This is the age of retro sequels. With Sonic 4 on the horizon and Mega Man 9 and 10 nestled snugly on our hard drives, we're beginning to dream of which of our favorite games from the past might see the light of day again after all.
That's why we're hoping that Earthworm Jim 4, recently confirmed to The 34th Dimension at the Calgary Entertainment Expo by series creator Doug TenNapel for release on Wii, will be more like Jim's classic 2D predecessors and not his decent but less fondly remembered Nintendo 64 outing, Earthworm Jim 3D.
As the age of 3D adaptations of classic games has passed, it seems to us that anything but a proper old-style sequel is out of the question. We'll let you know when we hear more. Until then, speculate away!
It better be a proper 2D-style sequel. I wouldn't be up for anthing else!
Nice, looking forward to it.
Whoooooooa, Nelly! xD
Good to hear.
What about blaster master overdrive?
for pete's sake, a new earthworm jim game for me? consider me hyped by the great worm spirit that protects us all
I am so happy that 2D has made a resurgence. I've never really liked 3D platformers much due to fighting the camera not being any fun, and which seems to be the main activity in any 3D platformer, even the best of them.
Alright! Bring it on man, bring it on!
Oh I hope you read this, make is a retail copy and make is one the best looking 2D games, ok me out!
Doubt I'll get this one, but Its good to finally hear some more info on this title.
.... but but I liked EJ 3D
I've never played an EJ game for more than 20 seconds. I'll have to seriously play one sometime.
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaah doggy! I'll be looking forward to this one.
Too early to tell really, but I am a little excited for this announcement.
