Costume Quest Preview
March 8, 2019 at 9:39pm
Costume Quest is a show that's based on the Double Fine Productions' game that carries the same name. It takes the concept of the game, and adapts it for the younger audience. The particular target audience here is noted as ages six to eleven years old. It'll arrive on Amazon Prime on March 8, 2019 and hopes to be a kids animated hit.
It was supported through Frederator Studios, the powerhouse behind franchises including Castlevania, The Fairly Oddparents, and Adventure Time. The show follows four kids living in a place called Auburn Pines. Each of the kids end up receiving a special costume, and these grant them special powers to take the form of what they've come up with. It's an interesting concept and one that works.
With this preview I was able to check out the first episode of the series. Traditionally we review seasons here, but I quite liked this and it is certainly game oriented with the series being based off the games. That is, at least in the core spirit. It's a well animated presentation featuring a group of kids that will certainly go on wacky adventures. They're battling local monsters and you get a taste for the action through the first episode that I was able to check out. It's not a whole lot to go from, but you can get the basics of the squad composition and the general concept of what's going on.
There's special costumes, the kids get powers and they'll need to deal with a hidden threat within the town. There also appears to be some mysterious behind the scenes things being teased. Just small glimpses at other characters that might be in the mix. Anyways, I enjoyed it for the most part. The animation quality is solid, unique and the characters seem to have distinct personalities. Should be a good option for the target audience.
