Simpson’s Arcade Game Might Finally Come To Consoles

Konami’s Simpson’s Arcade game from the early ‘90s is widely considered one of the finest beat ‘em ups of it’s era, and yet we still haven’t seen the game ported to modern consoles as a digital download. Is that about to change?

The Australian Classification Board recently rated The Simpson’s Arcade Game as PG, meaning it contains mild violence. Previously, I had always heard that the Simpson’s game hadn’t been ported to modern consoles, because the voice actor royalties had been restructure since the game’s original release so that re-releasing the game now would cost more in royalty payments than it was worth. Maybe Konami has finally found a work around for this problem, or maybe this is just an evil dirty trick by the Australian government.
