Cartoon Network is setting off in a different direction with its next Adventure Time game, reteaming with Little Orbit for a story-driven 3D adventure that transforms Jake and Finn into detectives.
Developed by Vicious Cycle, Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations sees Pendleton Ward’s beloved characters follow in the footsteps of Finn’s foster parents and become professional investigators. Faced with mysterious disappearances and strange events in the Land of Ooo, players will interrogate its inhabitants, dispatch evil-doers, solve puzzles and explore new and familiar locations.
Developer Little Orbit has pushed back the release of the Young Justice: Legacy video game from Sept. 10 to Nov. 19, World’s Finest reports. With the shift, it will now be available for Wii and Nintendo 3DS, in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii-U and Nintendo DS consoles and PC.
“They will have the same original story line written by [producers] Greg [Weisman] and Brandon [Vietti], but will take advantage of the touch screen ability offered by Nintendo,” a Little Orbit representative told the website. “We know fans have been waiting a long time for this game, but the doubling of available platforms is something fans have been asking for and we are happy that we are able to make it happen.”
Based on the Cartoon Network animated series, which was canceled earlier this year, Young Justice: Legacy is an action RPG set in the five-year gap between the first and second seasons. Players control multiple characters in a squad as they pursue a group of the Light’s most notorious villains in an effort to rescue renowned archaeologist Dr. Helena Sandsmark.
