Last night, a rumor circulated the Internet concerning a "confirmation" of Earthworm Jim 4 on the Wii. Unfortunately, it would appear that rumors of Earthworm Jim's return from death had been greatly exaggerated. Game creator Doug TenNapel has revealed that, although Interplay is interested in a new game, no such title is in development.

"I read the initial post by the guy who put up the drawing I did for him and almost NOTHING in the post he wrote was true," he explained. "I'm getting piles of letters asking me to confirm or deny the post and from what I've read it's total disinformation."

In our early discussions about the game, we had tentatively brainstormed ideas for the Wii. 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, by Interplay involving me!"

TenNapel also revealed that, while we can hope for an Earthworm Jim 4, there are many factors getting in the way, like assembling the original team, the financial situation, and everything else that affects a game that we, as fans, don't think about. I sincerely hope we get good (and real) EWJ news in the future, but Doug has warned that we can't believe anything we hear until it's screamed from a mountain by Interplay itself.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
