There’s no doubt that The Simpsons is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. Following its success, video games patterned on it became a hit as well. Many would likely agree that the best among them was The Simpsons Hit & Run. Recently, developers have been releasing remakes of all-time favorite games. These include Final Fantasy VIII, Crash Team Racing, and Resident Evil 2 among many others. That said, there’s still hope for fans to get their hands on The Simpsons Hit & Run remastered version. In fact, it’s actually possible as per the game’s producer, Vlad Ceraldi.
“I could see it on multiple different types of platforms as a remake or remaster. It would have to take the parties who are in charge of the property to want that to happen and someone out there to decide that they were going to go out and do it. But absolutely, it would be fun to explore those characters and that universe again, that work again.”
It’s been over 16 years since the video game’s original release in 2003. If you grew up playing this game, then we’re sure that you’ve been looking forward to this remake news all your life. While it may remind you of how old you are, it will also relive unforgettable childhood memories for sure. And yes, we live for these kinds of nostalgic games.
The game’s plot revolved around the Simpsons’ and Apu’s quest to discover and defeat an alien conspiracy led by Kang and Kodos. Fans can still surely recall countless hours toiled away driving around Springfield. Nevertheless, this game’s one for the books. And most of us can probably agree that it was a big part of our childhood. Back then, Ceraldi knew for a fact that the game was going to be special. True enough, the game encompassed players of varying age groups and withstood the test of time.
“I think it’s a game that kids could play, adults could play, anyone who was fans of the show could try and laugh and have fun with.”
However, we advise fans not to get your hopes too high just yet, no matter how promising all these seem. Sadly, the producer admitted that the team only had the discussions within the four corners of a pub. While we often hear people say that drunk talk is real talk, we can never be too sure.
“It’s come up before in discussion but not seriously, usually at the pub, just talking about the idea of some of the magic that was captured and the potential ability to recapture it in a new way with a different audience, with a different generation of devices.”
But, hey, at least the thought of remaking the game came into their minds. We can hold onto that for now. Hopefully, Ceraldi’s team would have the remake released by the time PlayStation 5 hits the stores next holiday 2020. Indeed, that would be the best gift for any Simpsons fan.
If we dont get The Simpsons Hit & Run remastered on the PS5 what is the point in video games even existing anymore. pic.twitter.com/vi8K71EUy9
