It seems that everyone’s favorite funky alien duo, ToeJam & Earl, are coming back in the form of ports to Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network.
Genesis classics ToeJam & Earl, along with sequel ToeJam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron will be available on November 7 in the UK. The games are priced at £3.69 GBP ($5.90) on PlayStation Network or 800 Microsoft Points as a combo pack on Xbox Live Arcade.
So far there’s no word on the release date or prices for North America but we’ve been in touch with Sega and will report back as soon as we know.
For the uninitiated, Toejam & Earl are a brightly colored couple of aliens from planet Funkytron. The story has it that the duo crash-landed on Earth and were forced to seek out the pieces of their ship in order to get back home. The first title was released on the Sega Genesis in 1991 and features THE BEST BASSLINES YOU WILL EVER HEAR IN A GAME (possibly the best basslines ever).
Sega has released a few screenshots of the port, which you’ll find below. I’ve also included a little footage from the original so you can experience the incredible funk.
