Meet the new Earthworm Jim, same as the old Earthworm Jim

Yesterday’s announcement that Gameloft had picked up the rights to give your Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii a case of the worms wasn’t exactly clear on what form said creepy-but-not-crawly would take. Would it be a new game, or would it be a port of a classic earthworm escapade? G4 asked Gameloft, and promptly received an answer.

“A Gameloft representative has confirmed to me it’s a remake of the 1994 original game released on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, not a new game,” reads G4′s post.

So that’s that.

    It’s *still* not clear. Is it a remake or a port of the original?

    Also, the SNES and Mega Drive versions weren’t identical. The entire G4 quote is ridiculous.

    The quote says “remake” (not port) of the original (EJ1).

    Pretty clear to me.
