New earthworm jim game on the way, but this time for Wii saids 34thdimension.
New 2D game coming at some point
This is the age of retro sequels. With Sonic 4 on the horizon and Mega Man 9 and 10 nestled snugly on our hard drives, we're beginning to dream of which of our favorite games from the past might see the light of day again after all.
That's why we're hoping that Earthworm Jim 4, recently confirmed to The 34th Dimension at the Calgary Entertainment Expo by series creator Doug TenNapel for release on Wii, will be more like Jim's classic 2D predecessors and not his decent but less fondly remembered Nintendo 64 outing, Earthworm Jim 3D.
As the age of 3D adaptations of classic games has passed, it seems to us that anything but a proper old-style sequel is out of the question. We'll let you know when we hear more. Until then, speculate away!

Earthworm Jim 4 not coming to Wii. Or is it?
Colour us confused. Earlier today, it seemed that Earthworm Jim 4 was coming to Wii judging by a reported conversation between creator Doug TenNapel and website 34th Dimension. Now, Mr TenNapel has gone on-record to say that's not what he said. Here's what he had to say:
In our early discussions about the game, we had tentatively brainstormed ideas for the Wii, but that is NOT a confirmation like the guy posted. We haven't presented the idea to Nintendo and all of what the guy posted in the article could actually jeopardize a real EWJ game coming out on the Wii.Just goes to show that you can't always trust what a guy says he heard from another guy. Here's hoping this story didn't do too much damage to the chances of everyone's favourite power suit-wearing earthworm appearing on Wii in the near future.
