If you are a fan of both Family Guy as well as video games, then you will be excited to hear that a new Family Guy video game will be released in September of this year. The game will be titled Back to the Multiverse and is in fact is already listed on Amazon as a placeholder.
The game revolves around the Road to the Multiverse episode of Family Guy from the Eighth season. In the episode, Brian and Stewie set out on an adventure through a multitude of different alternate universes via Stewie’s magical universe transportation remote. As they travel through the fabrics of reality, they eventually get stuck in a universe where humans are subservient to dogs. Brian is eager to further explore this universe, but Stewie is ready to leave. This results in the two fighting over the remote and accidently destroying it. They are forced to locate the dog version of the Griffen family in order to retrieve dog-Stewie’s universe remote to allow them to get home.
I am very excited for this game. I have always been drawn to games like The Simpsons: Hit and Run as well as many of the older Family guy games and I feel as if this is the perfect setting for the next installment in the Family Guy video game series. I think that the setting is perfect as the Multiverse episode is one of my favorites. The game will be released on both Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3 on September 25th, 2012.
