ToeJam & Earl get Back in the Groove thanks to Adult Swim Games

ToeJam and Earl logoToeJam & Earl appears to be coming back from the dead again, this time thanks to Adult Swim Games.

Looking a lot like the ToeJam & Earl that we so loved during the Sega Genesis days except with vectorized visuals instead of pixel art, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is in development and set to be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.  It’ll be available to check out during PAX West, and based on the first footage below, it’s looking pretty funky.

Check it out.

ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove Teaser | Adult Swim Games:

Coming in 2017 to PC and console.

Yo! Check it out… ToeJam and Earl are back on Earth once again, getting funky and running from those crazy Earthlings. Deja vu! (deja vu!) Here’s the basics… TJ decides it’s a good idea to “borrow” the Rapmaster Rocketship from Lamont (no point waking him up, right?), so he and Big E. can take Latisha and Lewanda out for a joyride. While they’re in orbit around Earth, maybe showing off just a little, TJ tells Earl to crank the bass on the speakers and “Press the RED button!” Unfortunately, that’s the button that says: “Black Hole – Do Not Press!!” (Doh!) You can pretty much guess the rest, TJ and Earl once again find themselves searching for the pieces of their Rocketship, collecting power-up presents left lying around by Santa, and dealing with the less-than-rational human beings.

Back in the Groove is a mash-up of the very best features from the classic console games (that’s one and two, y’all), with a pile of new features thrown in. The goal is to give old skool TJ & E fans a pure blast of funky nostalgia, and give new players a taste of the light-hearted, co-op play that is TJ & E.
