#SDCC 2015 News! "Legend of the Gnome Gemulets" Gravity Falls game

Good News, Everyone!

Not only did Gravity Falls' epic trailer for the upcoming episodes totally rock this year's SDCC in my eyes, but they also announced at the same GF panels we would be getting our first Gravity Falls video game!

Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets!

And what's more, it appears to be a sidescroller Action-RPG in the same vein as that Adventure Time game I really liked (think Zelda 2).

Here's the official trailer:

And a few screenshots:

Exactly the way I imagined it! I'm sure a lot of fans would have prefered a huge open-world 3D-type of game on the main consoles, but without a big enough budget I don't think they could pull off a decent tie-in game adaptation. And this looks pretty good and fun if you ask me.

The official announcement:

Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, powered by the acclaimed UbiArt Framework game engine, brings the look and feel of the show to Nintendo 3DS systems. Lush backgrounds and beautiful graphics allow you to explore your favorite places from the show, such as the Mystery Shack and the Gnome Forest, like never before!
Help the siblings work together, with dual character gameplay. Switch between characters at any time and use their unique powers and abilities to complement one another:
• Dipper is bestowed with Gnome Battle Cuffs which deliver powerful punches at close range, and keeps his trusty flashlight by his side to shed light on the many mysteries in Gravity Falls.
• Mabel wields the Fleece of Bedazzlement that lets her whip her sweater sleeves to attack monsters from afar, and her grappling hook is at the ready to help access areas otherwise out of reach.
Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets features a new, original adventure. Unravel the mystery to learn new lore about the inhabitants of Gravity Falls and unlock secrets of the town’s past.
MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH CREATOR ALEX HIRSCHCreator and executive producer of Gravity Falls, Alex Hirsch, brings the show’s signature humor and fan-favorite elements to the game. Involved throughout the development of the game on character design, artwork, story, and script, Alex has helped to create an authentic experience for fans.
The game's coming on 3DS later this year, on November 3!
