Lost Media FOUND: Unused Ben 10 MMO Game Info!



are you I come on you so you've probably heard a Fusion fall before right the massive Cartoon Network MMO that crossed over basically every relevant show at the time in an anime inspired style that ran from 2009 to 2013 well you heard of it now Fusion fall was a fairly ambitious move for Cartoon Network compared to Disney's toontown and Nickelodeon stick propolis this popular multiplayer RPG took the most steps in the right direction the gameplay is very smooth and easy to learn but a no means too easy and the mountains of lore that follows only makes the game even more captivating with higher stakes fighting alongside your favorite cartoon characters but as with many projects like this of you behind the scenes escapades caused it to have quite a few changes in its development both before and after it launched the two major turning points and fusion fall that we're gonna talk about today happened just as fusion fall was about to launch and then a few years later when a major expansion to the game was planned there's a really good video by Robo cast that I recommend to get a much more detailed narrative on exactly how fusion fall rose and fell but in this video we're gonna talk about a lot of the scrapped content that has been lost to the public for nearly a decade the franchise affected by these changes the most just so happens to be the series I'd call myself an expert on which is Fenton Benton was cartoon network's poster child for the back half of the 2000s receiving spongebob levels of admiration and promotion for the CNN executives so a lot of potential Benton content in this game was developed altered or flat-out scrapped from the game some of you may have already seen a few screenshots from some of this lost content but the incredible team over at fusion fall universe was able to provide me with more detailed information along with some never-before-seen content artwork and concepts for the game I'm Cara the artist and I'm gonna break down all of the unused to Benton content from Fusion fall the official announcement for Fusion fall was back in 2006 and at the time Benton Classic was still going strong fusion vault took many elements from this iteration of the show during its development however by the time Fusion Falls actual released in 2009 Benton classic had transitioned itself into the sequel series set five years after the original titled Ben 10 alien force for most development companies the game would have been way too far into production to change everything over from classic to alien force and in some parts of the game this factory is true but grog on entertainment the original developers for fusion fall made the extra effort anyways to change as many classic Ben 10 elements to alien force as they could the things they couldn't change were either left alone or cut from the game entirely the first major change of note were the nanos in the game small chibi style characters that follow alongside and aid the player with special abilities after you defeat their evil fusion counterparts meant to be used solely for the development team to test their nano mechanics was the classic Ben Tennyson nano this nano included the mechanic to help the user jump Heights the player could not normally achieve it's assumed that this nano was being developed just as alien force was gearing into production as this nano was actually voiced by Yuri Lowenthal doing an impression of young Ben rather than Terra strong the original voice of young Ben I'll play some of his original audio for you along with young Ben our nanos for a Ghostfreak and upgrade both of which have completed models and animations but were additionally cut from the game nanos for forearms Vilgax and hex were also developed and used in the full games release but they were not updated for alien force and still retained their original appearance a nose for swamp fire and Humungousaur were added on instead to represent the current state of benton full artwork for the main trio Ben Gwen and Grandpa Max were also created new artwork was created for Ben and Gwen and additionally Kevin when the game was rebranding to alien force but max remained the same full models for the classic version of these characters were developed and can be shown here alongside with a few icons and this concept sketch of mutated Kevin 11 in the final game you can still find many of these characters and their classic appearances although the main heroes did indeed get an alien force make over a few story elements were also changed to accommodate alien force at the start of the game the players give it an option to select one of four guides to help them through the game Grandpa Max was intended to be one of these guides but was eventually switched out for teenage Ben there was also a deleted character trait of young Ben who would supposedly have a crush on kids next door operative number 5 the remains of this idea exist at the start of the game as teenage Ben and number 5 are the two characters that fill the player in once the game is started concepts for various Ben 10 themed weapons were also developed such as a null void projector and one of the bounty hunters six sixes many alien gadgets the mask of aku was also considered from the classic episode ultimate weapon the prequel tie-in comic depicting the events that lead up to the game's main plot also uses young Ben showcasing his aliens like forearms and upgrade both in which were planned to be nanos for the game with the official release of fusion fall critics praised the game for its unique art style and fun mechanics updates were produced regularly every three weeks giving the community something consistent to look forward to as fusion fall continued to grow Greg on entertainment became more ambitious planning to release a massive expansion update which would introduce many new in-game elements to the players unfortunately popularity doesn't mean profitable and grog on entertainment eventually went bankrupt and production on the expansion was shut down Cartoon Network wasn't asked with maintaining the game on their own doing their best to keep the game of float but many expansion elements were lost during the transition for starters there was a poll to vote on which of ends transformations to make into a new nano to let the fans feel more interactive with the choices the developers make obviously a lean x1 so an alien X nano was developed and scheduled to release with this expansion this nano is the only one that survived the authoritative transition and still became playable in game other nanos that were developed by Cartoon Network were way big an ultimate Big Chill although they are not obtainable and only make cameos in the training area new armor sets including the alien force updated Vilgax armor and some Petrov sapien garments were created and intended to use for the expansion although when unused many other areas of Cartoon Network had planned expansions as well Tom from Toonami was going to be a character and a ship the absolution was going to be an area in the game the expansion was mostly based around a region called the way blue sea and contained areas like the Stormalong Harbor and monster island Tom ship was going to be crashed into the ocean and taking on water as seen in this concept art however after grog on stepped down and Cartoon Network took a hold of fusion falls production many changes were made to the game this was dubbed the new beginnings update the game became free-to-play entirely while before you can only make it to level 4 before having to purchase a monthly subscription to continue playing there was also a new training mode to help integrate newer players into the game but this was widely disliked by veteran Fusion fall fans although admittedly Cartoon Network did make an effort to keep fusion fall alive with its updates such as adding in the null avoid and eventually updating vilgax's appearance to his alien force attire with Ben 10 Ultimate Alien at its peak CN also began releasing new items with every episode these were obtainable by entering special codes that were showcased during the episodes air time new nanos were also implemented to keep the game fresh such as amphibian and Wrath but these were haphazardly put together based on models from other Ben 10 games over time updates became far fewer between until fusion fault met its end in 2013 a spiritual successor Fusion fall Heroes was made but let's just not talk about that one Fusion fall was just short of being one of the greatest MMOs available for kids and teams it's unfortunate that many Cartoon Network fans missed out on the experience be it not wanting to pay for membership having a super slow computer at the time like myself or just simply not being born yet luckily a group of very talented fans have come together to bring the thrills of fusion fall back to life Fusion fall legacy will be a complete rebuild of the entire game from the ground up along with adding many a modern character and franchise from what is popular in Cartoon Network today Ben 10 will also be getting another rebrand in this update freshening up himself with his Ben 10 omniverse appearance Fusion fall legacy is currently still in development and the team are not releasing any public updates but for now they have restored the original fusion fall game to its glory now titled fusion fall retro which you can play in its entirety for free right now online with your friends but if playing an old game for nostalgia steak is an exactly earthing fusion fall retro is much more than that the developers plan to continue to update many of the games mechanics and story lost during Dragon entertainments departure and restore much of this lost or unused media in fact at the time of this upload they just released a huge Benton themed update over 20 new missions are added to the game along with new characters and a new story line featuring albedo but I don't want to spoil everything in this video many elements had to be created from scratch for example this spider monkey was modeled animated and programmed completely from the ground by the fusion fall universe team only experiencing this game yourself can do justice to the amount of work put into this update and the fusion fall retro project in general so register an account and join the fight against the evil planet fusion you might even run into an ink tank member or two online taking part in the battle as many of you know the ink tank and I have our own revival project involving Ben 10 titled 5 years later and during this fusion fall retro update you can now obtain 5yl Ben's entire outfit to wear on your very own fusion fall character to get this outfit you need to defeat a boss that's a pretty high level level 36 yeesh but if you act quickly you can wear the outfit for free as soon as you join the game by putting on your holo suit the holo suit is a special outfit that changes appearance with every update to help showcase new elements in the game the holo suit will inevitably change again when a new update comes along but for now you can use it to experience 5yl Ben's fashion sense but after the holo suit changes you're gonna have to do some XP grinding to look like our future Omnitrix warrior if you guys continue to support fusion fall there will be more collaborations in the future meaning more 5yl items and costume possibilities to be added to the game to support this we will be opening up a chat room in our own discord server dedicated to fusion fall so join in and stay connected but for now thanks for watching this video shout out to the fusion fall universe team with providing me with all of this
