ToeJam & Earl 4 [DS – Cancelled]

ToeJam & Earl 4 [DS – Cancelled]

A new game in the ToeJam & Earl series was planned for the Nintendo DS, but later cancelled for the lack of interest from publishers. The original ToeJam & Earl is a crazy action game developed by Johnson Voorsanger Productions and published by Sega for the Mega Drive / Genesis in 1991. The story centers on the titular ToeJam and Earl, alien rappers who have crash-landed on Earth.

Greg Johnson still have the rights to the TJ&E property and as we can read on Joystiq:

As far as another entry in the series goes, Johnson told us he worked on a pitch for “TJ&E4” as recently as two years ago. Based on the pitch document and images, TJ&E4 was to be a DS remake of the first ToeJam & Earl, albeit with some new additions. “After the Xbox game released in 2002, I tried really hard to get a new TJ&E game off the ground – right up until about two years ago. I was really hoping to do a multiplayer DS version – but didn’t have any luck getting interest from any publisher – I approached pretty much all of them. Right now my studio is pretty busy with other stuff, but I plan to get back to seeing if I can’t make TJ&E games in the future.”

    It’s really to see a game like this get cancelled however if (ick) Shadow the Hedgehog got cancelled then I wouldn’t mind at all. Besides that game is a piece of trash anyway. I know fanboys and fangirls may not like hearing it but it’s the TRUTH.

    It’s a shame: TJ&E3 was one of the best Xbox games and, of course, the original on Genesis is a classic. (I was never terribly fond of 2, however.)

    It’s all a matter of opinion. Just like abstract art, IMHO. You probably just don’t like this genre of game; and that’s okay! But, there’s no need to go shoving opinions up the world’s mouth. You would’ve gotten off with the comment if you said “IMO, it’s the TRUTH.”. Nothing opinionated can be proven as truth. For example, I like this game, but you don’t. Neither of our opinions on the game can be proven true, therefore, we should be respectful of each other’s opinions.
    (Temas pri opinio. Ekzemple, kiel abstraktajn artaĵojn, miaopinie. Vi kredeble malŝatas tio ĉi ludon-ĝenron; kaj, okej estas! Aliflanke, ne estas kaŭzon pretendi ĉies opinio estas vin. Estis okej diri “Miaopinie, estas vero.”. Ne estas opinio tio estas vero.)

    This Nintendo Double Screen ToeJam & Earl 4 game looked good. A friend of my friend was into the series. Maybe it might come out on Nintendo 3DS?.

    Considering the poor sales of ToeJam&Earl 3 and the small fanbase of the francise it’s no wonder why the 4th one was cancelled.

    I loved Tj&E, I remember playing this game and loved it, I just searched for the game on NintendoDS, and came here, to be saddened to see it doesn’t exist :(

    This is exactly what I wanted: A new version of the original top-down rogue-like TJ&E with more of everything: levels, enemies, music etc. I’d love to see this happen somehow.
