Bandai Namco and Outright Games have announced Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, a new open-world pirate adventure based on the cult Cartoon Network show.
“The Land of Ooo is underwater,” we’re told, “and it’s up to Finn and Jake to find out why. Join our heroes as they explore dangerous waters, search for clues, interrogate pirates and fight bad guys to solve this wet, wet mystery and save the day!”
You’ll be able to roam the waterlogged Land of Ooo freely in your vessel, sailing the seas to reach distant kingdoms, and plundering for loot as Finn, Jake, BMO, Marceline, and other fan-favourite characters. “Upgrade your heroes, use items, spells, potions and unique ultimate hero abilities,” says Bandai Namco, “to battle bad guys in fast-paced tactical combat.”
Pirates of the Enchiridion is being developed by UK outfit Climax Studios and is due to release for Xbox One,PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in “spring” 2018. Previous Adventure Time games have been something of a mixed bag in terms of quality, but this one sounds (and looks – check out the screenshots) wonderful, so fingers crossed, eh?
In a nifty marketing flourish, Bandai Namco is also holding a competition to name Finn and Jake’s boat in Pirates of the Enchiridion. The best (or, more likely, the least offensive), will make it into the final game. You can submit your suggestions here.
