ToeJam & Earl - Steve Watts

The Karateka remake being headed up by original creator Jordan Mechner will hit Xbox 360 on November 7, for $10 (800 Microsoft Points). The ToeJam & Earl Collection, which brings together original game and Panic on Funkotron, will release the same day.

The dates were confirmed by Microsoft's Major Nelson. Karateka is slated for release on the PlayStation Network as well, likely close to the XBLA date. The two ToeJam & Earl games are being released separately on PSN for $4.99 each.

Confirming an earlier report, both ToeJam & Earl and its sequel Panic on Funkotron are coming next to Sega's "Vintage Collection" on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The games will hit PSN on November 6 for $4.99 each, and on Xbox Live Arcade as a bundle for $10 (800 MSP).

Joystiq confirmed the releases after European announcements were made. Sega doesn't show any signs of slowing down its classic re-releases, as just yesterday word leaked of three fighters making a come-back as well.

The Sega Genesis classics ToeJam & Earl and its sequel, Panic on Funkotron, may be hitting the PlayStation 3 soon. Sega has been adding titles to the PlayStation Network as part of their "Vintage Collection" line, and sources claim the bizarre duo is about to have its day.

Siliconera reports that sources claim the early 90s titles are the next slated games, which seems believable enough. The branded Vintage Collections have included games like Sonic and the Monster World series, and we know Sega remembers the ToeJam & Earl series due to its PC re-release last year.

If you're under the age of 25, you might think "ToeJam & Earl" is a terrible name. And you are correct. But the 16-bit era brought us Boogerman and Earthworm Jim, so many of us fondly remember when the industry joined in thinking potty humor was hilarious.
