D3Publisher announced that multiplatform action-platformer Ben 10: Protector of Earth
sold over 2.5 million units worldwide since the game's release in late October, 2007.
Based on the Ben 10 Cartoon Network series, Protector of Earth
was released for Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS, with 1st Playable Productions developing the DS version and High Voltage Software behind the other three releases.
In the game, players follow the animated show's star Ben Tennyson as he uses the alien Omnitrix device attached to his wrist, using super powers and changing into alien forms to take on puzzles, challenges, and skirmishes.
D3P also recently released a follow-up, Ben 10: Alien Force
, based on the new Ben 10 show that takes place five years after the original. The sequel was shipped to stores in late October for Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS.
"Having our first-ever Ben 10 interactive game be as successful as it has is a huge accomplishment for us and this is another milestone of which we're very proud," says Cartoon Network Enterprises' vice president Christina Miller. "We look forward to continued success as we build the brand's interactive franchise with a great partner in D3."
