Earthworm Jim Making a Comeback

The new game is being exclusively developed for the Intellivision Amico, a new console that is due to release in October 2020, essentially a remaster of the console from the 1980s. The composer and sound designer for the original Earthworm Jim games, Tommy Tallarico, is the CEO and President of Intellivision Entertainment.

Fans first look at the new Earthworm Jim title will come in the form of a livestream on May 4th at noon PT. The team will hold a design meeting and discuss their vision for the game during the stream.

“We have been talking about this moment for many years, it’s a dream come true to finally get the entire team back together. We’re looking forward to sharing a small part of our reunion and initial design meeting with fans from around the world,” said Tommy Tallarico in a press release.

Although the announcement doesn't offer any information on what the new Earthworm Jim might play like, knowing the nature of the console it will probably play like the originals. The launch of the Intellivision Amico is still a ways off so be sure to keep checking back with us here at for all the latest details!

According to Iron Galaxy players will be able to "Travel horizontally and vertically, perform wall runs, and use your whip as a vault to perform devastating air assaults. Master dynamic combat maneuvers to effectively traverse the giant beasts and expose their weak points, progressing along different skill trees to develop a path best suited to your play style." This all takes place in a dynamic world that offers a main story as well as side quests.

The game will be shown off at E3 this year at a behind closed doors demo that will offer more insight into the game.
