Just in time for Comic-Con International, iOS game Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff is rolling out an appropriately themed update, adding a whole new storyline and cameos from a bevy of geek-chic celebrities.
The new plot line concerns (surprise, surprise!) a comic convention that comes to Quahog. Chaos naturally ensues, and Stewie somehow gets transformed into the evil octopus monster seen in the above picture. To fight him, Quahog enlists the help of an all-star celeb cast including Patrick Stewart, Bryan Cranston, Stan Lee, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion.
With their help, the Griffins and supporting characters are turned into real superheroes, who can use their new-found powers to save the day and restore order to the town.
It’s all appropriately silly stuff (“Because why not, it’s Family Guy,” explain the developers) but if you’re a fan of the game or series — and excited about Comic-Con International — it’s well worth getting hold of the iOS update, which arrives July 24.
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff can be downloaded for free from the App Store, available for all iOS devices running iOS 5.0 and above. You can check out our video review of the game here.
