The Simpsons: Hit & Run producer thinks it could be remade

The Simpsons: Hit & Run is widely regarded as one of gaming’s finest achievements and arguably the best video game to emerge from the classic pop culture franchise.

While the TV show has long stood out as a contemporary work of art, its adaptations into other mediums has often lacked a certain charm.

One reworking has always shone brightly and remains in countless players’ hearts with its lingering nostalgia and outlandish shenanigans.

Taking inspiration from the action-adventure series Grand Theft Auto, The Simpsons: Hit & Run allowed the player to drive a plethora of vehicles around Springfield wreaking havoc and mayhem wherever possible.

Initially released back in 2003 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Microsoft Windows and Gamecube, fans have been longing for a remake for more than 15 years.

However, what was once a pipe dream could soon become a reality.

Vlad Ceraldi, producer on the classic title, recently spoke with LADBible and revealed he could it see 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,” he continues.

“But absolutely, it would be to fun to explore those characters and that universe again.”

While Ceraldi believes a remake or remaster could still well be on the cards, he also revealed that discussions have never really made it past the pub.

“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,” he says.
