Adventure Time is Coming to DS

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Life in the old dog yet

Just as the 3DS seems to be taking over from its predecessor, the DS reminds us all of its existence with an intriguing title on the horizon. Though not quite on the same scale as the announcement of Pokémon Black and White 2, confirmation of a game based on cult-favourite animated series Adventure Time, to be developed by Wayforward Technologies, is still good news for those attached to their older handheld.

Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward made the announcement on his Twitter page, confirming that he'd work closely with the developers. Wayforward has a good record on DS, with retail titles such as Contra 4 and Aliens: Infestation being high-quality examples, and solid games also appearing on DSiWare.

We suspect that the combination of Adventure Time and DS could work rather well, especially with the right people involved: it's worth keeping an eye on this one.

Adventure Time is awesome, but I have doubts about Cartoon Network games, especially on the DS instead of the 3DS.

If this turns out to be great I would not stop playing as I watch the show (Jake & Princess Bubblegum should get married :3).

You know, when I saw the headline, I got excited because Adventure Time is awesome. But then I got sad because Cartoon Network games suck. But then I got happy again because WayFoward is developing it! :D

WayForward makes excellent original games, but the licensed games they make are just shovelware.

Come on and grab your friends! We'll go to very distant lands!

Games based on cartoons tend to be kind of terrible. But I'm gonna be optimistic about this one, because there's just something special about Adventure Time that seems like it'd make a great game.

On another note, I hope it's not just some generic platformer. I have a Spongebob game on the GBA that's pretty much a generic platformer, and that kind of stuff always feels like a cash-in for fans of the show.
This game needs to be an ACTION-ADVENTURE! With Dungeons! Chambers! Evil creatures! Treasure chests! Doorways! Traps! I'd be in my elemeeent!

Also needs minigames you can play on Beemo.

Weird. I thought Pendleton Ward said the Adventure Time game was for the 3DS.

ALGEBRAIC!
I love the show's pacing and zany adventure plots. If the game manages to do the same, it will be worth playing. Bonus points for Wayforward development.

Let's not forget that WayForward has blown some golden opportunities. How about Batman the Brave and the Bold being too easy, too short, and too slow? I suspect similar results for another game based off of a cartoon.
