Double Fine’s Costume Quest is Set to Become a Cartoon Series Debuting Later this Week on Amazon
The classic Halloween-centered video game Costume Quest will now be a new TV series on Amazon.
After originally releasing back in 2010, Double Fine’s adorable adventure game centered around Halloween, Costume Quest, is now set to become a cartoon series later this week.
In collaboration with Frederator Studios, Costume Quest is set to debut exclusively on Amazon’s Prime Video service this Friday, March 8. The series is aimed at children, specifically those in the age range of six to 11.
For the uninitiated, Costume Quest follows the story of four children–Reynold, Wren, Everett, and Lucy–who don Halloween costumes that each carry with them unique powers. Each costume gives the kids the ability to transform into the creature or person that they are meant to look like. In the process, they also gain abilities associated with their costume to defeat monsters that the kids might come across.
Here’s the official description of the series via press release:
The show stars four kids facing off against the dark forces lurking in the shadows of their sleepy town of Auburn Pines. To overcome obstacles and achieve their goals, they must learn to unlock and master the magical powers of supernormal costumes—with each costume is a new set of transformations and powers.
As someone who loves both Costume Quest and its sequel, which released in 2014, I think this series looks adorable. I’m also a big fan of the animations themselves. Even though this series seems to be more aimed for kids, I might end up checking it out myself.
Below you can find an official trailer for Costume Quest in addition to some screenshots from the show.
