HumaNature Studios has announced a delay for ToeJam & Earl Back in the Groove.
Previously set to launch during this fall, the game has now been delayed till 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC – a Limited Run Games-published physical edition is also planned for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
You can read a brief overview for the game from director Greg Johnson below:
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.
