The Simpsons arcade game, a classic four-player brawler that I personally spent countless quarters growing up, gets a re-release to celebrate 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 battle with waves of oncoming villains like Homer, Marge, Bart or Lisa Simpson in an attempt to save Maggie. I always liked playing as Bart because you traveled around on your skateboard and used it as a weapon that I thought was the coolest thing ever when I was a kid.
If you decide to get the machine, know that it is actually included thaw game: The Simpsons and a bonus game that will be announced when pre-orders start on July 15th.
Arcade1Up has not announced prices for the cabinet, but the company’s four-player NBA Jam machine costs $ 499.99 from GameStop, so that’s possible The Simpsons could be similarly priced. While it may seem expensive, vintage arcade cabinets can cost thousands of dollars, so releasing Arcade1Up can be a comparable affordable way to get The Simpsons machine for yourself.
