Guild Wars 2 was my favorite release of 2012 and I still adore this game this year. I haven’t played it as much since the new year rolled around with all of the games I’ve been busy playing and reviewing, but I still absolutely love this game. Back on April 1st, ArenaNet released this trailer for the “Super Adventure Box,” which really just looked too good to be true and was summarily regarded as an April Fool’s joke. As it turns out, not only is it real, but it’s amazing.
Below I provided some videos of me and Gary Swaby playing the first two zones of the Super Adventure Box for your viewing pleasure. There’s a princess, retro graphics, innocently slaughtered wildlife and tons of awesome platforming. Keep in mind, what you’re seeing is our blind impressions of the content. We hadn’t played it before – hope you enjoy!
Also make sure you check out Rytlock’s Critter Rampage, a retro-style 2D platformer that runs in your browser right here. I have also provided several wonderful screenshots from my time with the Super Adventure Box down below!
What did you think of the Super Adventure Box? Does it look lime something you hope to see more of? This content will no longer be available on April 30th, so make sure you check it out while you have the chance. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
