Vote for the next SEGA Genesis game to be ported to XBLA
*EDIT* OMG, EARTHWORM JIM REMAKE COMING TO XBLA!!!
" Isn't someone making a 3D remake of Earthworm Jim for XBLA? Heard about it on Joystiq a few times very recently. Wish Sega would port Daytona USA or Super GT, or Daytona USA 2... "
I remember this from a while back:
" Sega recently announced that due to a licensing issue with Interplay (a result of the newly announced Gameloft/Interplay Earthworm Jim game), Earthworm Jim would no longer be an option for a new Genesis XBLA game. The company then removed what was at that point the clear winner from its XBLA poll.
Why would a new Earthworm Jim prevent the release of an old one? Because the new one, G4TV's The Feed reports, is a remake and not an original game. That means it isn't the Earthworm Jim 4 announced last year, and that the same game will be available on both Virtual Console (the Genesis version was released on VC in October) and WiiWare. "
Actually answers all our questions. edit - Looks like a 1 month XBLA exclusive. Really really hope it gets the Prince of Persia Classic treatment, that was a really nice remake.
" Just letting folks know that ToeJam & Earl is gonna be the next Sega Genesis game for Xbox Live Arcade. Personally, I'm shocked, given how Earthworm Jim at a point received almost half of the votes that were put in. "@jakob187 said:
" ToeJam and Earl is still an excellent game and all...but...well...it's Earthworm Jim, man!!! Why can't we get some more of our favorite worm?! "@Diamond said:

"The poll was restarted due to a liscencing error and they had to pull Earthworm Jim, I believe the reason behind it was due to the fact that they are already porting or making an all new Earthworm Jim for XBLA. I don't know anything about ToeJam & Earl though... so I'll give the demo a shot.
