The Simpsons: Hit & Run Producer Would Like To Make A Remake of the Game
While there are several games that are disastrous, there are also others that have become true classics. Such is the case of The Simpsons: Hit & Run, a game for the sixth generation of consoles that entertained many by having the charisma of the characters created by Matt Groening and being something like a GTA for the whole family. In case you remember it with love, you’ll be glad to know that one of its producers would like to work in a remaster.
In an interview with LADBible, Vlad Ceraldi, producer of The Simpsons: Hit & Run commented that a remake of this game does not seem like a crazy idea. The only problem is that, to make it happen, it would first be necessary for everyone involved with the license to be willing to do so. That is, they would need the authorization of Disney, the current owner of the franchise and possibly that of Vivendi Entertainment, distributor of the original release.
“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 said.
Later, Ceraldi acknowledged that there have been talks about a possible remake of The Simpsons: Hit & Run, but all have been informal: “It’s come up before in discussions but not seriously, usually at the pub, just talking about the idea of some of the magic that was captured and the potential ability to recapture it in a new way with a different audience, with a different generation of devices.”
“There’s masters out there like Nintendo and other companies who have nailed it time and time again, so it would be wonderful to reinvest in how you can control the characters, how you can control the world, how much of the world you can explore in detail,” he continued.
Finally, the creative made it clear that a remake of The Simpsons: Hit & Run would be an ideal opportunity to modernize it and thus be accessible to new generations. They also believe that they could take advantage of current technology to implement several things that were impossible at the beginning of the millennium.
“There’s a lot more fidelity you can go for as far as content exploration than we were able to do in that particular era. There were a lot of references put into the game but we didn’t get everything. There’s a lot more things that could be done and that would be fascinating for sure,” he concluded.
