New Adventure Time game announced for 3DS ⊟
Developed once again by WayForward (published this time by Little Orbit instead of D3P), Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will release for 3DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC/Steam this November. No Wii U or new-gen versions, as far as I can tell!
Unfortunately, this is not the online multiplayer version of Drop Ball we’ve all been clamoring for. Instead, it “introduces a classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving element to the franchise, reminiscent of early high fantasy console games.”
"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," Little Orbit adds. "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."
Still unsure why they just don’t make Drop Ball — it’d be an automatic hit, and would take over the eSports scene.
Custom Famicom 3DS XL ⊟
WayForward’s James Montagna put together this rad Famicom-color 3DS XL using, it looks like, a Zelda 3DS XL and a red one. It’s pictured here among his other Famicom-style handhelds and some business card cases.
Bold move, taking apart the sought-after Zelda 3DS XL!
Adventure Time 3DS’s collector’s edition ⊟
Along with the special BMO packaging that comes with the $40 collector’s edition for Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know! 3DS, you’ll also get a bonus DVD (interviews, concept sketches from Pendleton Ward, and more), and Finn and Jake’s Dungeon Guide.
I remember a lot of people feeling like chumps when they didn’t get the last Adventure Time game’s collector’s set..
WayForward’s canceled Silent Hill DS ⊟
Amazing! The same stream event that led to the first viewing of Shantae GBA also brought us this: an unfinished, unreleased Silent Hill game WayForward was working on for DS.
It’s just a tech demo starring Silent Hill 2’s James Sunderland, but it shows that WayForward originally had a much more traditional Silent Hill in mind than Book of Memories.

Win a Shantae-themed 3DS ⊟
..and WayForward’s whole eShop catalog! All you have to do is draw some Shantae fanart for this Crunchyroll contest. “Fan art includes, but is not limited to: drawings, sculptures, macaroni glitter art — as long as you can send it in as a JPEG format image.” You have until October 4. Keep it clean.
Speaking of, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero passed its Kickstarter goal this week, and has 10 days left to get additional funding!

Play Shantae at Giant Robot’s Game Night ⊟
In LA on my birthday (September 21)? Go to GR2 and play Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse and Wii U Mighty Switch Force 2, while you listen to a live performance by Virt! It’s a night of WayForward!
Speaking of Pirate’s Curse, Nintendo UK recently posted a developer interview video of the game with WayForward, which you can watch here.
Anyway, I have been jealous of literally every one of these Game Night events, you guys. Except for the one I went to… and I’m still jealous I didn’t get to stay very long.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero now coming to Vita* ⊟
Pretty excited to have an official reason to post about this game on our handheld game site! It’s going to look nice on that screen. Or the Vita 2000’s other screen. Or the Vita TV’s your screen.
*if it gets funded!

New Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse trailer ⊟
Speaking of Shantae and its Kickstarter, WayForward is still releasing this for 3DS eShop this year! That pixelart! That tank boss fight! And oh my god, that music!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero being Kickstarted ⊟
So I’m a full day late on this, but that’s life with babies. I still wanted to point out WayForward’s Kickstarter drive for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, a sequel to the GBA/DSiWare/etc. series due for Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam.
The early screens already look incredible, featuring background work by Gigi D.G. of Cucumber Quest fame (and artwork by WayForward’s reliably excellent artists!)
$15 or more will get you a copy of the game, but if you have an extra $10,000 kicking around, you can attend a wrap party for the project and receive a sealed copy of the first Shantae.
Big week for cool Kickstarters! It’s weird to think that a WayForward Kickstarter and a Kickstarter for a “Mighty” game happened within days of each other, but WayForward didn’t make the “Mighty” one.
The new Adventure Time 3DS game will have a BMO Collector’s Edition ⊟
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! is coming out for a lot of systems (3DS, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows), but the 3DS version will have a $39.99 special edition that includes a copy of the game, BMO packaging in a SteelBook case, a bonus DVD (actor interviews, storyboard art from Pendleton Ward, and more), and a Finn and Jake’s Dungeon Guide enhanced manual.
The 3DS game also has an exclusive feature — BMO appears on the touch screen with hints and game commentary. The Wii U version also has BMO appearing on the GamePad, where he’ll deliver over 300 voice clips with “game tips, boss hints, clues about enemy weaknesses, game commentary, and more.” All versions release this fall.
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!
And now we have a trailer for the Diablo-style multiplayer game coming to 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this fall. The gameplay clips are short, but it’s neat/weird/cool to see the voice actors behind Jake, Finn, and the Ice King talk about the game.
There’s also a trailer for the Regular Show 3DS game. It looks aight, I dunno.
