Gameloft has revealed to Nintendo Power that it’s iPhone remake of Earthworm Jim is will be released on DSiWare.

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.

Gameloft and Interplay are in cahoots to put Earthworm Jim back on the map, it would seem. The two companies have partnered to develop and publish a new title in the series that will eventually grace the likes of PSN and WiiWare.
First, though, Jim’s making a month-long pit stop on Xbox Live Arcade, as a timed exclusive. The early bird gets the Earthworm Jim? Something like that, we guess.
The game’s out sometime during the last quarter of 2009. Pertinent press is after the break.

Interplay has announced earnings of $6 million for fiscal 2007 and plans to gain funding for a Fallout MMO.
Outlining a roadmap for the company’s future, a statement said that “management is working to secure funding for the development of a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) based on the popular Fallout franchise. Interplay sold Fallout in 2007 while obtaining a license back, under certain conditions, to create and develop a Fallout MMOG.”
In addition, and almost unbelievably, the company has also announced intentions to create sequels to Earthworm Jim, Dark Alliance, Descent, and MDK.
The return of Interplay as a resurgent concern in games publishing was signalled by the semi-launch of Interplay.com at the beginning of March.
