Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards will also see the worlds of Bob's Burgers and King of the Hill collide as players create the ultimate show-themed deck.

Stars of animated comedy series Family Guy, American Dad and King of the Hill are finally coming together in a first of its kind mobile game.

Developed by 20th Century Fox, the collectable-card mobile game allows fans to play as their favourite characters from five of the studio’s leading cartoon series that also includes Bob’s Burgers and Futurama.

Called Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards, the game challenges players to create the ultimate show-themed deck to compete against others in a series of battles.

The game has been created by Fox Digital Entertainment and GameStop’s mobile and web game publishing division, Kongregate.

“We are thrilled to bring together these five animated comedies for the first time in Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards,” said Emily Greer, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate.

“We are looking forward to integrating characters from these hit series in a unique and exciting way that fans of all he shows will really love.”

In Animation Throwdown, Peter Griffin will fight it out with Bob Belcher or Hank Hill while fans get to select an all-star line-up of popular characters from across Fox’s slate of series.

The title will launch in the third quarter on iOS and Android devices before hitting further platforms later in the year.
