D3Publisher and Cartoon Network have announced in a joint press release that they are working with developer WayForward on a second Adventure Time game, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!
As well as having one of the most ridiculous titles we’ve seen, Adventure Time 2 (yeah, I’m not typing the full name out every time) should. at the very least, offer a very funny, well written adventure.
To those unfamiliar with the show, Adventure Time is an animated comedy series following the adventures of 14-year-old Finn and his magic talking dog, Jake. The show is designed to be enjoyed by children and adults, and takes place in a weird, fantastical, occasionally dark world. Oh, and it can be bloody hilarious. Here’s a clip that showcases the kind of humour to be expected in Adventure Time 2.
Adventure Time 2 will have a multitude of playable characters, featuring Finn, Jake and others from the supporting cast. As well as a single-player mode in which the Candy Kingdom needs saving, Adventure Time 2 will feature four-player co-operative mode.
Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!! (the first, also ludicrously titled game) was released exclusively for the Nintendo DS/3DS, making Adventure Time 2 the first in the series released for PC and home consoles. Adventure Time 2 has been given a rough release date of Autumn 2013.
