A new teaser trailer for the upcoming mobile game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow has just been released.
The new game originals the orignal voice cast of the show:
The game was:
Created in partnership with Futurama creator and executive producer Matt Groening and his Curiosity Company, along with executive producer David X. Cohen, several original series writers, and Rough Draft Studios.
Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will blend simulation, combat, galactic exploration, and choose-your-own-adventure mechanics together to bring the escapades of the Planet Express crew to life. The game features two main settings: New New York, which focuses on simulation and character progression gameplay, and Space Adventures, in which players will explore and battle their way through planets, nebulas, and other weird stuff across the Futurama universe.
In New New York, players will focus on rescuing characters, collecting special items and materials, expanding their characters’ capabilities by leveling them up and crafting ability-defining character outfits, and tackling story-driven quests. Events that occur in New New York will often move the game’s overarching narrative forward, by allowing players to assemble a crew of their favorite Futurama characters and take to the stars for Space Adventures. While traversing the depths of space, players will fight alien enemies in retro arcade-style combat, rendered in beautiful 16-bit graphics, and explore strange lands in which their choices determine their fate.
Matt Groening said:
“I’m proud to say that ‘Futurama’ lives!…..In mobile-video-game teaser trailer form, anyway. If you squint, it’s kind of like a little episode!”
David X. Cohen
“Working on this new Futurama animation has been a thrilling adventure…….I finally understand how Neil Armstrong must have felt when he first landed on the lunar surface, watched some funny cartoons on the control screen, and did whatever else was on his schedule that day.”
Josh Yguado, Co-Founder, President and COO of Jam City said:
“The Futurama universe is chock-full of exotic planets inhabited by wacky creatures (and Smizmars)…Whether you’re counseling an alien overlord on Omicron Persei 8 or battling rogue robots on the streets of Chapek 9, exploring this crazy universe and interacting with its denizens will be a blast.”
