The title will include 4-player co-op and is in development for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
Next up is a sequel to Ben 10: Omniverse called Ben 10: Omniverse 2. The 3DS developer is the same as before, 1st Playable Productions, while High Voltage Software are working on the console release for Wii, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Finally, the Regular Show is getting its very first title with Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land on the 3DS which like the new Adventure Time title, is being developed by Wayforward. It promises to be a retro-throwback and compilation of some sort, with Mordecai and Rigby exploring their favorite 8-bit titles.
Speaking as someone who's not a fan of Adventure Time (I do recommend you give it one viewing at least), despises Ben 10 and has not for the life of me taken a look at the Regular Show, I can say that this is good news indeed, namely for Regular Show fans, Adventure Time enthusiasts and those who enjoyed Ben 10: Omniverse. After all, Adventure Time: HIKWYSOG?! was rather enjoyable for the Nintendo 3DS. While it was a short title, it was very sweet, essentially a modern Zelda II done right with an excellent soundtrack. With Wayforward making not only a sequel to this but also a title for Regular Show, a re-release of the original Shantae and remake of DuckTales, a sequel to Risky's Revenge and Mighty Switch Force!, (the latter of which is now complete) this year can officially be declared the year of Wayforward.
Sorry Luigi, they just out-titled you.
Also, if you need a reason to go out and get Adventure Time: Hey Ice King Why's The Title So Damn Long?!, take it from someone who's a non-fan:
