It was basically the safe-for-work version of Grand Theft Auto, so there’s no denying that if you grew up with a Playstation 2 in your home then you probably played Simpsons: Hit & Run.
So imagine the excitement at hearing that the producer of the original game has said that there is a likely chance that a remastered version could be making its way to the public sooner rather than never at all.
Speaking with LADbible, Ceraldi weighed in on the possibility of the title making a comeback and making all of our dreams come true.
“I could see it on multiple different types of platforms as a remake or remaster,” said Ceraldi.
“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 went on to add: “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.”
Originally launching back in 2003, The Simpsons: Hit & Run is one of the most-loved classics of our childhood. Heavily influenced by Grand Theft Auto 3, the title featured solid gameplay set against the adored backdrop of The Simpsons. It’s an unshakeable classic and players have been clamouring for a remake or sequel for years now.
Let’s hope it’s going to make a comeback at some point down the line…
