The Simpsons Game Announced

by JW


If you were one of those people who saw the story floating around about the Simpsons webpage on the EA website that mocked the GTA IV countdown (Simpsons XXII), then you already now about this. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t worry — it’s nothing.

EA announced today “The Simpsons Game” for just about every console under the sun. Very little was revealed about the game in the Press Release, but what we do know is reassuring: The entire cast of the show will lend their many voices to the game, and apparently the Simpson family will have superpowers.

Read the official press release after the break.

EA Announces The Simpsons Game

The World’s Favorite Animated Family Comes To Consoles and Handhelds This Fall!

Redwood Shores, Calif., - May 9, 2007 – Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced the upcoming release of THE SIMPSONS GAME (working title). Created in partnership with Gracie Films and Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising, THE SIMPSONS GAME features a hilarious, sprawling, and mind-busting storyline crafted by the TV show’s Emmy Award-winning writers. The action-comedy will also feature the full cast of voice actors from the TV show who will reprise their roles for the game.

In THE SIMPSONS GAME, 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.

“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!’”

“The EA group was so enormously talented and beyond belief energetic that I am thinking of suing for second hand exhaustion,” said James L. Brooks, Executive Producer of “The Simpsons.”

Under development by EA’s Redwood Shores Studio, THE SIMPSONS GAME is scheduled for release in Fall 2007 for the PLAYSTATION®3, PlayStation®2, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable), Xbox 360™, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
