    A 4th ToeJam and Earl game is a possibility according to a new interview with Majesco’s Assistant Product Manager Pete Rosky.

    When asked what classic game series he would personality like to see get a reboot, ToeJam and Earl was the first game name to leave his lips.

  • Question: If you could pick any classic game series to reboot with a similar art style, which one would you choose?

    Pete Rosky: I would love to see ToeJam & Earl come back, actually. I think that’s my answer. I mean, it was pretty funky as it was, but just imagine that now. You know, some new music — some licensed stuff.

    The ToeJam and Earl series was extremely popular in the 8-bit days as a highly unique, funky, adventure game/RPG/Rogue-like. The original ToeJam and Earl was re-released for Wii Virtual Console in 2006 and ToeJam and Earl II in Panic on Funkatron was released for Virtual Console in 2007. The last game in the series was the poorly recieved ToeJam & Earl: Mission to Earth for the Xbox 1, released in 2002.

      Much of what this says about Toejam & Earl isn’t true. Metacritic gives Toejam & Earl 3: Mission to Earth a 71 and the user rating is 8.2. That would be far from being “poorly recieved.” Also, the original was from the 16 bit era, not 8 bit.

      Lastly, and this is merely my opinion, but I don’t think licensed music would be the best thing for Toejam & Earl 4. I think part of the fun of the original lie in the quirkiness of both the presentation and music. The music was completely original and was actually really good. I would actually go as far as to say that I would rather listen to the soundtracks to Toejam & Earl 1 and 2 than most of what plays on the hip hop radio station. Sorry.

      Good luck Majesco. I hope you don’t bring about another one of those shoddily made videogame remakes we are so used to seeing lately.
