Good news, everyone! Futurama, Matt Groening’s cartoon chronicle of the year 3000, will rise from the sitcom graveyard a third time as Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, an upcoming mobile game from TinyCo.
TinyCo is best known as the developer of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, and in addition to working with Groening, they’ve recruited Executive Producer David X. Cohen and the show’s original animators at Rough Draft Studios to help produce the game.
“Futurama is back, bigger and better than ever! Or possibly smaller and equally good. But either way, it’s back!” said Cohen. “We’ve got completely new stories from the original writers, cast, and animators. This is the real Futurama deal.”
“I love this game because it feels just like Futurama,” added Groening. “Except now you get to jab the characters in the face.”
TinyCo will unveil more details about Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow soon, and the game is expected to launch later this year for iOS, Android, and Amazon Fire devices.
