Some man went to someplace and met the man who created Earthworm Jim. The man said that the Earthworm Jim making-man said that Earthworm Jim 4 is coming to the Wii. I read what that man heard the other man say, so I decided to type this blog so that you can know that that's what that man said that the other man said. I am a journalist.
So what do you make of this rumor? The Wii makes sense for Earthworm Jim, as other "cartoon mascot" characters like Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, the Rabbids, and of course Mario, have done well on the console. Still, I can't help but think that Earthworm Jim might make the most money on XBLA, by keeping the budget of the game small, and cashing in on all the Castle Crashers fans out there. Earthworm Jim was one of the original "f*cked up cartoon" games that are so popular with the kids on XBLA these days. It's hard to imagine that a new EWJ game couldn't find an audience there, but of course, a multi-platform release would be best for everybody.
Wherever Earthworm Jim 4 ends up, it better not have polygon-based graphics. I have absolutely no positive associations with Earthworm Jim 3D.
