Join Finn and Jake on adventure to find stolen trash.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?! was officially announced for both the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS through a press release today.

An Adventure Time game was teased over Twitter by the shows creator this past March. At the time we knew the game was coming to the DS, but not whether it was heading to the 3DS. Now the game is officially heading to both systems later this year during the fall. 

In the game you play as Finn and Jake in an adventure across the Land of Ooo while trying to teach the Ice King a lesson. The Ice King has stolen their trash and is constructing a Garbage Princess.

The Adventure Time video game is being developed by WayForward and will be published by D3Publisher. It is expected to be at E3 2012 in June.

Oh My Glob! This is Legendary! D3Publisher and Cartoon Network Enterprises Announce New Partnership and Video Game for Adventure Time

LOS ANGELES – May 8, 2012 – Ready for a mathematical, algebraic, radical time? D3Publisher (D3P), a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software, and Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) today officially announced the upcoming release of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!, a video game based on the popular Cartoon Network series, Adventure Time. This is the first Adventure Time video game that will release on the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and Nintendo DS™ hand-held system late fall.

In the first licensed Adventure Time video game, Finn and Jake wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King. Jake couldn’t care less about half-eaten bananas, crumpled up burrito wrappers, and old chicken diapers – but when they find out the Ice King is using their stolen goods to construct a Garbage Princess, the heroes embark on a fantastical adventure to teach him a lesson! Journey through the Land of Ooo in an offbeat adventure and discover perilous dungeons and unimaginable treasures, while playing as Finn and Jake in a unique action-adventure experience.

Working alongside the game’s developer WayForward is the series’ creator Pendleton Ward, who is designing a new storyline and quests for the game.

“Adventure Time fans have been asking for a video game to complement the series for some time, and we are working directly with Pendelton Ward, who has an amazing vision for the game,” said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. “Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?! will be a fan’s golden ticket into the elusive Adventure Time universe and will capture the random fun and adventure we all love about the series.”

Adventure Time is the pop culture sensation, Emmy-nominated, top-rated show among kids, and its popularity continues to soar both on air and at retail. The series follows Finn, an adventure-seeking kid and Jake, his shape-shifting canine best friend, on their adventures in the Land of Ooo. The awesome duo save princesses, battle the notorious princess-kidnapper, the Ice King, party in Lumpy Space, fight in dungeons, and even befriend Marceline the Vampire Queen. Since the start of its fourth season, Adventure Time is the #1 program on Mondays on all television with kids 6-11.

“The rich and diverse characters in the Adventure Time world are absolutely perfect for a video game franchise and working with D3Publisher, WayForward and Pendelton Ward, we have a great team in place to bring it to life,” said Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products, Cartoon Network Enterprises. “This game will provide the Land of Ooo experience that young fans will love.”

I am watching it but not as much as MLP:FIM. It is an okay show but I haven't gotten into it that much yet to give detailed thoughts on it yet.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?! is one awesome game name. LOL

I'm excited and still wary. It's great to hear the 3DS version announced and the title is hilarious. I've been watching the show sporadically, but I got a DVD to get more into it, the back story of the world is interesting: The Land of Ooo is an island in a post apocalyptic world where Finn is the last human and goes on adventures with his magical shape shifting dog, Jake. The Ice King is a survivor of a great war and wasn't always evil. His story is actually tragic.
I can't wait for impressions from E3.
