Earthworm Jim HD Dated For PS3

Cows and crows beware, the worm is back.

Though we knew Earthworm Jim was due to make a triumphant return to this generation, we now know exactly when the irreverent fridge-launcher wil appear on the PS3. Having enjoyed six weeks of exclusivity on XBLA, the PSN version will hit on July 28th costing a mere €9.99/£7.99.

Don’t forget, Earthworm Jim HD is a spruced up version of the 16-bit classic with added multiplayer for good measure. Here’s a brief reminder of what is coming your way this week.

    The ‘Groovy’ at the end sounds like they’ve changed the voice actor which would suck.
    Otherwise, looking forward to playing this again. I love EWJ, and Pete

      The video won’t work for me so I can’t hear it right now (lousy PS3 browser) but EWJ was originally voiced by Dan Castellaneta of Homer Simpson fame so it would suck if they got rid of him.

        Ignore my previous comment. I was thinking of the EWJ cartoon, not the game. It was some dude with the unfortunate name of Douglas TenNapel who voiced Jim in the game and to be honest now that I’ve had a chance to watch the video I couldn’t tell you if it was the original voice or not because all I can hear in my head is Dan Castellaneta.

    Must have.

    A lot cheaper than the SNES £55 price tag.
