Coming Tuesday to PSN: Earthworm Jim HD for PS3

Jen Kye's Avatar Posted by Social Media Editor, Gameloft

Remember playing Earthworm Jim during the glorious 16-bit era? How about battling Major Mucus and Evil the Cat? Or saving Princess What’s-Her-Name?

PlayStation Network: Earthworm Jim HD

If you don’t recall ever playing Earthworm Jim, I can only shake my head with utter sorrow. Who else but an ordinary earthworm can transcend fleeing from crows and eating dirt to become a mutated superhero?

Cue the dramatic music.

Get your Plasma Baster ready for some trigger happy times in the sweet world of high definition graphics — thanks to the amazing team at Gameloft, they’ve given all the original levels in the single-player campaign a healthy HD face-lift. As an added bonus, you’ll discover three exclusive levels which you can now venture through in a never-before-seen setting.

Not one for solo adventures? Gameloft has you covered. Earthworm Jim HD offers local and online 2-4 player co-op gameplay in 15 multiplayer levels! You can also team up with your buddies to (you know) launch cows or madly whip space ships.

Did I mention, launching cows?

Simply strap into the Ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit™ (Super Suit for short) and be prepared to take down Psy-Crow!

Earthworm Jim HD will be hitting the PlayStation Network on August 3rd at an awesome price of $9.99!

Can you fix the 3.41 problem that keeps us from upgrading our HDDs and buying more games? :D

DNAgent said:

I’m not going to buy this for full price considering they made a stupid decision to have this game be a timed exclusive for a last gen console. I’ll probably play it when it gets discounted and that’s only if I have nothing else to play (literally). Otherwise, I will just wait for PS+ to offer it for free.

OMFG! Hell yeah! After weeks of not-so-very-good updates! Come this jewel of a game!!! So excited!!! Thanks!

This brings back great memories. I used to play Earthworm Jim with no pants on because the game got me so hot. It was so difficult I got heated up in my small room, if those pants didn’t come off i might suffocate. I will play this with no pants just for Nostalgia.

Gorvi said:

What took so long?

Syndicate3 said:

July 29th, 9:15 am

Any reasons why this took more than a month to finally come out on the PS3 after the 360 version

Yayanator117 said:

Awesome – looking forward to it.
PS+ discount, though, please!

BlooodyCow said:

July 29th, 9:19 am

Why over a month delay for the PS3 version when the other console had it for over a month now? And please, no BS answer

THitter said:

July 29th, 9:19 am

I’ll bet PSN+ subs won’t get this for free.

I am glad that this is coming out. First day buy.

July 29th, 9:25 am

I’ll be buying this next week. Well, that’s if Sony fixes the 3.41 update so I can install my new hard drive.

@18 Gameloft has money priorities:

First iPhone, then Xbox, then PSN.

(Reminds me of that Futurama episode: “first Bender, then Flexo, then Fry.)

sam_i_jam said:

July 29th, 9:29 am

I grew up to titles like this. I will be giving in and getting this, along with Scott Pilgrim and Castle Crashers (whenever it decides to come out).

SkyNet003 said:

July 29th, 9:33 am

Too bad it’s possibly the only interesting thing we’ll see in the next updat, as always. And I’m not even interested in this, anyway :(

xxnike629xx said:

I thought this was an XBLA exclusive and yet again, PS3 gets something that was once “exclusive” with more stuff.

=D

I remember playing the original at a friend’s house every so often and I sucked at the game but it was pretty fun.

I wonder if they’re gonna do an HD version of the second one.

This makes me happy, good old days when men where men and games where games!
Totally going to have it!

FenRir_D said:

July 29th, 9:33 am

Dont forget to fix 3.41 for HDD upgrade :)

mywhitenoise said:

July 29th, 9:34 am

If this has a discount on PS+ I MIGHT consider getting a membership.

I saw one of my friends had a + sign next to his name, though…I don’t want people knowing im a PS+ member if I sign up.

Will there be trophies??

phinnv8 said:

Keyboard cat.

WakizashiM said:

July 29th, 9:46 am

I see it didn’t remain exclusive very long. :)

yungkilla01 said:

July 29th, 9:46 am

i just tried to get on my PS3 and it froze? before i even clicked on anything, then i restarted it and again, and that time before it said “PS3”, im wondering if its the 3.41 update?

BlooodyCow said:

July 29th, 9:48 am

@27 FenRir_D
update 3.41 is affect PS3 HDD upgrades? Are you using the right type of HDD and the right format?

Berae said:

July 29th, 9:48 am

@19 Thitter

shut up dude

DZORMAGEN said:

July 29th, 9:50 am

Ok I think I got this right! I found out the pattern for PS+. Since this game will release on Aug. 3 2010, PS+ memebers will expect to see this for FREE in about 2012-2013! Perfect! YES… I got the pattern for the PS+! You get “FREE” games once no one give a _______ about them!!

FenRir_D said:

July 29th, 9:55 am

@33 BloodyCow
Oh yeah, Im using a 2.5″ SATA 5400 RPM, there is a lot of people with the same problem on a topic on the forums. The update file from the website (the systems asks for it when you turn the system on) doesn’t copy completely onto the HDD regardless of the storage media containing the 3.41 file (USB pendrives, external HDDs, CDs)and asks for the file again. So if anyone is thinking of upgrading their HDDs, be aware of this.

July 29th, 9:57 am

Not bad will see if i get it or not

risenfromnothin said:

July 29th, 9:58 am

As somebody else already said YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved that game and have been wanting it to come to PSN for years now!

Moonglare said:

What wonderful news!!

DA_SHREDDER said:

I really would have preferred Toe Jam and Earl, but this will do until then.

UrRomeo310 said:

July 29th, 10:12 am

I Remember this on my Sega Gennesis i HAVE TO GET THIS GAME hahaha yayuhhhh!!!!

PushinNshovinMe said:

July 29th, 10:15 am

also played it on my Genesis, looks great.

EXCEPT for the voice acting, very disappointing because the game was supposed to have humor but it just sounds like some programmer recorded his voice.

xeno3d said:

Awesome!

airtoast said:

July 29th, 10:32 am

I know I am late with this, but could someone please explain in great detail why we are not able to alphabetize or sort demos and purchased PSN games? Finding the game I want to play in my long list (500GB HDD) is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

I haven’t bought a PSN game in about 6 months, and I will not buy any more until this tiny feature is added! It just makes no sense why it is not in there! Do Eric Lempel and his team honestly not think of this kind of stuff? You would think that something this simple, necessary, and painfully obvious would have been implemented in one of the first updates in 2006!

nokedimyo said:

July 29th, 10:43 am

Does this version of the game include Big Bruty? I used to play this game on Sega CD all the time, but would need a demo to convince me to buy it since my Sega CD still works :-P

BlackIceJoe said:

July 29th, 10:45 am

Is there any hope for a PSP version of Earthworm Jim? It does not have to be the same. I would even be all for the originals as downloads so I could play them on the PSP. So please think about bringing Earthworm Jim to the PSP too.

nfalk said:

July 29th, 10:49 am

It’s good to see companies recognize that their old games can be a relatively inexpensive source of cash. In no ways is this a bad thing for consumers and publishers. I hope the trend contunues. Toejam and Earl HD anyone?

thank god. hopefully the whining will stop……for now…
