“American Dad!,” “Bob's Burgers,” “Family Guy,” “Futurama,” and “King of the Hill.” What do these popular shows have in common? Well, characters from all five are set to appear in a brand new mobile game called Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards.
Currently scheduled for a Q3 release, the iOS (and Android) game will indeed be a must-have for fans of the aforementioned shows. In it, gamers are set to be given “the unique ability to play as their favorite characters from each series,” a recent press release explained, “as they set out to create the ultimate show-themed deck and compete against friends and other players.” It's a collectible-card mobile game, this one, and it promises fun gameplay and tons of humor.
Rick Phillips, Executive Vice–President of Fox Digital Entertainment, said:
In Animation Throwdown, Peter Griffin will duke it out with Bob Belcher, or Leela, or even Hank Hill. Fans get to select their all-star lineup in this inventive, genre-bending game.
It's definitely an intriguing release, due mainly to the show-blending nature of its character set. Though for now, at least, little concerning the actual gameplay is known; little is given away in the press release, which talks a lot about the different shows but doesn't really mention how all five are going to work together in this title.
