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.”

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
