Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will be the next video game entry in the series from WayForward, publisher Little Orbit announced today. It will debut on 3DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Steam this November. A Wii U version is not planned.

Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom features a classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving elements, reminiscent of early high fantasy console games.

Players will be taking on the roles of both Finn and Jake as they navigate through the eponymous kingdom – a mysterious unexplored region in the Land of Ooo. The two characters will find hidden secrets by exploring all corners of a brand new kingdom made just for the game and encounter never-seen-before characters and creatures.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is currently on track to launch in June. Activision recently sent out a press release about a DLC pre-order bonus at GameStop (which won’t be available on Wii U/3DS), and noted that the upcoming game is “expected” out on June 24. Let’s hope that date sticks!

There’s been a lot of talk about Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on consoles since the game was revealed at this year’s Toy Fair over the weekend. But what about the 3DS version?

Although we don’t have a ton of information, GamerFitNation reports that the handheld title will be strategy RPG, as opposed to Edge of Reality’s action-oriented title on consoles. WayForward has also been officially confirmed as the 3DS version’s developer.
