ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove delayed to early 2019
No longer due out in fall 2018.
HumaNature Studios has delayed ToeJam & Early: Back in the Groove from its previously planned fall 2018 release to early 2019, the studio announced. It will cost $19.99.
The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Limited Run Games-published physical editions are also planned for PlayStation 4 and Switch. PlayStation Store pre-orders will include a ToeJam & Earl PlayStation 4 dynamic theme.
Here is an overview of the game, via director Greg Johnson on the PlayStation Blog:
So waaay back in 1991, we released the original ToeJam & Earl game. It was a “rogue-like,” which wasn’t really even a term yet back then! Like Rogue, ToeJam & Earl had randomly generated levels, unidentified power-ups, hidden corridors, friendlies as well as bad guys… lots of Rogue-ish elements. But ToeJam & Earl also had cooperative multiplayer, dynamic split screen, musical rhythm play with a kickin’ funky soundtrack, and of course, funky aliens!
We made two sequels, Panic on Funkotron and Mission to Earth, but they were very different from that first rogue-like. Same chill vibe but totally different gameplay.
ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is what I’ve been wanting to do for the series for over two decades. We’ve got awesome throwbacks, and tons of new features, but most importantly, it plays like a sequel to the original game and we know new players and old fans alike will love it.
