Little Orbit has announced plans to bring Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom to Nintendo 3DS this November. WayForward will once again be handling development, bringing its total number of games featuring the Adventure Time property to three.

The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom features a "classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving element" that brings to mind the earlier titles' many Zelda-inspired mechanics. The story finds players once again taking control of Jake the Dog and Finn the Human as they navigate the eponymous region, a mysterious and uncharted territory in the Land of Ooo featuring all-new (and undoubtedly quirky) characters.

WayForward's Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?, which saw a dual release both on DS and 3DS in 2012, was a surprising critical success for a licensed game based on a television show. On the other hand, last year's equally awkwardly titled Wii U & 3DS iteration Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know! was less celebrated on the Nintendo Life front.

Are you optimistic about the future of the series under developer WayForward? Will you be grabbing your friends to go to very distant lands when the game launches later this year?
