Punch Time Explosion, a game coming out for the Nintendo 3DS, is a Super Smash Bros. style brawler, except it features prominent Cartoon Network characters. No, sadly, not ones from Adult Swim. This isn’t the first time Cartoon Network has made a mashup game featuring various characters from their universe (see: FusionFall), but Punch Time Explosion is most likely more accessible, considering it’ll be on a Nintendo handheld and the Smash Bros. gameplay is designed to be simple.
At the moment, the only trailers available are a few character profiles, one of which can be seen above, mainly because Bubbles is adorable. Other fighters featured in the game include characters from The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Chowder, Ben 10, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. There are also supposedly assist characters in the game, and the full fighters list doesn’t seemed sussed out, so no reason to worry that your favorite (or more obvious) character hasn’t made the roster as of yet.
Here’s hoping that Punch Time Explosion receives a WCW vs. NWO style sequel where the Adult Swim characters invade and fight the Cartoon Network guys.
