Pendleton Ward, the creator of the hit Cartoon Network show Adventure Time, tweeted last week some exciting news for fans of the hit show, which has already spawned off several highly popular comics.

Last week, using his @BuenoTheBear handle on Twitter, Ward tweeted,

Dang.. Compy crashed while I was drawin a gif of this 3DS wavin it’s arms around announcin the Adventure Time 3DS game.

Well…. he finally got that gif finished up, and tweeted the following doodles and information about the game to his followers:

I picked up a 3DS back in December, and thanks to backwards-compatibility, I’ll be able to play the Adventure Time DS game on it. Not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited to see what a game based on these guys is gonna be like. I mean, in the show, Finn and Jake play on BMO all the time. I hope the game is a mixed-up bag of throwback 8-bit platform and asteroid-like gaming like they play on the show, with newer, beautifully-rendered gaming engines. But whatever kind of game it is, I’m gonna buy it and play it till my fingers hurt.
