Pendleton Ward draws out his enthusiasm for the project

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.
