Midway Teams Up with Cartoon Network for Aqua Teen PS2 Game

aqua_teen_ps2.JPGFile this under the “Now I HAVE seen everything” department: Midway is currently developeing a PlayStation 2 game based on the popular Cartoon Network Adult Swin show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Set to hit stores this fall, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am is, according to the moderately wackier than usual press release, “an epic, action-adventure combat golf, cart racing game that gives fans an opportunity to experience the Aqua Teen universe in a whole new way.” Of course, the upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film hitting a theater near you April 13 will take care of your non-interactive eyeball/brain needs, but back to that press release…

Oh hell, I’ll just run the bulk of it as is:

“When Frylock is admitted to the prestigious Jersey Pines Golf Club, 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.”

“We are thrilled to be bringing the hilarious antics of Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force to a one of kind gaming experience,” said Christina Miller, VP of Consumer Products for Cartoon Network Enterprises, the network’s global merchandising division. “This game will set a new standard for crime-fighting, golf-obsessed, food battles.”

“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.”

That had me cracking up for a while after I read it. Anyway, we’re looking forward (well, at least I am) to seeing how this one turns out, so expect an update or two as the game progresses.
