'ToeJam & Earl' Wins Poll, Coming to Xbox Live Arcade

ToeJam & Earl centers on the titular ToeJam and Earl -- extraterrestrials who have crash-landed on Earth -- as they attempt to escape the planet. Players assume the role of either character and collect pieces of their wrecked spacecraft.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the SEGA Genesis, the company put up a poll asking fans which of their old classics it wanted as the next Xbox Live Arcade title. Earthworm Jim was initially included and in the lead, but a licensing issue with Gameloft, who is working on a remake for Wii/PSN/XBLA, forced SEGA to remove the game, making ToeJam & Earl the winner in the end. No further details or release dates were revealed yet.
