    Mathematical cartoon series Adventure Time is finally getting a proper video game release, coming to the DS.

    Series creator Pendleton Ward Tweeted this announcement as well as his partnering with WayForward Technologies. No release date was given, but it is set for later this year.

    While many may greet this as a standard cartoon show cash in, the title is being developed by WayForward Technologies, makers of Aliens: Infestation, Shantae and its sequel, as well as Mighty Switch Force and the Wii exclusive A Boy and His Blob.

    No info was given about the gameplay, but seeing WayForward's past games, one can assume it'll be a platformer of some sorts. There's a few sketches at the source about the announcement, but nothing about the game itself. You'll just have to wait for more info on this one.

    I've only seen a few episodes, but it was pretty entertaining, and it did actually seem to have a lot of... well, the world seemed pretty vast, content-wise. Hopefully the game's not a total spinoff alternate-dimension thing.

    I'm such a huge fan of this show!

    Even though I have a DS and not a 3DS, I'm still sad that it's not a 3DS game because there will be size constraints now, and it basically rules out the possibility of it being an open-world action RPG.

    Im pretty sure it's going to be on the 3DS, I don't see why the would put it on the DS.

    Only seen a few eps of this show, but I liked what I saw still. I really hope they turn this into a 3D action adventure or something.

    Ew. The whole series is done in 2D animation so anything 3D would just look dumb. I'd rather have like some algebraic 2D art that's really fluid, like Rayman Origins.

    But the world is pretty expansive and the series has taken pride in a few video game references here and there, so a video game for the series should be really good. With a good dev behind it as well, this has a ton of potential.

    Normally I hate when people say "OH IT SHOULD BE FOR THE 3DS" but I would like it on that (or preferably the Vita) since those systems can handle Rayman Origins and much better 2D graphics than the DS.

    Although some may see this as some sort of shovelwarish piece of crap if you've seen a few episodes and have confidence in Wayforward you know this could be one good fucking game.

    I have a lot of hope for this one. The show is easily one of the best cartoons of the past decade, and it's being developed by a developer that tends to not disappoint. And who cares if it's on the DS? Remember, the DS can go up to 512MB, but knowing Wayforward, it will probably be around the 64MB to 128MB mark. That still can make for a lot of content if done right.

    I was more so talking about graphics. I'd rather have something with really fluid 2D graphics and I don't think the DS can handle that anywhere near as well as the 3DS or Vita. I do like sprite stuff but cartoon games usually deserve similar looking graphics. Even the Naruto games have an art style to reflect its anime/cartoon style.

    I'll probably still enjoy a sprite based game and being able to pirate it is nice but I've really become a sucker for nice 2D graphics as of late.
