The Simpsons Arcade likely coming to consoles

The Simpsons arcade game is considered by many to be a true beat 'em up classic, and while most of that is due to blind nostalgia, it's still a neat little button masher. Sadly, it's never come to consoles, but the Australian Classification Board has let slip a rating that heavily points toward a release.

It lacks system or release information, but the sudden appearance of the rating, as well as the named developer, is solid evidence. 

Backbone Entertainment -- known mostly for its digital SEGA ports -- is handling development while Konami will publish. Presumably it will be for both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, but Konami is remaining tight lipped. 

Pretty cool news for brawler fans. I'll be glad to give it another go, even if it is a little crusty these days.

Rumor: The Simpsons Arcade might be coming to XBLA [XBLA Fans]
