Xbox 360 Arcade games often have their release dates announced mere weeks or even days before their actual release, but Konami’s announcement that the Simpsons Arcade Game would be releasing on Xbox Live Arcade this Friday, February 3rd, definitely wins the award for being last-minute.
The classic title will come with some pretty major upgrades, including 4-player online co-op, an unlockable Japanese mode, Simpsons character guide and in-game posters and flyers, all for the price of 800MSP. The lucky sods over on Playstation 3 can get the game for free when it releases onto PSN on February 7th, providing that they’re PS Plus members, otherwisee they’ll have to pay for it.
And if this wasn’t enough Simpsons goodness for you, then here’s the Achievement list for ya:
