Watch a trailer for the Costume Quest cartoon

The original Costume Quest is an underrated Double Fine classic, an homage to JRPGs dressed up for Halloween in which kids use the powers of their robot suits and unicorn outfits to fight monsters disguised as adults. (The sequel was less great.) Now Frederator Studios, the people behind Adventure Time and the Netflix Castlevania series, are turning it into a cartoon. 

The animated series will debut on Amazon's Prime Video service on March 8. The trailer makes it look a bit different conceptually to the games, with magical costumes coming from a mysterious shop rather than ordinary costumes being brought to life through the Power of Imagination alone. Also the monsters are powered up by nougat. 

As well as the trailer above, you can watch the opening titles below.

Jody Macgregor

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
