[Update][Exclusive] Previously Untitled Cartoon Network Game Will Be Called Cartoon Network Supertoon Rumble, Timed Nintendo 3DS Exclusive
Back in October of last year we posted an article about a game being developed by Crave Games that was at the time unnamed but would feature several Cartoon Network characters, we now know not only what that game is but tons of details about it. We now have on good authority that the game will be called Cartoon Network Rumble and will in fact be coming to the Nintendo 3DS as a timed exclusive launch title releasing sometime in the Spring, followed sometime after that with the console versions for the PS3 and 360. The premise of the game is that some kind of weird forces are at work causing the worlds of the 11 most popular Cartoon Networks shows to collide. From their all you know what breaks loose and now you must battle against some Cartoon Network’s most prolific characters.
The shows to be featured are Ben 10 Ultimate Alien, The PowerPuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Codename: Kids Next Door, Chowder, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. You will also be able to unlock Johnny Bravo and Captain Planet. From across the shows mentioned above the game will have 34 playable characters with 20 Battle Arenas and 31 levels to tackle. The game will feature 8 game modes including Rumble, Story and Tournament. There will also be a dedicated site set up just for the game where players will find ton’s of info including screenshots, news, and trailers.
Remember where you heard it first. That’s all for now but as we understand it you will be hearing much more info about this game in the coming months. We are excited to see where this title can go, as a fighting game it just might work, what do you think?
Update: In case you didn’t believe us though with this much detail how couldn’t you? Anyway, it seems that the game’s name has been updated to “Cartoon Network Supertoon Rumble”, but its the same game. Check the Kotaku post, look at June 1st in their list. We have also found that Gamestop now has a placeholder up on its site for the game which will retail for $39.99. Remember where you heard it first.
