TOEJAM AND EARL TO BE RELEASED ON PSN AND XBOX LIVE ARCADE

TOEJAM AND EARL TO BE RELEASED ON PSN AND XBOX LIVE ARCADE  

Toejam and Earl will be released on PSN and XBLA on November 6th, 2012.  The sequel to Toejam and Earl, Panic in Funkotron, will also be released.  On PSN, the titles can be purchased separately for $4.99 each, while on XBLA the games will be bundled together for 800 MS points.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Toejam and Earl is a classic title for the Sega Genesis.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t included in Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection, much to the dismay of fans of Sega and Toejam and Earl.  In the game, players take the role of Toejam and Earl, wayward space aliens who have crash landed on earth and must search for pieces to their broken spaceship.  Along the way they come across interesting enemies like the bogey-man, chickens with tomato cannons, and the infamous “nerd herd.”  Presents are scattered throughout the various levels, with items like food to restore health, icarus wings to fly across the level, and tomatoes used to “pop,” enemies.

For a full walkthrough of the game, including strategies, secret locations, and more, come back to flydrs.com when the game releases in November.

    • I totally agree. It’s an amazing game. I’m glad to see it being released on PSN and XBLA. It’s a game that has easily withstood the test of time, and is just as fun as it was 20 years ago.
