VIDEO: "Zelda II" Fans Should Peep the New "Adventure Time" Game

Upcoming Nintendo DS/3DS game takes a bunch of notes from the NES classic

WayForward—the folks behind games like Contra 4, Shantae, Aliens: Infestation, and many more—are digging into Adventure Time with the help of creator Pendleton Ward, and the Nintendo DS/3DS game is taking inspiration from one of the NES classics. Check out the first teaser for Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! below to see a whole lot of appreciation for 1987's The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link



The top-down overworld transitioning into 2D side-scrolling combat. The shadowy enemies. Even some of the sound effects and music bring memories of Zelda II flooding back. WayForward's track record is mostly solid, with a few modest blunders along the way, so hopefully their take on Adventure Time delivers when it comes out this fall.
