Bart Simpson enters the world of esports in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons . The staff behind The Simpsons even talked to Riot Games to make the episode more authentic.
In the episode titled "E My Sports," Bart becomes addicted to an online game titled " Conflict of Enemies . The fake game seems to be a spoof on popular Esports games such as League of Legends and DOTA 2 . Simpson's Producer Al Jean tweeted a preview of the episode revealing the name of the game and what it's going to look like in the episode.
According to Tweets by Esports consultant Rod Breslau, The Simpsons collaborated with Riot Games to ensure that they presented an "accurate representation of video games in the episode"? I do not know, and I suspect that an accurate representation of video games will most likely mean a few jokes that most people who still watch the show will not get. Be prepared for jokes that Bart is not really Jungling!
In some of the ad art episodes, we see Bart playing games and a mustache on a dirty desk. What I really do not understand Bart should be 10 years old. Do many ten-year-old mustaches grow? This facial hair is not surprising, the show has long treated Bart as a teenager, if need be, even if it does not make much sense. Maybe one day they will let you grow up with beard. Someday.
The episode will air on FOX on Sunday, March 17.
