Simpsons arcade game, a classic four-player game that I personally spent countless quarters growing up, gets a new release in celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary thanks to Arcade1Up.
In the game, first released by Konami in 1991, you and up to three of your friends fight with waves of oncoming villains like Homer, Marge, Bart or Lisa Simpson in an attempt to save Maggie. I always enjoyed playing as Bart because you traveled around on your skateboard and used it as a weapon, which I thought was the coolest ever when I was a kid.
If you decide to get your computer, you should know that it is actually included two game: Simpsons and a bonus game that will be announced when pre-orders start July 15th.
Arcade1Up has not announced prices for the cabinet, but the company’s four-player NBA Jam the machine costs $ 499.99 from GameStop, so that’s possible Simpsons can be for the same price. While it may seem expensive, vintage arcade cabinets can cost thousands of dollars, so Arcade1Up’s re-release may be an affordable way to get Simpsons machine for yourself.
