Matt Groening Revives Futurama In Upcoming Mobile Game, Worlds Of Tomorrow

Fox Interactive and mobile developer TinyCo. announced today via press release a new mobile game set in the Futurama franchise.

Titled Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, the game will feature original content from series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. TinyCo. is also working alongside Rough Draft Studios, who originally animated the show, in order to get the look and feel of the game right. "We've got completely new stories from the original writers, cast, and animators," says Cohen in the press release. "This is the real Futurama deal."

An exact release date for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow has not been set, but interested players can sign up for updates at the official site. Android users can also pre-register for the game on Google Play.

Our Take
While Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow still doesn't have a release date, and little is known about the gameplay, fans should be comforted knowing that the two main showrunners are behind the project. Little measures like getting the animation style of a show correct can also go a long way toward making fans happy.

HBO Documentary Beware The Slenderman Debuts Tomorrow

Beware the Slenderman is an upcoming documentary about the creepy internet sensation surrounding Slenderman, how it came to be, and the real-life violent acts that were inspired by it. The film premiers tomorrow on HBO.

Slenderman is a fictional character depicted as a tall, faceless man in a suit who traumatizes or abducts his victims, which primarily include children.

Three years ago, two 12-year-old girls stabbed another young girl deep in a forest in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The victim was stabbed 19 times, but managed to recover from her wounds. The two girls behind the violent act were arrested, and they told authorities that Slenderman had told them to commit the crime. This HBO documentary is meant to hone in on this strange and troubling event, as well as look deeper into the digital folklore of Slenderman.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Slenderman originated on an online forum in 2009 and quickly went viral. He has starred in video games as well, including Slender: The Eight Pages and Slender: The Arrival.

Nintendo Planning Fire Emblem Direct Presentation Tomorrow

Nintendo has announced that it will hold a Fire Emblem Direct presentation tomorrow to run through upcoming titles in the series.

The Direct takes place on Wednesday, January 18 at 2 p.m. Pacific time, and can be seen at this site.

It was recently announced that the Nintendo Switch is getting a Hyrule Warriors-esque Fire Emblem title called Fire Emblem Warriors, so we imagine we'll hear more about that title. A mobile app is also in the works, so that's a good candidate for the presentation as well. Hopefully there are some more surprises in store for fans.

Mass Effect Andromeda Producer Teases “Info” For Tomorrow Morning

Michael Gamble, producer on the Mass Effect series and the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda, tweeted out a tease for "info," presumably new, is happening tomorrow for Mass Effect.

Gameble's full tweet reads, "Tomorrow morning. ~10 am PST. Got some info for you," followed by a link to masseffect.com. What exactly that information will be, is currently unclear.

Our Take
A new informational trailer, or release date news both seem like pretty good bets, but it could also be wider fiction details. As long as it is not an outline of DLC plans, or something similarly unspectacular, I will be happy.
