We’re Getting Another Adventure Time Game, And Not Just On The 3DS

We’re Getting Another Adventure Time Game, And Not Just On The 3DS

Oh, joy joy joy! WayForward and D3Publishers are teaming up with Adventure Time writer Pen Ward again for a second Adventure Time game, the companies announced today in a press release. That image here of Finn? That pretty much explains how I feel about this. (Minus the punchiness.)

I quite enjoyed the first 3DS/DS Adventure Time game WayForward/D3 released last year, and I’m very happy to see it return to the 3DS, as well as make a debut on the 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. One of the few qualms I had with the otherwise delightful adventure game based on one of my favourite shows was that it leaned more towards the kid-game spectrum. Which was to be expected, and it didn’t make for a bad game by any means. It just meant I could tell it wasn’t made with me — a freakish Adventure Time fan and self-described adult — in mind. That they’re bringing it to all the major (current) consoles means they’re likely taking this thing more seriously. Or, at least, as serious as Adventure Time can be.

Continuing in the tradition of naming the thing something I will never remember and will continuously have to Google, this sequel is being called Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!

Here’s the basic premise:

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.

Four player co-op! Now that’s exciting. There are so many great characters, it’d be a shame to not take advantage of that for a multiplayer experience. I just sincerely hope that the return of the voice actors means we’ll be hearing more from them rather than the one or two lines for atmosphere we got in the 3DS game.


  • I hope there’s a dungeon master mode on the WiiU version where you place mosters for the other players to deal with, like the King of Zombies mode on ZombieU

  • One of my friends ordered the previous adeventure time game for 3DS and Eb Games said that it wasnt to be released on 3DS in Australia, so she had to get the DS one instead

    • It wasn’t released outside the US at all. Because the 3DS games are region locked anyone outside the US had to import a DS copy (which is region free). EB Games just imported their copies.

    • Adventure time is like Vegemite. Some people love it, some people loathe it.

      I love Adventure time. .. I hate Vegemite..

      • I swear vegemite is like what would happen if you overfed a bunch of rats on dog droppings, smooshed them with a hammer, then jumped in the remains in a pair of unwashed gym socks, then wrung them out and bottled the run-off.

  • Why the hell would you want to play as Cinnamon Bun…?

    I just hope you can play as Flame Princess and she’s not just a damsel in distress for Finn to rescue.
