Before you get overly excited though, there’s nothing all that new about what the publisher will be bringing to XBLA and the PSN. ToeJam & Earl and its sequel Panic on Funkotron (such a great name) will both post in November- but they’ll more or less be the same games that you remember from the Genesis. Not that that’s a particularly bad thing, but still, those looking for ‘HD-ified’ versions of the classic titles can just keep on waiting.
One thing that the releases might foretell though, and this is pure conjecture, is that maybe (maybe) there’s a possibility of a real sequel on the horizon? Or maybe even just on the drawing board? It does seem unlikely, but the XBLA/PSN releases might just be to test the waters and see if there’s an audience still around for the wacky alien pair.
Yeah, it’s remote- but I can dream can’t I?
Look for ToeJam & Earl and Panic on Funkotron to arrive for download services on November 7th.
