TURNER CN ENTERPRISES AND D3Publisher TO LAUNCH THE ALL new ‘ben 10 OMNIVERSE 2’ Video Game THIS AUTUMN 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PARIS, FRANCE – May 14 th 2013, Turner CN Enterprises and D3Publisher (D3P), a subsidiary of NAMCO BANDAI Games, Inc., today announced the development of Ben 10 Omniverse 2 , the new video game based on Cartoon Network’s award-winning kids’ action phenomenon, Ben 10.

In Ben 10 Omniverse 2 , players will be able to control Ben Tennyson in an all new adventure set in Ben’s universe as he battles a new foe, the Incurseans, and infiltrates the enemy’s intergalactic warship while he finds his way home.  Still armed with his trusty Omnitrix, Ben will face brand new challenges including chase and escape sequences as well as constant battles against the forces of evil.  Players will have to make every action count as they race Ben against the clock, creating the most kinetic Ben 10 game to-date. 

Developed by High Voltage Software for consoles, and by 1 st Playable Productions for the handheld version, Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is based on the popular Cartoon Network animated series, and follows the adventures of Ben Tennyson, a teenager who wields the Omnitrix – a device that allows him to transform into various alien forms such as Gravattack, Four Arms, and many more alien forms. 

“The Ben 10 franchise has proven to be a phenomenal success for many years now, and we are of course delighted to extend our partnership with Turner on this brand new adventure” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe. “This autumn, we will be very pleased to let players enjoy an exciting gameplay in Ben 10 Omniverse 2 , the new video-game based on the latest Ben 10: Omniverse animated series.”
