Earth Worm Jim returns in HD. (XBLA)
Let the memories of how awesome 1994 was flood in as Gameloft finally debuts the Earthworm Jim HD on Xbox Live Arcade.
Brings me back to a time when shows like Freakazoid, Dark Wing Duck, Doug, Beavis and Butt-Head, Ren & Stimpy and The X-Men graced my television. From the look of this trailer Gameloft has done a beautiful job of revamping the Earthworm Jim from it’s original 16-bit predecessor. In addition to the the eye candy single player footage, Gameloft was also kind enough to give gamer a peek at the 4 player co-op mode that will be included.
As with the iPhone version it seems the overuse and strange voice-over of Jim saying, “Grooooovy” will be a bit of an annoyance. But meh, we’ll take what we can get for sweet 90’s nostalgia.
Earthworm Jim HD will be released this month on XBLA, with the PSN version to follow next month.
