Comic-Con 2014: Patrick Stewart, Bryan Cranston, and Other Celebs Come to Family Guy Mobile Game
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff gets a handful of celebrities in a new update to coincide with this week's San Diego Comic-Con.
Publisher Fox Digital Entertainment and developer TinyCo, who made Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, are celebrating this week's San Diego Comic-Con by bringing some pretty big names to their game. The title, out now on iOS and Android devices, will also get a Comic-Con makeover in a new update.
Seven actors and actresses are coming to The Quest for Stuff, and their characters will be added in an update coming soon. You can see the full list of celebrities below:
- Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Saving Private Ryan)
- Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation, X-Men films)
- Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Pacific Rim)
- George Takei (Star Trek: The Original Series)
- Felicia Day (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fallout: New Vegas)
- Stan Lee (co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, and others)
- Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Halo 3: ODST)
You'll soon be able to interact with these celebrities in-game. According to a press release, Comic-Con International comes to Quahog, the town where Family Guy takes place. As a result, Family Guy character Stewie is turned into a monster and you must fight against him with the help of the celebrities. "Patrick Stewart, Bryan Cranston, and Stan Lee, and more popular icons arrive just in time to train Peter, Lois, Chris, and Quagmire to become real superheroes," the developer explains. "Players will need to use these newfound superpowers to save the day and restore order to the town."
This isn't the first time a developer has done something like this. In June, Nintendo made Shaquille O'Neal, Christina Aguilera, and Shaun White Miis available for use in the 3DS game Tomodachi Life.
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. The update goes live for iOS devices on July 24, and for Android on July 31. Do you enjoy when celebrities make cameos in games? Let us know in the comments!
