Adventure Time (DS, 3DS) will be like Zelda 2
 
According to WayForward, the Adventure Time 3DS/DS project will contain adventure gameplay. The studio considered making it a puzzle-platformer or brawler, but thought that it wouldn’t be true to the show’s title.

WayForward designer Matt Bozon said the team “decided that something like Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link was the common ground”. He added:

“Because of this our top-view areas focus on quests and exploration, and the side view combines combat with platforming.”

[QUOTE=Why would you do that?;39447911]Yet another thing from that WayForward interview featured today:

[url]http://www.nintendojo.com/features/interviews/e3-2012-interview-with-wayforward[/url]

ND: Was [a top-down game development approach] the case with the Adventure Time video game?

[QUOTE]Voldi: That one was actually very collaborative with [Adventure Time creator] Pendleton Ward because he had been tweeting about game designs forever, you know, like, “Oh I want it to be Zelda meets, you know, whatever,” so that one was very collaborative. And he actually has really good gameplay sensibilities too, you know, but he and Matt Bozon would just go on these sprees where they would just kind of work out what was happening. So yeah, that one’s been pretty fun. I wouldn’t say that one was as bottom-up. That one, he had come up with a story, like the garbage stealing thing, and he probably drew it on a napkin. I don’t know actually. He’s so funny because almost any email he sends there’s a picture attached, like some little sketch of, you know, Finn doing a thumbs up or something.[/QUOTE]

In other words, instead of WayForward's typical work-for-hire games where they have a story, a setting, etc. and design a game around it, here they design the game first, then added the story. Plus, it's being worked closely with the Adventure Time creator himself, who seems cool, I guess. lol.[/QUOTE]

I've really gotten in to the Adventure Time show of late, my V+ box is set to record each and every instance of it. I can dig this style.

Tucah 07-02-2012 09:52 PM

Never saw the show but I like the art style and love Zelda 2, so I'm in.

SonicMegaDrive 07-02-2012 09:53 PM

Couldn't care less about the cartoon, but a Zelda 2-esque game by WayForward sounds appetizing.

matics 07-02-2012 09:53 PM

Sounds cool. I hope this opens the way for a Regular Show game getting made.

GhostTrick 07-02-2012 09:53 PM

I hope it will be released in Europe.:(

What a swell-looking article! I can't wait to read the whole thing when I buy my issue of Nintendo Power! I think we should all buy a copy!

Boney 07-02-2012 09:57 PM

At least Wayforward is better than DreamRift

so if we're gonna have someone make a boring game I rather be them

Dacvak 07-02-2012 09:57 PM

I really want a Regular Show game, but I have no idea what it'd be about.

BorkBork 07-02-2012 09:57 PM

This looks AMAZING. Hope it delivers.

MasterShotgun 07-02-2012 09:57 PM

This keeps sounding better and better. I'm pretty sure it won't be as hellishly difficult as Zelda 2, but that's a plus in my eyes.

Pinko Marx 07-02-2012 09:58 PM

I am SO okay with this.

It would probably be a 16-bit brawler in the style of Final Fight or Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It seems to be the only type of game they play in the show, anyways.

Yeah, that'd be a good idea. I'm sure we'll get a Regular Show game at some point.

Fuu 07-02-2012 10:02 PM

Sounds conceptually sweet and looks great too, hopefully it delivers. I really want a good Adventure Time game.

Drago 07-02-2012 10:02 PM

This on a 3DS XL.... HNNNNNGGG

This and Epic Mickey give me hope for more sprites on 3DS :)

In 3D those screens should be...BRING IT IN EUROPE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, FU*K.

And yeah, those are 3DS shots, look at the screen size.

GrotesqueBeauty 07-02-2012 10:04 PM

Sounds cool, I'll have to keep my eye on it. I generally like WayForward, but it seems like the quality of their output varies widely. To be fair though, even at their worst they still churn out infinitely better licensed games than most developers. Hell, I've considered buying some of their stuff I have barely any interest in just to admire the sprite work.

The more the merrier!

Plus this was announced last year

Perfect Cha0s 07-02-2012 10:04 PM

I'm so confused, so is this a DS title AND a 3DS title, as in, two separate versions? Or by "DS/3DS," do they mean that it's a DS title that (obviously) can be played on the 3DS?

Sounds pretty cool, though, at any rate.

GDGF 07-02-2012 10:05 PM

This looks so good.

BorkBork 07-02-2012 10:06 PM

*sigh* I had forgotten about this... Is it even announced yet? The show is broadcast on several European countries, but I don't think it's "big" on any of them.

I hate when that happens. The future of gaming should be region free so everyone can get in on the fun! Not sure if DS/3DS are region free or not.

Apparently the 3DS version is 3D, or at least there's a sign for not playing it in 3D on the boxart:

I like to think it does well in the UK, I need to believe as such so that there is a market for the game here.

Deified Data 07-02-2012 10:16 PM

This...this is amazing. That is, it has the potential to be amazing. Please, please be amazing.

Well it's on like 2 or 3 times a day on Cartoon Network, so I'd like to think there's a fanbase for it.

Boss Doggie 07-02-2012 10:19 PM

Wasn't there already an iOS game of RS? It's a beat'em up.
