Heading to mobile, WiiWare, PSN and Xbox LIVE Arcade.
Gameloft has announced a multi-year licensing agreement with Interplay to develop, distribute and publish Earthworm Jim, a run and gun platform video game featuring an earthworm who dresses up in a Super Suit to fight evil.
The game will be released on mobile devices, WiiWare, PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade - Microsoft's console will have a one month exclusive on the game.
"We are delighted to partner with Interplay to bring Earthworm Jim to multiple downloadable platforms," said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice president, Gameloft. "The game, with its humorous and edgy style, is a great fit for today's gamer who craves a fully immersive experience that is fun and easily accessible. We look forward to delivering a fantastic game."
Earthworm Jim centres around an ordinary earthworm who engages in normal worm activities, such as eating dirt, crawling and fleeing from hungry birds - that is until he comes across a high tech indestructible space suit. The suit's powerful atomic particles cause him to grow and obtain newfound powers.
The game will be available in the last quarter of 2009.
