In March we told you that cult-favourite animated series Adventure Time was coming to DS, as confirmed by tweeting creator Pendleton Ward. He said he was looking forward to working closely with Wayforward Technologies, a developer with an excellent track record on the system; suddenly DS became a lot cooler in its old age.
The good news is that D3Publisher has now officially confirmed the release, which will be called Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?!, of course. With a 'late fall' arrival promised, we'll let the press release below get you nice and excited.
Ready for a mathematical, algebraic, radical time? D3Publisher (D3P), a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software, and Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) today officially announced the upcoming release of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!, a video game based on the popular Cartoon Network series, Adventure Time. This is the first Adventure Time video game that will release on the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and Nintendo DS™ hand-held system late fall.
In the first licensed Adventure Time video game, Finn and Jake wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King. Jake couldn’t care less about half-eaten bananas, crumpled up burrito wrappers, and old chicken diapers – but when they find out the Ice King is using their stolen goods to construct a Garbage Princess, the heroes embark on a fantastical adventure to teach him a lesson! Journey through the Land of Ooo in an offbeat adventure and discover perilous dungeons and unimaginable treasures, while playing as Finn and Jake in a unique action-adventure experience.
Working alongside the game’s developer WayForward is the series’ creator Pendleton Ward, who is designing a new storyline and quests for the game.
“Adventure Time fans have been asking for a video game to complement the series for some time, and we are working directly with Pendelton Ward, who has an amazing vision for the game,” said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. “Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?! will be a fan’s golden ticket into the elusive Adventure Time universe and will capture the random fun and adventure we all love about the series.”
