Ok, stupid article title, I’ll give you that, but let’s move on to the news shall we? Wayforward has announced two new games in development based off of hit Cartoon Network shows Adventure Time and Regular Show. Adventure Time: Explore The Dungeon Because I Don’t Know has the player exploring the secret dungeon beneath the Candy Kingdom and will not only feature multiple selectable characters, but also four person co-op and the actual voice actors from the show. If you read my review on the last Adventure Time game, you’d know that, while a very pleasing experience for a fan of the show, in the actual gameplay department it left me wanting more, especially for the price tag that they put it at. Hopefully Wayforward learned something and will be able to not only offer more to the game besides amazing sprite work, but also deliver it at a reasonable price. But that’s not the only game they’ve announced, right along side it is a game announcement for it’s co-hit show, Regular Show. Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-bit Land finds our two heroes transported inside their favorite video games and in desperate need of a way out. No release date has been given but they are said to be released later this fall, with the Regular Show game landing on the 3DS, and the Adventure Time game landing on Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and 3DS. As with the last game, Wayforward has stated that the creators of both shows are working very closely with Wayforward on their respective titles.
Activision has released a trailer for a downloadable game they have planned for this summer based off of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Now some might be wondering which continuity the game is based off of, especially with what seems to be a lot of love from the media world focusing on the series lately. Luckily it looks to be based off of the currently running Nickelodeon series instead of the known Micheal Bay film (evident by the nickelodeon logo at the end of the trailer, and the fact that they’re actually mutants, not aliens, and Megan Fox is thankfully no where to be seen), however the graphics are much more realistic than cartoonish, so I’m really only venturing a guess there. It is possible that the only reason the nickelodeon logo is there is because nick currently holds the rights to TMNT. The game seems to be a sort of 3D action game ala Batman’s Arkham series, though likely with much less content considering it appears to be download only, and also is apparently the first of a three game deal with Activision. The game will be released on PSN, XBLA and PC this summer and feature online 4 player co-op.
