Watch the launch trailer for Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! has now received a launch trailer. The footage doesn’t show us anything new, but the montage of gameplay does show off the co-op mode, some dungeon crawling, which is all presented in a wacky style you’d come to expect from the series.

The second game based on the animated TV show was released across various platforms last week. The Wii U version will be released in Europe on 6th December, while 3DS owners will have to wait a week later, because well, I DON’T KNOW!

With Wii Fit U out last week, Nintendo’s continuing its apparent push to target the Wii U towards casual gamers with this week’s release of two Wii Sports Club mini-games. Bowling and Tennis are the first two reskinned Wii games to arrive as part of this package – you can pick up a Wii Sports Club Day Pass for £1.79, offering you twenty-four hours of gameplay from any of the available sports, or buy each sport individually for £8.99.

It’s worth noting that these games have been outsourced to Namco Bandai, where HD graphics, MotionPlus controls and online multiplayer have been integrated into the experience. Continue reading
