The Simpsons Arcade Game Coming to XBL, PSN
The beloved 1991 beat 'em up will be getting a HD makeover. You can play as Homer, Marge, Bart or Lisa with support for four player online co-op. Modes include Quarters, Survival and Free Play. There's also some nice bonus material like being able to unlock the Japanese version of the game, posters, in-game flyers and character guides. No word on a price yet, but regardless, I think it's safe to say that fans will snatch this one up, no matter what the cost.
I'm not much of a Simpsons fan, and despite the fact that the series has been declining for over a decade, I still have fond memories of this arcade classic. I played it back in the arcades the same year it came out with my sister and a friend and it was a lot of fun. It will be nice to play it again without having to stand up. When I pick up a PS3, this will be one of the games I download.
