Here are some new details for the Simpsons Game:

  • Storyline will center around getting sucked into a video game

  • One extra mini game was confirmed for the Wii version. You’ll be playing as Homer who will be in an eating contest. You’ll use the Wiimote as if it were a spoon
  • The level shown off was round the World in 80 Bites. Homer eats a ton of food and becomes a giant ball to roll around
  • There will be 16 “episodes” in the game
