Toon Cup Mobile Game announced
The game will be launched under the Cartoon Network Toon Cup brand and is expected to be available in all European markets in May 2010 to coincide with the start of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Toon Cup will feature well-known characters including Ben 10, Chowder, Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls, and Zak from The Secret Saturdays, all acting as team leaders playing hard to win the trophy. This is the first time a mobile game will include a combination of Cartoon Network characters in one game.
It's an action packed 5-aside football mobile game which will include all sorts of special power ups, hazards and helpers. The game play has been designed to be fast and smooth, while keeping controls simple and direct to optimize the overall experience. Toon Cup is a high quality title which will be supported by a wide range of J2ME enabled handsets on its release.
"The Toon Cup mobile game is a fun and playful take on the football game genre with exciting features that adds a lot of fun and mischief to football. As a player you will be able to join favourite Cartoon Network characters in a different kind of football game than you are normally used to. It will simply give more action, new challenges and a different experience" says Marcus Johansson, CEO GlobalFun.
Joe Braman, Commercial Director Mobile, DVD and Digital at Turner CN Enterprises said "We are delighted to be launching this new mobile game together with GlobalFun in the run up to this year's World Cup. Bringing a host of Cartoon Network characters together in one game for the first time is a fantastic way of celebrating the competition, and also broadens the appeal of the game to a wide range of fans." ♠ JC
