Sure, it's a sad snafu that cost a few million dollars and some mass hysteria, but the Boston Mooninites bomb scare has done wonders for the Aqua Teen Hunger Franchise. The movie, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theatres has been pushed back to allow for a much wider release and now an upcoming PlayStation 2 game will surely sell a few extra copies because of the fiasco.
In an interview with G4, Aqua Teen co-creator Dave Willis has described the title as "extreme combat golf," with Frylock being accepted at New Jersey course and Master Shake looking to destroy it. Also promised were violence, villains, and sawed-off shotguns. "Carl's gigantic crabs are lurking in the sandtraps," he said, "and the Brownie monsters, and obviously the Mooninites. It's sort of a racing, violent golf game."
Though Willis and co-creator Matt Maiellaro tend to be coy and dishonest in interviews, it's all we have at this point. Truth be told, the extreme golf sounds fun. Whatever it may be, the Aqua Teen Hunger Force game is slated for release later this year, either in the summer or 3rd quarter, on the PlayStation 2.
