When Midway acquired the rights to make games based on the Adult Swim suite of programs, it was almost a given that it would tap one of the brand's most popular programs--Aqua Teen Hunger Force--for inspiration. Today, Midway finally confirmed those suspicions.
First let out of the bag by ATHF creator Dave Willis, the game will feature the crime-fighting fast-food products playing "combat golf" and cart racing in the spectacularly titled Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. Zombie Ninja Pro-Am will be released as a PlayStation 2 exclusive this fall.
The original storyline sees Frylock--a carton of French fries--admitted to a prestigious country club. Master Shake--a milkshake--then tries to impress the club members, which leads Meatwad--a ball of ground meat--to follow suit. Hilarity ensues.
Few details have been released on the actual gameplay, but Midway says it will combine "action-adventure combat golf" and cart racing, and that the trio will battle villains and other characters from the show.
In a statement, the twisted creators of the show, Willis and Matt Maiellaro, said, "This golden chalice represents a new age in gaming, the likes of which has never before been seen on this planet. The weak will tremble at the awareness of our full color, hand-made graphics!"
