Ben 10 Omniverse game to mesh with ‘new look’ of the cartoon

D3Publisher has done an excellent job of crafting the Cartoon Network‘s franchise BEN 10 into multiple games over the past few years and this holiday season we’ll have a new installment called BEN 10 OMNIVERSE.

Ben 10 Omniverse was playable on the E3 Expo 2012 floor and we had a chance to get some hands-on time with the game.  Omniverse plays much like a standard co-op brawler in the style of an X-Men Legends or Skylanders game.  You can play as either Ben 10 or new sidekick Rook.

Probably the ‘biggest’ news about the game and somewhat controversial to hardcore fans of Ben 10 is the ‘new look’ art style of the franchise.  Ben 10 Omniverse game developers are changing with the times along with the actual cartoon to mesh with Cartoon Network’s new dramatic ‘look’ of Ben 10 and his friends.

Most comments we’ve seen on Ben 10 forums (like Toonbarn) and even thus far on the new trailer express ‘rage’ and ‘hate’ on the new look of the Ben 10 show – putting D3Publisher in a tight spot.  The new art style will be dramatically different and less ‘realistic’ (in a cartoon way) with harder edges, skinny bodys and big heads.

We’ll be curious to see how fans of the cartoon show adapt to the new look (or not) but bravo to D3Publishers for taking bold steps to move with the times and stay faithful to the brand and franchise.

The new Ben 10 Omniverse series comes out on the Cartoon Network in the fall and the video game will coincide with the release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U.
