A couple days ago, Electronic Arts posted (then un-posted) a countdown clock leading to a new game. We thought it was a game based on The Simpsons. Today, EA made it official: A new Simpson's game is coming. Working title: THE SIMPSONS GAME .
Here's what we know about the game:
- Features a sprawling storyline crafted by the TV show’s Emmy Award-winning writers.
- The action-comedy game will also feature the full cast of voice actors from the TV show who will reprise their roles.
- The Plot: "Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa use exciting, all-new powers to save the world from rising chaos. To help the Simpsons, gamers at home must journey through all of Springfield (as well as vast worlds beyond!), vanquish an amazing array of villains, and fight their way through parodies of multiple popular games."
- THE SIMPSONS GAME is scheduled for release in Fall 2007 for the PLAYSTATION 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
“Our goal in developing THE SIMPSONS GAME is to create the most original game ever, which is a lofty goal and only possible given the close collaboration with The Simpsons creative team,” said Scot Amos, Executive Producer of the project. “We’re also especially proud of the game’s warm visual feel, which captures – for the first time ever in a game – the look of the TV show.” Added Amos, “As Comic Book Guy says, ‘Best. Simpsons Game. Ever!’”
We think a parody of videogames with the unique Simpson's sensibility could be delicious. We'll share any new info, screens, videos, etc, with you as soon as we get 'em!
