A New EARTHWORM JIM Game Is in Development with the Original Creative Team and Some Designs Have Been Teased
I have some fond memories of playing Earthworm Jim with my brothers on the Sega Genesis back in the 90s. That game was a blast! If you were also a fan of the game, you’ll be happy to learn that there’s a new game currently in development that is being created by the original team of the original game!
The game will be released exclusively for Intellivision’s new gaming console that is called the Intellivision Amico. This new console is scheduled to launch on October 10th, 2020. The announcement comes as Earthworm Jim celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Intellivision Entertainment’s CEO and president Tommy Tallarico who was the composer for the original 2 Earthworm Jim games, revealed the first details on the new game telling Variety:
“We have been talking about this moment for many years, it’s a dream come true to finally get the entire team back together. We’re looking forward to sharing a small part of our reunion and initial design meeting with fans from around the world. Intellivision Amico is designed to bring friends and families together and we are excited for fans and those just being introduced to the series to get a first look as we kick-off the design of the game.”
While it’s pretty cool that a new game is being developed, I wish is was being developed for a major console because I’m not going to go out and buy this Intellivision Amico thing. I included a video for the console that gives you all the details on it.
I also shared some art below for you to check out. it comes from Doug TenNapel, the original creator of Earthworm Jim, and they tease some possible new designs for the character.
Are you excited to hear that Earthworm Jim is getting a new game!?
