New Futurama mobile game is on its way, along with original animations


We've known that game dev Jam City has been working on a mobile Futurama title since back in February, and that game's just gotten a little more solid with the release of its first teaser trailer. Players will visit New New York and explore planets, nebulas and all manner of odd things expected from the wacky universe of Futurama. While traversing the depths of space, players will fight alien enemies in retro arcade-style combat, rendered in lovely 16-bit graphics, and explore unusual lands in which their choices determine their fate. "Whether you're counseling an alien overlord on Omicron Persei 8 or battling rogue robots on the streets of Chapek 9, exploring this insane universe and interacting with its denizens will be a blast".

"I'm proud to say that Futurama lives!"

Despite the fact it's been four years since Futurama was taken off air, it's still as popular as ever - and is now being made into a mobile video game for all of the fans who miss Fry, Leela, Amy and Bender.

The game will basically be a collection RPG kind of game, where you'll explore, collect items, level up your characters to do more things, explore and possibly help save New New York, and a bunch of other stuff that looks like it may have freemium features.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will be available to download "soon" through the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
