Cartoon Network and Little Orbit are partnering to develop a new Adventure Time game and one that combines characters across Cartoon Network’s series, the companies announced today.
Little Orbits previous game development projects include Barbie Dreamhouse Party, Monsters High: 13 Wishes: The Official Game, Monsters High: Skultimate Roller Maze, Mistborn: Birthright, and Young Justice: Legacy—just to give you an idea about the caliber of their work.
The two companies most recently collaborated on Falling Skies Planetary Warfare, a mobile game based on TNT’s sci-fi series. Because that joint effort proved to be “a great experience,” Cartoon Network and Little Orbit decided to continue working together on the aforementioned Adventure Time and series-spanning Cartoon Network game.
Prior to this, WayForward Technologies handled development of two subpar Adventure Time games, 2012’s Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! and last year’s Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!
According to the press release, more details about both games “will be announced soon,” though both launches are planned for this year.
