Electronic Arts announces 'Simpsons' game

The world's largest video game publisher announces it will soon release a game based on The Simpsons.

Electronic Arts on Wednesday announced that it will release this fall a new Simpsons video game.

The announcement, by the world's-largest video game publisher, came just minutes before an invite-only press event in San Francisco where it was expected to make a "special announcement." It's not yet clear if the two announcements are one and the same.

Twentieth Century Fox

The game, which is expected to be released this fall in conjunction with Gracie Films and Twentieth Century Fox, will feature the familiar Simpsons characters, and presumably, the storyline. It will also feature the voice actors from the TV series.

"In The Simpsons Game, Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa use exciting, all-new powers to save the world from rising chaos," EA wrote in a press release about the new game. "To help the Simpsons, gamers at home must journey through all of Springfield (as well as vast worlds beyond), vanquish an amazing array of villains, and fight their way through parodies of multiple popular games."

The game is slated to be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii.
