New Adventure Time Game Coming to Wii U and 3DS This Fall

Wacky subtitle included, of course
Adventure Time is going to get mathematical in the gaming world again this Fall, and this time it'll be called Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW!; once again it'll be one of the coolest game names to be found. Just last November North American gamers could enjoy Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! on 3DS and DS, but this new title's keeping up with the times, arriving on both Wii U and 3DS (as well as Xbox 360, PS3 and PC).
Announced by D3Publisher and Cartoon Network via a press release, it's confirmed that WayForward Technologies will once again be picking up development duties while working with show creator Pendleton Ward. It's described as an action game that'll include four player co-op.
In a completely new storyline and adventure and featuring the voices of the show’s most popular characters, fans will have to save the Candy Kingdom by exploring the mysteries surrounding a massive Secret Royal Dungeon deep below the Land of Ooo. Select from an assortment of fan-favorite characters from the show, including Finn, Jake, Marceline, Cinnamon Bun, and more, and team up with your friends in four-player co-operative multiplayer as the Adventure Time world comes to life.
There are few details beyond that, while it's unclear whether the 3DS title will be similar to the home console equivalents, or if it'll have its own style. We quite liked the first game in our Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! DS review, and we have no doubt fans of the series will be keen to try this one out; Europeans will be hoping that this new entry will do what the original couldn't and make it outside of North America.
Not much info yet, but it's a new Adventure Time game this year. Surely that's enough?
