It comes with tears of joy today that I discover one of my all time favourite gaming memories makes its return to our screens. ToeJam and Earl was one of the hallmark titles of the Sega Megadrive when it was released and one of the first games I ever remember to have split screen co-op play forming action, perfect for a bit of friendly 2 player action.
Sega announced today that ToeJam & Earl and ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotro, are now available on the PlayStation Network in North America, Europe and globally on Xbox LIVE Arcade for retro gaming fans to download.
Players will be able to download these classics separately on PlayStation Network for US $4.99/£3.59/€4.49/AUD $6.25 and bundled together on Xbox LIVE Arcade as Sega Vintage Collection: ToeJam & Earl for just 800 Microsoft Points.
In ToeJam & Earl, players must help the funky alien duo find the missing pieces of their ship after crash landing on the craziest planet in the galaxy: Earth! Explore changing landscapes and collect an assortment of helpful (and harmful!) items while avoiding the planets more unique denizens.
ToeJam & Earl: Panic on Funkotron, finds our heroes back on their home planet with an unexpected cargo of human stowaways! It’s up to you to capture and send these troublemakers back to Earth and restore peace to Funkotron.
