Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations announced for PS3 & PS4

A modern take on a classic adventure game

Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is the newest game based on the hit Cartoon Network series. It takes our heroes and the Land of Ooo to a whole new dimension of gameplay and visuals on PS3 and PS4.

What new dimensions you ask? Read on!

At its heart, Finn and Jake Investigations is a modern take on a classic adventure game, a genre that has seen a recent resurgence. Gameplay is based on exploring, investigating, and puzzle-solving. Through the course of the episodes, you get to interact with dozens of your favorite Adventure Time characters all over the Land of Ooo, including the Candy and Fire Kingdoms, Wizard City, and Castle Lemongrab.

And there’s a reason for all of this investigating! Joshua and Margaret – Jake’s mother and father, who also raised Finn – were seasoned detectives back in the days before becoming parents. They received their assignments from a machine called the “tickertype,” which printed out information on various cases. Now, Finn and Jake have unearthed the tickertype and decide to go into the investigation business themselves.

Rather than following a single story arc that spans the entire game, the adventure plays out as a series of separate (but related) adventures in which Finn and Jake must travel the kingdoms of Ooo in order to solve the tickertype mysteries, set around the middle of the sixth season of the show.

Investigating and puzzle-solving are the heart of the game – but, wait! There’s more!

The game’s not focused on fighting, but what would Adventure Time be if Finn couldn’t solve at least some problems with his trusty sword? Combat is fast-paced, pitting Finn against a variety of familiar foes who drop lots of collectibles and loot (as game enemies so often do). When you go back to the Tree House after each “episode” you’ll see piles of dosh grow in Finn and Jake’s treasure room.

The depth of the story and the amount of character interaction really immerses you in the game – and the icing on the cake is the visual presentation. For the first time ever, you get to see the Land of Ooo in eye-popping 3D. We have gone to great lengths to faithfully capture the art of the show as it’s never been seen before. Hey…we’re all fans of the show, too, and we’re doing it up right!

Finn and Jake Investigations hits the shelves this autumn. Be there!

I feel like that characters would look better cel-shaded.

MATHEMATICAL!

As long as this won’t be sold for the price of AAA, and instead for like 10€ i’ll buy it. And free for PS+ would be great too ;)

I wouldn’t expect it to go for 10€.
Considered the prices of the EU store, it just seems unrealistic. In my opinion that is.

Come on now, the obvious choice is an open world RPG. the land of Ooo is BEGGING to be discovered this way….
Give it to Bethesda, Avalanche, Obsidian.

That would be the good choice after many crappy dungeon crawlers and bta that never did justice to the franchise.

Hi, any chance of a PS Vita version?

Language Support?

So far there has only been ONE Adventure Time game that didn’t suck (Hey Ice King on DS) and this sure doesn’t look like it’s going to be the next one.

Wait, so you’re making a classic-style adventure game, but skipping the Vita? The system which has an existing adventure game fanbase with the likes of Grim Fandango, Machinarium, Broken Sword and the upcoming Day of the Tentacle port? Good job.

9.1

all of the games you mentioned are available on the ps3/4. the ps3/4 also has a adventure game fanbase and much more users than the vita so it only makes sense

Looks dreadful, could be a good game but the fact the art style is too far removed from the original TV show puts me off.

How about releasing the previous Adventure Time game on Vita in Europe? Its been out for ages in the USA on both Vita and PS3, but we only got the PS3 version.

Looks awful.
