ToeJam & Earl first came to the Genesis in 1991. A sequel, Toejam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron, hit a few years later in 1993, then even a much later version on Xbox. Unfortunately there has been little news about the games since then. If you miss the old ToeJam & Earl then maybe Sega's recent announcement will please you. Both original Genesis games are being brought to PSN and XBLA as part of the Sega Vintage Collection series.
Both games will be sold for $5/800 Points and come out a day apart depending on the system you use. PSN users will gain access to the games on November 6th, while XBLA will share the games on November 7th. As is expected, the games will both have Trophy and Achievement support. The biggest reason to pick them up though is because both titles now feature online co-op.
However, the games will not be updated visually. As such, both ToeJam & Earl and Panic on Funkotron will be presented in 4:3 perspective, meaning widescreen TVs will have bars to the left and right of game screen. Still, considering that online co-op was added when it didn't have to be, both games are still set to excite fans.
