Another year, another Adventure Time game born from a partnership between Cartoon Network and developers WayForward. While neither of the two previous games have been spectacularly well received, erm, well, why not make a third game? Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will be released in November later this year, shipping another action/adventure title full of classic Adventure Time humor for the whole family.
Three princesses from the Nameless Kingdom have been kidnapped and so it's up to Finn, with help from his faithful bro Jake, to rescue them and to discover who the kidnappers really are. With three unique temples and a final dungeon to be explored, as well as mini-adventures featuring the Ice King, Marceline, LSP and more, hopefully everyone feels like they're getting their money's worth.
Don't get me wrong, I respect the folk at Cartoon Network funding smaller development of interesting games like they're making. Still, as a huge Adventure Time, I think it would behoove them to try and find a partnership somewhere that could lead to some great, super high quality games. Imagine Platinum Games making an Adventure Time title like they're doing a Korra game? That would be unbelievable. For now, we're kind of stuck with these rather extravagantly priced action/adventure titles.
Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will be released this November for the Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and about time, the PC.
