EA's Simpsons game pays homage to Wolfenstein; includes original game textures

One of the most funny and promising titles at E3 this year was a (gasp) licensed IP game: The Simpsons. The game's faithful reproduction of the sitcom's art style and co-op play really impressed me; I haven't had that much fun with this franchise since the old Konami 4-player quarter sucker.

While I personally spent most of my time with the game slaying an endless barrage of hypontized dolphins (sorry Chad) I was treated to a little spoiler by an EA rep: there was a hidden Wolfenstein level in the game. He also confirmed that the textures and proportions of the level were sourced from the original game. The ceiling seemed a bit high but there was no denying the likeness.  So how do you get there?  Spoiler after the jump.

 

In the Medal of Homer stage, Bart and Homie are hired to steal white flags from a town trying to surrender so that they can get firebombed (as nature intended). However, if you put your chores aside and transform into Bartman and fly across the channel you can snake around an abandoned warehouse and find the hidden area.  Smash a few boxes out of your way and you'll find a door to Duffenstein, a replica of the great old-school FPS Castle Wolfenstein. Awesome.

Unfortunately the bonus area didn't feature any gunplay or keg-standing nazis to sling shot, but an easter egg like just made me appreciate the game that much more.
