Sega Vintage Collection: ToeJam & Earl
ToeJam & Earl Funking Their Way to XBLA
Written By
View author's profile

Right, you probably already know this but ToeJam & Earl is definitely coming out on XBLA.

The classic co-op Rogue-like follows the eponymous aliens after they crash land on a bizarre world of phantom ice-cream trucks and police chickens. It's your job to guide them around the world, collecting the pieces of their spaceship before zipping off back home. Originally released for Megadrive/Genesis in 1991, ToeJam & Earl was a bit weird and a lot wonderful.

And now it will be again! There’s no official announcement as yet, but you can have a look at the achievements for the game here. We’ll bring a release date as soon as we can.

Oh and in case you never played it, here's a random YouTube vid. Best soundtrack ever?

This game had some of the best music of that era of gaming and I think it still holds up well today. I'm totally looking forward to hearing that funk sound again.

holy cow this was one of those games my dad and i used to play hardcore amounts of. If it wasn't Streets of Rage 2 or Madden '95 (i think) then it was this game. Very excited this is coming back.

I am so excited, I have been waiting for this since the first classic sega game came out on 360.

I was looking at the achievements though.. a lot of them are not in
the original game. There was never coins in T&G1, there was never presents in trees.. warp zones.. what is this?

Is this also including Toejam & Earl 2?

If they have online co-op for this I think I might have a heart attack.

I doubt they will though, sadly. :'(
