The final episode of Futurama aired in 2013, but Fry, Leela, Bender, Professor Farnsworth, and the rest of the Planet Express still live on in our hearts. And by “hearts” we mean “a Futurama free-to-play mobile game.”
Starring the heads of Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Stephen Hawking and George Takei, the latest trailer for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow shows that, no matter what the game actually is, the patented Futurama humor will be intact.
The game closely resembles developer TinyCo’s Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, a mobile and Facebook game in which players helped Peter Griffin and other residents of Quahog complete tasks to rebuild their town. Previous trailers for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow showcased RPG elements in which the Planet Express crew battle against Lrrr, Ruler of Omicron Persei 8, and other malevolent forces throughout the universe in a brand-new adventure written by series creators Matt Groening (you know, the Simpsons guy) and David X. Cohen. Players will complete tasks to earn rewards that will allow them to build their very own New New York.
It looks like the original cast is reprising their roles from the Fox and Comedy Central series as well, with the voices of Billy West (Fry), Katey Sagal (Leela), Lauren Tom (Amy), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Lrrr) all appearing in past and present trailers.
Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is coming to iOS and Android devices on June 29th, but you can preregister for the game to receive an exclusive in-game gift for free.
