New Adventure Time and Regular Show 3DS games!
D3P wil put out two games based on my favorite Cartoon Network shows this fall, including a new Adventure Time release for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows. Titled Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, the game has players “exploring the mysteries surrounding a massive Secret Royal Dungeon deep below the Land of Ooo.” It will feature voices from the show and four-player co-op.
In Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land, which we now know is a 3DS exclusive, the game’s eponymous characters “get transported into some of their favorite video games [where] they’ll have to use their best skills and unique abilities to traverse the various challenges to escape and get back home.”
Both are under development by WayForward — that news is either awesome or disappointing, depending on your opinion of the studio’s output and the first Adventure Time DS/3DS game.
Love this art by JL Hirten, by the way!
Yea-uh!! Regular Show game on the way
D3Publisher and Cartoon Network have a game based on one of the best/funniest animated shows (I enjoy it almost as much as Adventure Time), coming out later this year to a mystery console or consoles. I asked D3P who’s developing the title, but the publisher says it’s not yet ready to disclose the studio and has plans to identify the team soon.
The last time D3P and Cartoon Network collaborated, they brought in WayForward to create a game for Regular Show’s half-hour-mate Adventure Time on DS and 3DS. That turned out super fun — maybe we’ll see the trio reunite?
The other chap next to the adorable Adventure Time portable is MO-Death, whom Clog Two describes as “a circuit board being, that awaits BMO’s last breath.” But… I don’t want BMO to die ever.

Check out Jake the
Dog Dad blowing into his copy of Mom’s Manual for Raising Beautiful Children to get it to work (remember, kids, Nintendo discourages “cassette fufu”!). He also gives us a preview of what the Nintendo HoloPro XL could look like.
Exploded parts view of BMO. While others are busy tearing down the Wii U to see what’s powering the system, artist Justin Edwards created this poster to give us a view of Adventure Time’s sentient game console taken apart.
While it looks like there are a few significant components missing, like her VHS player and butt printer, I imagine it would be difficult to figure out how all those different parts fit into such a tiny, adorable machine.

What if Adventure Time’s Pendleton Ward and Natasha Allegri made a Pokemon animation about Ash and Pikachu farting? No need to wonder, it is a thing that exists!
Something about this reminds me a lot of Mare Odomo’s take on Ash Ketchum and Pikachu, except it’s animated, and instead of crying because it’s so beautifully cruel, you’re crying because Ash believes no one will hear him passing gas so long as he’s clapping.

Cut Man by Eric Kubli. A non MML3-related Mega Man post?! Is that even possible this week? Nope — I have to take this opportunity to mention the “100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3” campaign that people have been bombarding our tips inbox with.
Anyway, back to Cut Man, oh my god, I could not stop watching this video about his incompetence yesterday:
“I’m going to make paper dolls out of you!” And if you haven’t seen it yet, you need to watch this Pharaoh Man clip. JC and I were for real LOL-ing over it.

Veteran readers will remember that we came together two years ago to elect our country’s current leader, President Ming-Ming Duckling — a historic vote placing an Anatidae-American as the U.S. head of state for the first time.
Well, Election Day has returned, and we wanted to remind all of you eligible voters to head out to your polling stations and support whichever cartoon character you feel is best equipped to represent your interests.
Voting is like leaving your Mii Stamp on our government!

Papercraft for Beemo, that adorable and portable video game console you’ll often see pop up in Adventure Time. It can walk around! It can even talk! And it also plays funky titles like Adventure Masters (with Bit.Trip-esque graphics and dueling Abraham Lincolns) and Bug Battle.
Did you see last Monday’s new half-episode, in which Donny (the jerk) breaks one of Beemo’s controllers? Man, I was pissed. Let’s see how long this clip stays up:
In the video, you’ll hear that Beemo has a Korean female’s voice (likely the same voice actress as Lady Rainicorn); knowing it’s a Korean handheld somehow makes the made-up console even more interesting! I wonder if she’s related to Tiny at all? He’s mentioned to us before that he’d love to visit Korea one day…
Oh yeah, you can download a template for the Beemo papercraft designed by Bryan Green at this link.
Video game console featured in tonight’s Adventure Time episode. It has a wired controller, but the directional pad, buttons, speaker holes, and battery cover (not shown in this shot) suggest you can play it as a handheld if you want? It has arms and legs, too, so who knows what else it can do?! And what does BM stand for?
When this image first appeared on the Cartoon Network show, I thought, “Holy crap, is that a Bit.Trip game?” Closer inspection, though, revealed it’s some kind of fighting title, starring what looks like dueling Abraham Lincolns. While there’s a two-player mode, Jake and Finn take turns with the single-player campaign. I believe the game is called Adventure Masters.
Six and a half minutes into this “Business Time” episode, you can actually hear some music from the game. Adventure Masters has a pretty wicked soundtrack!
[Update: The handheld’s name is Beemo! Apparently, he appears a number of times in the show. Here’s artwork of Beemo with his face and waving hello to you!]

8-bit remix of Adventure Time’s theme by Doctor Octoroc. Have you watched the first two episodes of Adventure Time yet? Oh man, it is like the best thing since best things. Did you see what happened to Tree Trunks several nights ago?! OMG, I lumping love this show!

Sonic the Hedgehog and Helen from Sonic X (the cartoon). This totally should have been one of the drivable vehicles selected for Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.
Any time I think of this kart racing game, I can’t help but complain about all the great Sega characters that didn’t make the cut: ToeJam & Earl, Shenmue’s Nozomi Harasaki, and of course Saturn mascot Segata Sanshiro. Fortunately, I’m used to Sega disappointing me.
