The game features 16 levels, each one based on a classic episode of the TV show. It's a separate entity from the upcoming Simpsons Movie and won't debut alongside it, the game has its own unique script with around an hour of cinematics voiced by the Simpsons cast.
You take control of two family members in each level and use their skills to work towards the goal. Each character has special abilities, for example Bart can turn into Bartman and fly. Homer is able to morph into the Homerball, which is a large bloated (even more so) ball-shaped version of himself. You'll also have the option of collecting things on the way, such as Duff Caps and Krusty Koupons.
The graphics are cel-shaded, making the game look very similar to the show. It's due for release in Spring this year. Previous Simpsons titles have been largely hit and miss (or hit & run!), hopefully with EA at the helm the franchise is in for better things.
