155w ago - The Fancy Pants Adventures Creator Brad Borne has confirmed today that the PSN title will be heading to PlayStation Network for fans in Spring 2011.
To quote: I'm crazy excited to be here to talk about The Fancy Pants Adventures. I created the first game in Flash while I was in college, and now, many years later, the series is making the jump to console.
It's a dream come true for me, I really couldn't be more excited to give you guys the best game that EA, Over The Top and I could possibly create.
I grew up playing video games, and I love knowing that players are finally going to experience The Fancy Pants Adventures in that classic video gaming zen, on a comfy sofa, with a controller in their hands.
One of the most fun aspects of creating the Flash game was engaging the community and the fans. That is incredibly important to me and something I absolutely want to be able to continue in the move to the PS3.
What's also awesome today is that instead of just talking about the game, I'm able to let everyone who's interested CHECK OUT the Fancy Pants Man's latest adventure before release!!
