There hadn't been any news on The Simpsons video game front for over a year. Back in November 2005, EA announced that they had signed a deal to develop multiple games based on the series, and then never mentioned it again. Until yesterday, that is, when they announced that they would be releasing a game based on the Simpsons Movie. Woo-hoo!
Another company, the Canadian-based Solutions 2 GO, Inc., will be releasing a line of Simpsons video game accessories, including "gaming controllers, carrying cases, accessory bundles and much more, covering all the major consoles, including next generation and hand-held gaming systems." The company is set to show off the new accessory line at next week's American International Toy Fair in New York (Feb. 11-14), so hopefully we'll have some pictures soon. (Even sooner than I thought: Here's the UPDATE).
