The new trailer for Earthworm Jim HD really makes me wish I still had my old VHS tapes of the Saturday morning cartoon that I recorded from Connecticut’s WB59 every week. It was pretty awesome. So was the game that I had for the Sega Genesis.
Gameloft, wonderfully, seems to have kept that awesomeness in tact in their faithful recreation of the classic game, upgraded for current gen displays.
Including a few new stages and four player co-op, Earthworm Jim HD wants you to work together to save the super-hot Princess What’s-Her-Face? from evil Queen Slug-For-a-Butt! I’m pretty sure I’m picking up the game when it’s released, but let’s hope they’ve made the Peter Puppy stage 1,000x less annoying.
Earthworm Jim HD will be released with limited exclusivity on Xbox Live Arcade on June 9. PlayStation Network and WiiWare flavors will be released one month later.
