ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove coming to Switch

This is the best thing in the world for me. I couldn't be happier about this. I am SUCH a huge fan of the original game, and to a lesser extent, it's sequel. This new title looks SO great!

Now lets pray for Cuphead for Switch, Very Please ;p.

It can't, its an Xbox console exclusive (they funded it)

Yeah for the time being I think that's only coming to Xbox and PC due to some deal with Microsoft. I dunno if Microsoft are actually funding it though, it might just been a timed exclusivity deal.

He's talking about Cuphead, not Toejam & Earl

Oh, sorry. It wasn't a reply so I thought he was talking about ToeJam and Earl... :/

It was a reply, though.

But I understand the confusion. No harm, no foul

The other day, I was thinking about how cool it would be for this to come to Switch. Great to see it's a reality!

RMC, so I've never played any games in this series...but I remember about a month or so back on the podcast MomBrain mentioning it's her favorite game OF ALL TIME. You also supported her opinion.

Knowing nothing about this series, is this a good place to jump in or do I need to revisit the original game (don't even know what the original game is or what system it was on)?

Also, is this a brand new game, or something previously released on other systems?

Either way, so glad Switch might be a home for Indies to spread their creative wings.

The original was on genesis. I had endless hours of fun playing in on the Wii VC. It's a slow paced, randomly generated world where you and a friend look around casually for the missing pieces of your space ship. The game hands down had the funkiest song in the entire video gaming world.
The sequal was ok. It was a side scrolling 2D platformer. Then the third one was on Xbox. Never played it.

This new one is going back to the style of the 1st one, successfully kickstarted by the original creator last year.
If you have access to the Wii VC, I say pick it up and pull an all nighter with a friend.
If not wait for the Switch release!

Nice... thank you SCMAKO!!
