Update: It’s a remake!

Thanks to GameLoft and Interplay, Earthworm Jim is heading for PSN, WiiWare and XBLA this holiday 2009.

Will it be the original or will it be a remake like GameLoft’s other notable remake, Prince of Persia Classic? The press release doesn’t say. I was excited about the prospect of a sequel or a remake of the original, but a rerelease is a tougher pill to swallow.

I don’t recall the gameplay of Earthworm Jim being very good. I remember being amused by the goofy animation styling and the soundtrack, but not the gameplay itself. And if the game was sketchy then it must atrocious by today’s standards. Either way, I’m curious to see what will come out of this news!

Earthworm Jim Sequel In The Plans?

I loved Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 and I was looking forward to the remake for the PSP which was put on indefinite hold. InterPlay would do well if they put remakes of both 1 and 2 on XBLA/PSN. C’mon, Capcom is on a remaking spree with Bionic Commando, 1942 and SSF2T:HDR.

Other possible sequels include Descent, MDK and the possibility of an FallOut MMO.
