Amazon's animated TV adaptation of Double Fine's much-loved Costume Quest series will premiere on March 8th - and there's a first proper trailer to celebrate.
Costume Quest's television adaptation was first announced back in 2017, and is the work of Frederator Studios, the team responsible for the likes of Adventure Time and Netflix's animated Castlevania series.
Based on the promo material shared so far, Costume Quest's TV adaptation looks to remain pretty faithful to Double Fine's duo of Costume Quest games. It follows the adventures of four young friends - Wren, Reynold, Everett, and Lucy - as they attempt to fend off dark forces on Hallowe'en in order to save Auburn Hollow, their sleepy hometown. As you might imagine, costumes imbued with amazing magical powers are very much involved.
As you might recall, last year brought the news that Costume Quest, developer Double Fine's delightful trick-or-treaty Halloween RPG, was to be turned into an animated TV series. That's still a thing that's happening - and if you need further proof, it now has an opening title sequence!
The Xbox One backwards compatibility library just grew four titles fatter today with the addition of Virtua Fighter 2, Quantum Conundrum, Costume Quest 2 and Frontlines: Fuel of War.
Double Fine's Costume Quest franchise is being adapted into an animated TV series, set to debut in 2018 on Amazon Prime.
The show is produced by Frederator Studios - the company behind cartoon hit Adventure Time and Netflix's upcoming Castlevania reboot.
It's unknown if Costume Quest's TV incarnation will follow the plot of the two games released by Double Fine, but the one piece of artwork released so far suggests some of the same characters may feature.
Costume Quest will be getting its own animated short film.
