The E3 2019 not only serves to announce new video games, but also to remember those that never had the honor of being presented to the public. This is the case of a Mario Party-type video game that EA studied about The Simpsons.
Matt Selman and J. Stewart Burns, producers of the successful Fox series now owned by Disney, have shared this information during a talk at the E3 Coliseum that takes place these days in the framework of the angelina fair. According to his statements, the project did not end up coming to fruition due to the ambitiousness of its objectives, although it did not stop being the favorite video game for Selman.
” At that time there was a kind Fashion for Mario Party, lots of mini-games … we briefly studied how to get in the car ” said Selman in words collected by GameSpot. I have added that the idea was to offer 20 family experiences, but because it was estimated that they would be spending a year on each of them, it ended up being discarded to the relief of the producer of the most well-known television family. ” It was our fault, not EA ” concluded.
And from there to The Simpsons: Tapped Out, a title for mobile devices that according to Burns was born because of the production team of the series They felt that they owed it to EA. Now, remember in GameSpot, this title is a success of income.
