Now fans of Cartoon Network's Emmy-winning series Adventure Time can experience the Land of Ooo in a whole new way. Adventure Time: Magic Man's Head Games is the first-ever virtual reality game based on a television franchise (and Turner's second foray into the realm of VR).

“Core to Cartoon Network’s strategy is our commitment to innovate and expand our content offerings and distribution platforms so that fans can immerse themselves in our brands and characters however and whenever they choose," said Christina Miller, President and GM, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Boomerang, in the announcement. "This first-to-market virtual reality game joins a roster of other industry-leading apps and digital experiences that have made Cartoon Network the first-choice for plurals looking for highly-engaging games and new content experiences."

The game's original story is fully voiced by the cast of the television series and allows fans to become part of the narrative.  The gameplay is inspired by classic 3D platformers, while having unique combat and movement mechanics that take advantage of the very best VR technology.
