Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am

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.

Possibly the finest box art the world has ever known.

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!"
