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.

  1. Holy crap they are bringing back earthworm jim? thats insane! It was a pretty good game back in the day and I was surprised sequels didn’t come out then.. I will be interested to see how this all looks in the pre-release or beta game play videos.

  2. I loved this game, it was as hard as Hell but it was fun as Hell. I never did manage to get that extra life at the bottom of the second level though. That’s pretty cruel isn’t it? A host of pitfalls and you need crazy whip skills to reach a single life, and you’ll lose 3 on the way in and 2 on the way out!

  3. I loved this game as a kid, this, X-men 2, Sonic, Toe jam and Earl, man I miss my Genesis.

    Bringing back older generation games like this seems kinda pointless, if you really wanted to play it there’s always emulations.

    @hahaha yeah, that’s how they made em back them. Their way of making games strategic I guess.
