Gamania Digital Entertainment has announced the upcoming closed beta of a new MMO for the younger set: Hero:108. This new MMO, set to enter closed beta in May, is based on a Cartoon Network series of the same name.

Gamania COO Davig Wong hopes that Hero:108 will server as an introduction for the next round of up-and-coming MMO fans: "This teen-centric free-to-play online video game was developed to ease young gamers graduating from casual games into the exciting world of MMOs."

The game is described as part of a "cross-platform" collaboration between Gamania, Cartoon Network, Moonscoop Entertainment, and Playmates Toys, so besides the television show and MMO, you'll be seeing a line of products including collectible toys in the near future.

For now, however, their focus is on the MMO. If you're interested in giving it a look for yourself, you're in luck. Gamania has arranged for a beta key giveaway, and it's as simple as visiting their site to sign up. While we don't have a specific date for the beginning of closed beta yet, May is just a few days away so it's bound to be soon.
