Celebrate Futurama's Return With The Lost Xbox/PS2 Episode

The beloved sci-fi animated series Futurama returns tonight in the United States at 10:00pm ET on Comedy Central with new episodes, but before jumping into the rebirth of the series, take a step back and check out the so-called lost episode that is comprised of the cinematics from the 2003 video game for the Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2. Written by the original writers and featuring performances from the talented cast, this adventure takes Fry, Leela, Bender, and the rest across time and space to undo Professor Farnsworth's decision to sell Planet Express to Mom. The compiled scenes are featured as a special extra on the Beast With A Billion Backs DVD, but of course someone has placed it on YouTube in four parts. Be sure to check out the DVD version as well, as it has commentary from the creators that provide some insight on adapting the series into the gaming realm.

Update:

There was a Nintendo GameCube version of the game in some non-US regions as well.

OMG Futurama is coming back?!?! i thought it was dead.

It was dead, but then it got better. Comedy Central has ordered 26 new episodes, the first two of which premiere tonight.

couldn't resist:
Fry: I heard one time you single handedly defeated a horde of rampaging somethings in the something something system.
Zapp: The Killbots? A trifle. It was simply a matter of outsmarting them.
Fry: Wow, I never would've thought of that.
Zapp: You see the killbots have a preset kill limit; knowing their weakness I sent wave after wave of my own men at them until they reached their limit and shutdown.

Darn, I still need to watch the 3rd and 4th DVD movie.

Oh well, can't wait for the new episodes!

edit: "The compiled scenes are featured as a special extra on the Beast With A Billion Backs DVD"
Does anyone else own the DVD who didn't realize this?

Anyhoo...it was sort of like Family Guy, the dvd sales were so good and the demand was so high...that they decided to bring it back.

"And that's how I, Bender Bending Rodriguez, saved earth and am the greatest!" I can't WAIT!!!

Panthers2610d ago

And THATS why they call me Bender the Magnificent!

Is this taking place after they go through the big portal thing?

digitalivan2610d ago

The first episode relates to "Into the Wild Green Yonder" movie.

The game was actually pretty good from what I remember.

I was pumped to hear this show is coming back, I've about worn out my DVDs of seasons 1-5.

Hopefully it gets the attention it deserves this time so it can stick around.

LOVE the show, can't wait to see these new episodes! :)

Speaking of the game, I have the original xbox version and the controls have the X/Y axis reversed and there's no option in-game to change it. Is there a way to tell the 360 to NOT reverse the axis?
