SANTA ANA, Calif., May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — What time is it? It’s time for an all-new Adventure Time video game! Little Orbit, alongside Cartoon Network Enterprises, announce the third installment in the mathematical Adventure Time video game franchise. Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is slated to launch in November 2014 and will be developed by veteran game studio WayForward, which created the franchise’s first two titles. The game will introduce a classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving element to the franchise, reminiscent of early high fantasy console games.
“WayForward is the perfect studio to bring the third all-new Adventure Time video game to fans of the animated series,” said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. “Just like the Adventure Time television series, these video games have resonated strongly across all age groups and we’re thrilled to be publishing the latest installment of this beloved franchise.”
In Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom, players take on the personas of both Finn and Jake as they navigate through the eponymous kingdom – a mysterious unexplored region in the Land of Ooo. They will discover hidden secrets by exploring all corners of a new kingdom created exclusively for the game and encounter never-seen-before characters and creatures.
“There is a huge amount of excitement and anticipation around this latest Adventure Time video game release with WayForward once again working closely alongside Cartoon Network and the Adventure Time team to develop the game,” said Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products, North America for Cartoon Network Enterprises. “We’re confident that the action adventure and puzzle-solving elements to this game are a great fit for the brand and will provide an engaging experience to Adventure Time fans of all ages.”
