The Simpsons: Hit and Run is one of those classic games that seem to have managed to cross the transformation gap a fantastic television Show in a fantastic game.
And now, the original producer, Vlad Ceraldi, stated that he believed that the cult classic, which was now almost 16 years old, could be due to a remake or a remake full.
Addressing exclusively to LADbible Ceraldi stated:
“I could see it on different types of platforms as a remake or remaster. should take the parties that are in charge of the property to want that to happen and that someone decides to go out and do it.But absolutely, it would be fun to explore these characters and this universe again , which work again. ”
Ceraldi, who is now working as development director at Hothead Games, also admitted that he could force the game to become a huge success when it will be released there. over 16 years old.
“As for why he stood the test of time, I think it’s a game that kids could play with, that adults could play, and all fans of the series could try to laugh and have fun with it. ”
“When you do something, sometimes you know you did something special, it was one of those we knew we had achieved, we did not know it was going to to sell as well as she did – we had high hopes, but it certainly met her expectations. ”
Ironically, to prove his point of view, Ceraldi had noticed the impact of the game on the interview of a candidate for a post a few years ago.
“I remember interviewing someone for one of our games, they did not know I was working on The Simpsons: Hit & Run. One of their favorite games of all time and ended up saying in the end that it was The Simpsons: Hit & Run.
“What a joy they had when they opened it on Christmas morning, put it on and had it play all Christmas. They tell this story and say that they are six years old.
“It feels old, but it was also interesting to see this young new employee of our company, he began his career.”
Ceraldi also took the time to discuss the possibility of remastering the game, which is supposed to have been the subject of a long discussion … in the pub.
“This has already been addressed in the discussions, but not seriously, usually at the pub, but just about the idea of some of the captured magic and the potential ability of retrieve it in a new way with a different audience, with a different generation of peripherals.
“There was joy in doing this as obviously the fans who play it – that’s it Does not always happen, but it happened with this game. We had doubts that it would work as we had hoped, but of course that was the case. ”
” There are masters like Nintendo and other companies that have managed to do everything, so it would be great to reinvest in the way you can control the characters, how you can control the world , the amount of world you can explore in detail.
“So you can search for a lot more content exploration resources than we could at that time.” Many references were incorporated into the game, but we did not not all inclusive, there are many more things that could be done that would be fascinating for sure. ”
Unfortunately, those who hope to see the game launch on the PS4, the Xbox or even future consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Scarlett may want to temper their enthusiasm for the moment.
According to Ceraldi, any decision on a remaster or remake will be the direct responsibility of the gaming rights holders.
“Owners of property should need this to happen and someone decides to do it, “said Ceraldi,” but absolutely, it would be fun to explore again these characters and this universe, which work again. ”
