Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion E3 2018 Preview

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is the latest game take on the series with a canon correct entry presented within the later seasons of the show. This is shown by the whole arm situation with Finn. That aside, I was given a live demo while I was at E3 2018. It was supposed to be shorter so I could see Crayola Scoot, but that never happened. What was shown is a colorful and true to the show presentation of this game in action. We were shown this open water area and the basic boating mechanics that are involved with the sailing.

It's an open world adventure so you have the freedom to go around and do whatever you'd like. The world seems large and from the quick glance I was given it looks to incorporate the core elements of the show. This includes the environments, characters and of course that charm with comedic yet fun moments. The sailing aspects immediately reminded me of Wind Waker and depending on how well that's integrated it could mirror that Zelda well. It has that sense of wonder for sure while also having hidden secrets scattered across the flooded land of Ooo.

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is not just about sailing around, it's also a turn based game when it comes to combat. It's a seamless transition from moving by boat to walking around on land and then getting into battle. I was assured that the difficulty will be adjustable for any type of player, so any audience can enjoy this. The combat is just as colorful and fun as regular gameplay, it splits off into teams where you pick attacks.

You can have a combination of members in your squad and after every battle the spoils are shared. These are then used to upgrade your team to make them more powerful. I'm quite intrigued how this full release will be, it seems expansive and seamless. During the demo we were shown ice areas, open seas and part of the Candy Kingdom. Each represents their respective area from the show and the characters seem true. It'll even have some new ones that were given the ok to be official canon. Should be something the fans will love.
