Remember that poll Sega ran a while back on which game everybody wanted to see come to Xbox Live Arcade? For a while it looked like Earthworm Jim would emerge the victor, but Toejam and Earl pulled out the win in the end. Unfortunately for those who voted for the funky space duo, that may not even happen.
The problem – which is honestly sort of hilarious – is that Sega jumped the gun and doesn’t even own the rights to Toejam and Earl. That’s right! They promised us a game that they can’t legally give us! According to T&E designer Greg Johnson, Sega is currently in talks to acquire the rights, so everything may work out in the end. If it doesn’t, I’ll feel more than a little hornswoggled. There, I said it.
