Gameloft to dig up Earthworm Jim

Gameloft to dig up Earthworm Jim

Fancy catapulting a cow into the stratosphere using a refrigerator?  Well it seems you’ll soon have the chance.

Interplay and Gameloft are bringing the Shiny Entertainment classic Earthworm Jim to Wiiware, XBox Live Arcade and the Playstation network later this year.

Originally released for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and later the SNES, Game Boy, Game Gear and Master System way back in 1994/1995.  It was renowned for its humour and art style whilst managing to maintain great run and gun gameplay.

The Genesis original is already available for the Wii Virtual Console so we suspect that this maybe something a little different to a straght port, perhaps a HD remake with shiny new visuals (similar to Bionic Commando: Rearmed).

Little is known at the moment but we’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
