Cartoon Network is bringing its IPs into the online world with its own MMO title. Developed by Seoul-based Grigon Entertainment (Seal Online
), the game is confirmed to feature characters from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Ben 10,
and Kids Next Door
. The game will be free to download, but subscriptions and micro-transactions will be "available to players to enhance the gaming experience." Cartoon Network will launch the title, it hopes, in Spring of 2008.
This deal is smart for both companies: Cartoon Network gets an established developer to create a franchise title that may actually be fun, while Grigon Entertainment will get some exposure in the United States -- a market in which Grigon currently has no presence.
If this works out, how about someone make an Adult Swim MMOG? It'd be great, where you could make your own food-related
avatar and have Brock
teach you 3 million ways to kill a 12 oz. mouse
