PAX Prime 2012 | D3Publisher Showcases Upcoming Adventure Time Game

D3Publisher is featuring a hands-on demo of its upcoming Nintendo DS & 3DS sidescroller — Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!! — at this year’s PAX Prime.

Based on the hit Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time HIKWYSOG (“hick-why-sogg?”) is being developed by WayForward Technologies, a team that has had success with Nintendo before in the forms of A Boy and His Blob (Wii) and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge (DS).

Here’s Adventure Time’s premise from

Finn and Jake wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King! Jake couldn’t care less about half-eaten bananas, crumpled up math notes, and old chicken diapers – but when the Ice King uses these stolen goods to construct a Garbage Princess, our heroes embark on a fantastical adventure and teach him a lesson! Journey through the Land of Ooo in an offbeat adventure and discover perilous dungeons, unimaginable treasures, the true meaning of friendship, and never-ending fun!

Adventure Time is scheduled for release on DS and 3DS November 13 of this year. A $29.99 regular and $39.99 Collector’s Edition will be available on both platforms. The game is awaiting a final ESRB rating.

Attendees can get their hands on Adventure Time in the Nintendo Gaming Lounge on the 2nd floor of the Washington State Convention Center.
