Simpsons: Hit And Run Producer Teases Potential Remaster
The producer behind The Simpsons: Hit And Run has said that he could see the game returning on different platforms as a remake or remaster.
For many of us, the classic game that launched 17 years ago (!) brings back some fond memories. If you weren’t old enough to be playing Grand Theft Auto III (GTA 3), The Simpsons: Hit And Run was the second-best thing. Arguably, it was superior in some elements but let’s save that conversation for a different day. It was received incredibly well by the masses, with recorded sales of over three million units worldwide. It also received the award for Fave Video Game at the 2004 Nickelodeon Australian Kids' Choice Awards. If that doesn’t scream success then we don’t know what does.
The game’s producer, Vlad Ceraldi, sat down with LADbible and teased a potential remaster that would possibly make all 80's/90's kids lose their damn minds.
He explained: “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.”
He added: “As far as why it stood 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…
“When you make something, sometimes you know you’ve made something special. This was one of the ones that we knew we hit the mark. We didn’t know it was going to sell as well as it did – we had high hopes, but it definitely hit its expectations.”
Well you can certainly say that again. Here, nearly 20 years later, we’re still talking about it. Fingers crossed for a remake soon.
