Regular Show: Mordecai & Rigby in 8-bit Land

Regular Show: Mordecai & Rigby In 8-Bit Land Trailer Exudes Nostalgia

Mordecai and Rigby spend a lot of time playing video games in Regular Show, but this will be the first time they appear as the stars of their own video game.

The first trailer for the game offers a healthy dose of gameplay and shows what we can expect from the 3DS platformer. There's just something about it – mostly the music and sound effects – that makes it look like a game you played on your friend's Sega Genesis so many years ago.

Regular Show: Mordecai & Rigby in 8-Bit Land is coming to Nintendo 3DS, via retail or eShop download, on October 29.

    Although I am sad the game isn't in actual 8-bit, it looks like it will be a decent enough platformer. Hopefully it spices up the gameplay a little more though, looks a tad simplistic from the preview. Either way, still looks better than that new Adventure Time game.
  • I'm definitely excited for this. It's nice to see that some effort has been put into this and the Adventure Time games, unlike many other games based on cartoons.
  • Those are some pretty sick chiptunes.
  • I hope cartoon network doesn't stop making these games. I would like to see a 3D Adventure Time and Regular Show game next. I feel like Adventure time would totally do a game like ocarina of time or wind waker from the zelda like games. Regular show could do something like ed edd and eddy missedventures.

  • Whhhooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
  • The Destroyer of Worlds! Good show! If Cartoon Network keeps putting out Regular Show and Adventure Time games, I might have to consider getting a 3DS (especially since they always look like they have really solid, retro gameplay).
  • Would've loved if they actually did it with the graphical restrictions of the mastersystem :(

    Sadly they didn't.

  • So...its pretty much the first adventure time game then...sigh.

  • Why are games based off of Cartoon Network shows all references to the NES days?! Kids nowadays don't even know what Contra is! Also that is NOT 8-bit
  • I like that you can switch between Mordecai & Rigby on the fly.

  • There better be a ton of overt shout-outs to the Sega Master System in this, Wayforward! Because, seriously, they never call it that, but it's CLEARLY an SMS on the show. Very noticeable if you're old school, since the champ during the 8-bit era was the NES and very, very few people even HEARD of Sega before the Genesis. The guys behind Regular Show are super savvy gamers to go the SMS route.

  • Mordecai turned into an aircraft... WHHHOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

  • Interesting.

  • Dope

  • Dope
  • Awesomeness

  • I have more hope in this than the new AT game. I hope they have a collector's edition.

  • Hell Yeauh! The best cartoon out. I'll def grab this up
