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.
