Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, and More Coming Together for New Game
All of the big Fox animated shows (except the biggest one) are combining in a Hearthstone-like card game.
There have been crossover events for Fox's hit animated shows, but now, a new video game is--for the first time--bringing together the worlds of Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, Bob's Burgers, and American Dad. That's all of the big Fox animated shows except The Simpsons (which has its own mobile game with EA called The Simpsons: Tapped Out).
The game is called Throwdown: The Quest for Cards, and it will be published by GameStop subsidiary Kongregate for mobile devices. As its name suggests, The Quest for Cards is a collectible card game in the vein of Hearthstone and Gwent, among others.
Players will build a deck of cards containing characters from the Fox shows, including Peter Griffin (Family Guy), Hank Hill (King of the Hill), and Leela (Futurama), among others. With a deck assembled, players can then square off against others for supremacy.
"We are thrilled to bring together these five animated comedies for the first time in Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards.” said Emily Greer, president and co-founder of Kongregate. “We are looking forward to integrating characters from these hit series in a unique and exciting way that fans of all the shows will really love."
Kongregate is co-developing The Quest for Cards alongside San Francisco based Chinzilla Games, which previously made Little Alchemist.
The game will be marketed on the Kongregate website, as well as on GameStop's own site (and through email blasts) and in its physical stores. Fox Digital Entertainment will also market the game. All of this is to stay, you will definitely know about the game.
The Quest for Cards is due out in Q3 for iOS and Android devices, with a release for "other platforms" to follow later. No gameplay footage or further details about how it plays have been announced yet; we'll bring you more information as it's announced.
It appears The Quest for Cards gets its name from the Family Guy game, The Quest for Stuff.
