Futurama is one of the most beloved and often canceled animated shows out there, but fans will get to experience new stories soon, in game mode. Bender, Fry, Professor Farnsworth, and the rest of the Planet Express crew, will be back, in the mobile game Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, coming soon to Android and iOS.
The game is being developed by TinyCo, who’ve previously made Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. But the game developers aren’t just going at it alone in this endeavor. Matt Groening himself has contributed new work and stories for the game, alongside David X. Cohen, the show’s executive producer, and a good chunk of the original cast. Groening praised the game saying “I love this game because it feels just like Futurama. Except now you get to jab the characters in the face.” Cohen, also did his best to convince fans saying:
Futurama is back, bigger and better than ever! Or possibly smaller and equally good. But either way, it’s back! We’ve got completely new stories from the original writers, cast, and animators. This is the real Futurama deal.
The game doesn’t have a release date just yet, nor do we really know what the gameplay will be like. However, you can sign-up to be notified once it becomes available here. The title will be available on Android, iOS, and Amazon’s Appstore.
