D3Publisher of America Announces Ben 10:
Protector of Earth

D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA) announced
today that it will bring Cartoon Network’s hit original series Ben 10 to video
game systems for the first time this fall with Ben 10: Protector of Earth for
the Wii home video game system, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and PSP. In Ben 10:
Protector of Earth, players take on the role of Cartoon Network’s popular
everyday-kid-turned-superhero, Ben Tennyson. Using the power of the Omnitrix
which has embedded itself on Ben’s wrist, players will be able to battle as one
of five popular alien heroes from the show – soon to be revealed! By taking on
these amazing powers, players can save the world through the game’s diverse
challenges, puzzles and skirmishes.

“Ben 10: Protector of Earth authentically
portrays characters from the hit animated series including Ben, Gwen and Grandpa
Max, evil Kevin 11, the Forever Knights and even Ben’s arch-enemy Vilgax,” said
Careen Yapp, vice president of licensing and business development for D3PA. “The
Omnitrix’s most popular alien heroes will be accessible as playable characters,
and a familiar summer vacation storyline including all-new locations and content
for players will immerse gamers in Ben’s world like never before!”

“Taking the action-packed world of Ben 10 to the
next level and creating an immersive gaming experience for our fans is really
exciting for us,” said Christina Miller, vice president of Consumer Products for
Cartoon Network Enterprises. “D3PA has a proven talent for turning Cartoon
Network’s popular characters into authentic and well-designed video games. The
variety of powerful action play in Ben 10: Protector of Earth will engage
players of all levels and keep them coming back.”

At first glance, 10-year-old Ben looks like your
average, everyday kid, but upon closer inspection it’s plain to see he’s the
world’s youngest action hero stopping evildoers from Earth and space! With the
help of the Omnitrix, Ben can transform into heroic alien forms with
extraordinary powers. The evil Vilgax, with the help of Kevin 11 and the Forever
Knights, has set in motion a plan to capture the Omnitrix and the world is in
danger…Ben 10: Protector of Earth is an exciting game full of familiar
characters on a quest to stop Vilgax and save the day!

Ben 10: Protector of Earth for Nintendo DS is
under development by 1st Playable Productions, LLC. All other versions are under
development by High Voltage Software, Inc. The game is currently rated “RP”
(“Rating Pending”) by the ESRB and is slated for release in Fall of 2007.

The Emmy®-winning Ben 10 on Cartoon Network has a
devoted fan base with over five million boys tuning in each month over the
summer and millions more logging on to play Ben 10 games online. Building on
that momentum, the network has also announced two long form movies for the show
which will debut later this year.

The series has also been doing well at retail
with a top-selling, award-winning toy line and numerous deals in place for
consumer products including sporting goods, apparel and home furnishings.
