The Simpsons Hit And Run developer wants a remake as badly as we do

The Simpsons Hit And Run developer wants a remake as badly as we do

When I think back to the games that I played as a kid, The Simpsons: Hit & Run always, and I mean always, springs to mind.

I’d love to know the hours I sunk into this game on my PlayStation 2. While it only took around 10 hours or so to roll credits in The Simpsons: Hit & Run, I know for a fact that I personally spent hours upon hours just tootling around, treating it as a driving sim. Yes, I was a measly single-digit age so I think that weird behaviour can be excused. That’s not why Hit & Run went on to become a cult-classic though. We all fell in love with its transportation of Grand Theft Auto-style gameplay into the beloved world of The Simpsons.

Speaking of the PlayStation 2, take a look at some of GAMINGbible’s favourite games on the console.

It’s no secret that we’re all desperate for a remake, especially given that the game originally launched almost 21 years ago. Just the other week, I unearthed my copy and my PlayStation 2 console and thought I’d dive into a slice of nostalgia and load the game up. It’s funny how we remember things through rose-tinted lenses. This game felt so fluid during my childhood. Now? Not so much.

Remakes and reboots are very much all the rage at the moment so I’m somewhat surprised that The Simpsons: Hit & Run hasn’t returned to us given the demand for it to do so. As is usually the case with these things, I’m imagining that there are a few licensing hurdles. After all, the game’s creator wants to see it remade just as much as we do.

Lead game designer Joe McGinn spoke to GamesRadar about the game’s longevity, adding that while he had no idea if an official remake was on the cards, he “would love to see it”. Us too, my friend. Hopefully one day, it will happen.
