Midway has confirmed plans to release a PlayStation 2 game starring Adult Swim’s Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake the beautifully named Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. Scheduled for release this fall, the game – let’s call it ATHFZNPA – follows the trio of sentient fast-food items in an “epic, action-adventure combat golf cart racing game.” Game of the year candidate? With this AND a feature film slated for April 13, 2007 is certainly looking up.
The game centers on the events that follow Frylock’s admission to the prestigious Jersey Pines Golf Club, after which Master Shake decides to show the uppity members that he is also just as good (and uppity) and deserves a place in their exclusive club. Meatwad is, of course, persuaded to join in, and the three crime-fighting food products use golf clubs and a variety of other weapons in ways not intended as they battle numerous villains, fan favorites and other show characters.
“Aqua Teen Hunger Force is a unique and completely hilarious property,” said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. “We are working closely with Aqua Teen creators Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis to bring the tone of the TV show and movie into a video game.”
“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 awesomeness of our full color, hand-made graphics!” said creators Maiellaro and Willis simultaneously and in unison.
