Cartoon Network Enterprises has teamed up with D3Publisher for video games based on its animated comedy “Regular Show.”
This is the first video game deal for the Emmy Award-winning series, now in its fourth season.
“As a brand, ‘Regular Show’ is tailor-made for an interactive release, with main characters who spend their time slacking off, playing video games or involved in hijinks that are certainly worthy of being in a game,” says Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products, North America, CNE. “With a show creator who loves games working closely with a partner that has proven success creating high-quality licensed titles, we’re excited to release our first Regular Show game later this year.”
The new collaboration extends the two companies’ already existing partnership which includes the Ben 10 interactive franchise and last year’s Nintendo DS and 3DS release, “Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!.”
“We’re incredibly happy to continue our partnership with Cartoon Network to bring one of its most popular shows, ‘Regular Show,’ to the digital world,” says Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. “With this collaboration with Cartoon Network, J.G. Quintel and the creative team behind ‘Regular Show,’ the prospect of producing a new game that captures all of the humor and charm of this superb cartoon series is definitely quite exciting.”
“Regular Show” follows best friends Mordecai and Rigby and their adventures as groundskeepers of the local park.
