The Simpsons: Hit & Run is a classic game that sees you explore several open parts of the show with members of the cast, driving around and completing missions, and with some fans wanting a remaster, re-release, or remake of the game, producer Vlad Ceraldi talked about the potential with Lad Bible.
"I could see it on multiple different types of platforms as a remake or remaster," he said. "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. But absolutely, it would be fun to explore those characters and that universe again, that work again."
Ceraldi now works at Hothead Games, and says that Hit & Run "was one of the ones that we knew we hit the mark. We didn't know it was going to sell as well as it did - we had high hopes, but it definitely hit its expectations."
Remaking the game doesn't seem like it's on the cards though, despite the desire from some fans to see it return:
"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."
"There was joy in the making of it as well as obviously the fans playing it - that doesn't always happen but it certainly happened with that game. We had our doubts that it would work out the way we hoped but obviously it did."
"There's masters out there like Nintendo and other companies who have nailed it time and time again, so it would be wonderful to reinvest in how you can control the characters, how you can control the world, how much of the world you can explore in detail."
"So there's a lot more fidelity you can go for as far as content exploration than we were able to do in that particular era. There were a lot of references put into the game but we didn't get everything. There's a lot more things that could be done and that would be fascinating for sure."
