Publisher Little Orbit will release Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom in Europe on November 21, 2014. It’s noted for Nintendo 3DS, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
This is the third of the TV series to make it to some sort of console, all of whom had ridiculously long titles. Prior efforts were called Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage and Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know.
Much like previous titles tried to latch onto more classic games, this one will grow even closer to a certain action adventure. Hell, with the 16bit shtick in the press release, it can’t be more obvious that Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom wants to be A Link to the Past.
It has similar temples with artificial 2D floor differences, similar cool boss battles, outer worlds with shimmying monsters, battles by the waterside, blocking fireballs with your shield; it’s pretty damn similar is our point. Don’t let that deter you; as a good clone can always have some charm, certainly with the known quirkiness from the Adventure Time series.
There would only be three temples in this game, according to the press blurb. You can upgrade your character though, so maybe that will be used to fill out some content.
As with the former release, Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will be in hands of prolific developer WayForward, which seems to have taken a liking to licenses. They’ve also taken care of the Ducktales remaster and the game from less popular TV series Regular Show.
