The Simpsons Arcade
The Simpsons Arcade Game Heads to XBLA on Friday?!
Written By
View author's profile

In a strange turn of events, it appears that this week will see an additional Xbox Live Arcade title, as Konami has posted on its Facebook page that The Simpsons Arcade Game will be heading onto the Marketplace on Friday, well ahead of the airing of The Simpsons 500th episode on Sunday, February 19th.

The 1991 arcade classic will be coming to XBLA, complete with four-player co-op play, just like the old coin-op game, as well as challenging new modes and a raft of bonus content.

The Simpsons Arcade Game will apparently be launching on the Xbox Live Arcade from February 3rd for 800 Microsoft Points. Woo hoo! EDIT: It's worth noting that The Simpsons Arcade Game is probably more likely to be out on February 8th, as per the established XBLA release pattern. We'll wait and see...

I was on holiday in 92 when I stumbled across a Simpsons cabinet. It had glitched and had 99 credits in it. I completed the game with just 1 credit left. I don't remember much about the game, but I remember

A) it was hard
B) I was on a lads weekend in pontins
C) it took me so long to complete that by the time I got to the bar, they were already hammered.
D) none of them were gamers so regaling them with my 99 credits/finishing the game story was of any interest
E) I eventually got hammered anyway. This may be why I don't remember much of the game

20 years on and I'll be playing it with my two sons. How times change.

Seriously guys, make sure you play the trial first. A lot of you are going to be diappointed if you just download it anyway due to your nostalgia.

It hasn't held up well, and is totally outdated in the Simpsons universe (though with the quality of the new episodes, thats not a bad thing)

I expect a lot of buyers remorse for this game - you have been warned!!

@#62 - Why would they need to promote an old Arcade title?

The dashboard's gonna shove it in your face anyway.

I feel like there's little to no reason to even promote XBLA titles for the most part. I can't remember the last time I saw big promotion for any other than the House Party this month.

This definitely came sooner....WAY sooner than I expected. All the more fun for me. Now I can finally beat this game. I was 10 in '92 and this game was one of the ones that I couldn't beat due to shortage of quarters. LOL

I've already commented, but frankly it concerns me how many people think this game is good. It's not. This game is beyond terrible, it's like "terrible: the next generation." When the last Simpsons game came out, the producers and writers admitted that they hadn't put much thought/effort into previous games, obviously including this one. I have two words for you: buyers remorse. Save your dough for "I Am Alive."

Facts:
The Genesis/SNES would not have been capable of an accurate port of this game.

People who made the last Simpsons game had nothing to do with this game so their comments about their previous games sucking don't apply to this.

This game is fun, some people may be over-nostalgic about it. It is very simple compared to other beat 'em ups like AvP or Streets of Rage, but this is still amongst the best of the more simplistic beat 'em ups with a focus on lots of players on screen.

@81

I disagree. The SNES versions of Knights of the Round and The King of Dragons were pretty faithful to the arcade versions. Final Fight SNES sucked, but that's because it was rushed and censored. The only thing a SNES version of the Simpsons i'd expect being downgraded on a significant level would be going from 4-players to 2-players.

The SNES has some of the best 2D brawlers I've ever played on it. Check out The Ninja Warriors.

@89 Have you even played this game? Or did you have no friends in the arcade to play with, thus making it too hard for you?
Konami hasn't had the Simpsons license aside from this game I believe, so the makers of the last game had shit to do with this one. Do you think Groening actually writes the games? He puts his name on it and lets Simpsons name get used, and helps fund it a bit. That's what a producer does. I have producer credits on a few movies, but I didnt have a say in the direction said movie takes. That boils down to the company making the game, and since EA has been doing Simpsons games since PS1 or so, blame them for the shitty games that have come out since then.
You can piss on this game all you want, to each their own, but you arent going to change anyones mind that wants to play this game again with friends without having to plug quarters in a slot.
And seeing as to how this game got a 72 on metacritic for ios version, Im sure one running on a better gaming system with online multiplayer will score better than the "beyond terrible" game you claim it is.

@90 my friends and i played sports, we didn't hang out in the arcade and play bad video games. Producer credits on a few movies? Direct to dvd doesn't count. I mean, you can try to sound like the smartest guy in the room, but it was a joint interview with Matt Groening and a couple of writers on the show, who wrote the newest game. They admitted that they hadn't had any thought or input on the last games and this was the first good one, by proxy they're saying this arcade game was a mistake, like you were.

Don't mind #90. He is always like that.

OT: This game is, and always has been, garbage.

Wtf are you talking about trolling monkey? I barely post on this damn site, unlike you posting under everything to say "this sucks"

I didnt say they were great movies, just telling you what a producer does. The newest game, which was good, was written by groening and ONE OTHER PERSON? Who had nothing to do with a simpsons game ever. Closest he was to simpsons was "assistant to producers", which like your low income job at mcdonalds or wherever means "goon who gets us food and does trivial tasks for us." Research is your friend.
The main point is you pretty much admitted you never played the game...so what the fuck do you know?
