SEGA SEQUEL: New Toejam & Earl Game In The Works

This one definitely slipped under my radar.
According to the official Facebook page, a brand-new Toejam and Earl game is currently in production.

Just a week ago, the Toejam and Earl Facebook page posted this message:

Greetings from Funkotron! We haven’t been posting as often lately because we’ve gotten really busy with the new TJ&E game. We will be making some announcements in a probably 3 or 4 weeks, when we have something we can show, and will be able to share lots of information with you.

Little else has been said since the posting but included with the statement were a handful of drawings (below) that appear to be early concept art for the purported sequel. This game will actually mark the fourth Toejam and Earl outing since their first adventure on the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive in 1991 (5th if you count Ready, Aim, Tomatoes).  Designed by Greg Johnson, the first title was a well-received co-op dungeon crawler starring two alien rappers trying to make their way back home.  The game spawned two full-fledged sequels- 2D platformer Panic On Funkotron and the lesser known XBox exclusive Toejam and Earl III: Mission to Earth.

While we wait for an announcement and pray that it’s not a crappy F2P mobile endless runner, take a look at this concept art.
