Animated characters from Fox get their own mobile card game
Kongregate, Gamestop’s mobile subsidiary, and Fox Digital Entertainment have announced a new mobile card game Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards for iOS and Android.
Videogame crossovers combining the animated worlds of television shows is not a new idea but Twentieth Century Fox will be joining in.
The card collecting game will include characters from American Dad!, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Futurama and King of the Hill. Players collect cards, as most CCGs go, to build decks and face-off against one another.
While many of the shows included in the game are popular on Fox, the studio's most popular show, The Simpsons, will not be included in this game. The show already has its own mobile game with EA, Tapped Out.
Kongregate is leading the game design, but it is being co-developed by Chinzilla and Synapse Games.
The game is set to be released for iOS and Android but will eventually hit other platforms as well. While there is no release date set as of yet, fans should expect the mobile game sometime in late Summer or early Fall.
