Default New Earthworm Jim coming to Wiiware/PSN/Live Arcade!

NEW YORK, August 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gameloft, a leading developer and publisher of downloadable video games, today announced a multi-year licensing agreement with Interplay to develop, distribute and publish Earthworm Jim, a popular run and gun platform video game featuring an earthworm who dresses up in a Super Suit to fight evil. The game will make its way to mobile, WiiWare(TM), PlayStation Network, with an exclusive one month run on Xbox Live(R) Arcade.

"We are delighted to partner with Interplay to bring Earthworm Jim to multiple downloadable platforms," said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice president, Gameloft. "The game, with its humorous and edgy style, is a great fit for today's gamer who craves a fully immersive experience that is fun and easily accessible. We look forward to delivering a fantastic game."

"Earthworm Jim resonates with millions of people worldwide and we are excited to have one of the best developers in the industry create this game for a new audience," said Herve Caen, CEO, Interplay. "Gameloft's creativity coupled with its innate knack for innovative games, makes us 100% confident that the result will be nothing short of stellar."

Initially released in 1994, Earthworm Jim's games garnered such a cult following that the character's popularity took him far beyond video games into an animated TV series, Toys and Comic books. Earthworm Jim centers around an ordinary earthworm who engages in normal worm activities- eating dirt, crawling and fleeing from hungry birds- that is until he comes across a high tech indestructible space suit. Jim takes refuge in the space suit while fleeing from hungry birds. The suit's powerful atomic particles cause him to grow and obtain newfound powers.

The game will be available in the last quarter of 2009. For the latest information on the game, follow Gameloft on our Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/Gameloft

Wether this will be 3D or 2D is unknown at the moment.
Also, Isn't Gameloft the Company that made That Mobile Phone port of Sonic Unleashed?

Yes it was! Also hearing that this game will be made by Gameloft is having a slight possibility, that the game might be bad!

Gameloft did also make that assassin's creed on the DS so. Anyway, seeing as how EWJ has a new game is pretty cool.

They did Unleashed on the phone. Which was terrible.

Lets hope they don't ruin EWJ.

I notice a severe lack of Doug TenNapel.

"Cautious Optimism" isn't the right phrase, but it's the first one that comes to mind.

Please, for the love of God, don't let this suck. I don't think my heart could take the thought of Earthworm Jim getting another crappy and/or cancelled game. ;;

Actually, don't listen to the first two posts on this thread. They confused me. On the Sega forums, they told me Gameloft is only PUBLISHING it. -_-I should of read the article instead of reading comments. -_-

Wow, it still looks like the same game! That's a feat considering how washed out and worse remakes tend to be.

Unless they're going to pull a Eurocom with the physics and controls. David Perry needs to be on board as a technical director for EWJ to be done right.

Shoot! Those screens look magnificient! Looks like they did some major touching up on the graphics to make it look a lot less pixelly.

Groovy!

Awesome. Talk about 2D games in HD. This looks sweet. I never imagined that Earthworm Jim would join in the fray. The more the merrier!
