ToeJam & Earl Games Heading to XBLA, PSN in November
SEGA is continuing the love for their back catalog titles, as both SEGA Genesis titles ToeJam & Earl and ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron will be receiving digital releases on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this November. The titles will be available individually for PSN users on November 6 for $4.99 each, with the two titles being bundled together for XBLA users as the SEGA Vintage Collection: ToeJam & Earl on November 7 for 800 Microsoft Points.
In the original ToeJam & Earl, players have to help the alien duo explore the craziest planet they’ve ever visited: Earth! After a rough crash landing, pieces of their spaceship have been scattered across a giant, constantly-changing landscape. Help them avoid hazards and collect all the pieces so they can get home to planet Funkotron.
Genesis sequel ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron, meanwhile, has our alien heroes return safely to their home planet only to discover that their ship had stowaways! Funkotron is now infested with wild Earthlings who need to be put into jars and shipped back home.
Aside from being faithful recreations of the original Genesis ports, the titles will include full online co-op support (a definite plus!), as well as achievement and trophy implementation. Time to get funky!
