Two Adventure Time Video Games Say Goodbye


Video game publisher Little Orbit announced that they’ll be removing their Adventure Time video games from all digital storefronts. The company’s license to the Cartoon Network series has expired and thus they won’t be legally allowed to sell the games after March 31, 2018.

The games affected are:

  • Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom (Nintendo 3DS/PS Vita/PlayStation 3/Windows/Xbox 360)
  • Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations (Nintendo 3DS/Nintendo Wii U/PlayStation 3/PlayStation 4/Windows/Xbox 360/Xbox One)

Those that have purchased digital copies will continue to be able to play them after the games are removed from the storefronts. Outside of there not being any reprints, physical copies are unaffected.

The first Adventure Time home console game debuted in 2012 with the Nintendo DS/3DS release Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! It was followed the year after with Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know! Both were developed by Wayforward, released by D3 Publisher and have since been removed from digital storefronts. Little Orbit entered the picture in 2014 with Secret of the Nameless Kingdom, which was also a Wayforward production. Their final Adventure Time game, Finn and Jake Investigations, was developed by Vicious Cycle Software and shipped in the fall of 2015.

The Adventure Time license has since been picked up by Outright Games, who are working on Pirates Of The Enchiridion which is due out on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One sometime this spring. After nearly 8 years, the hit Cartoon Network original series is scheduled to end sometime this year.
