Today, Konami announced that The Simpsons Arcade Game is officially coming to Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. Coming soon, that is. In fact, it’s launching this very week for Xbox users. The game hits the Xbox Marketplace on Friday, February 3rd for 800 Microsoft points. Sony players will have to wait until next Tuesday, February 7th to buy it for $9.99 from PSN.
Of course, Sony people aren’t exactly being left out in the cold. According to the official Playstation Blog, Playstation Plus members can download The Simpsons Arcade for free in February, along with Final Fantasy V and Far Cry 2.
The Simpsons Arcade Game will feature all the classic four-player beat-em-up action of the original, with the signature team-up combos and that fantastic Simpsons art style. There are also new modes and a never-before-seen Japanese alternate version of the game.
Assuming Konami doesn’t mess this up, everybody say it with me: “We’re finally getting a legal home version of Simpsons Arcade.”
