The Simpsons Arcade Game Hits PSN Next Week

It's no secret that many of us here at 1UP reserve a special place in our hearts for The Simpsons. As various degrees of kids throughout the 80s and 90s, the show appealed to us as the very definition of smart, edgy, and refreshingly honest satire on all things Americana.

A few years back, Features Admiral Bob Mackey wrote a plethora of blog entries on the series' sordid history in video games. Alongside that, Retronauts recently devoted an entire episode chronicling the highs (there were a few) and lows (there were many) of the video game adaptations. And from that discussion stemmed two truths about The Simpsons that were widely accepted amongst the group.

1) The show has been on a steady downward spiral for the past 15 years.

2) The Simpsons Arcade Game is pretty much the greatest thing ever.

The 4-player beat 'em up was jammed pack with cooperative goodness and more references to the show that you could shake a monkey's paw at. Outside of a horrid iOS port, The Simpsons Arcade Game has been pretty much absent from the modern gaming space. Unless you could track down an opium den containing an arcade cabinet, you're left to just imagine how awesome the game was.

That's why the news that Sony is releasing the game on PSN next month is so many different kinds of amazing. What's even better is that as of February 7th, the game is going to be FREE to PlayStation Plus Members. Here's to hoping that is also comes with free frogurt...just so long as the frogurt isn't cursed...
