Subject: Futurama Becomes Console Title

Fans of the weekly cartoon Futurama rejoice! There's a console game in the work based on the characters from the show, and best of all, it's being developed for PS2, Xbox, and the GameCube, so nobody gets left out, woot! What's the premise of the game? In a word:

The game's story--which was written by the team responsible for the TV series--will see the player going up against an evil businesswoman named Mom who, after purchasing Planet Express Deliveries from Professor Farnsworth, now owns over half of the earth. As the planet's new supreme ruler, Mom plans to enslave humanity and turn the earth itself into a gigantic warship.
If you'd rather skip all the hoopla and catch a glimpse of it, GameSpot has 10 screencaps from the game. It's currently slated for a Sprint 2003 release.
