Product Overview:

Earthworm Jim®, one of the most beloved characters in videogame history, returns at long last, strapping on his ultra high-tech, indestructible super-space cyber-suit for an original adventure on the PSP (PlayStation®Portable) system. Earthworm Jim* is a side-scrolling, action-packed platformer, bursting with ear-tickling audio and world-class, cartoon-style animation, which tracks the intrepid hero's continued fight against the Queen and her allies, as well as his evolving relationship with Princess What's-Her-Name and friendship with the indomitable Peter Puppy.

Like its predecessors, Earthworm Jim features imaginative and outrageous characters, playground-like, open-level designs that are ripe for exploration, and a slew of puzzles, power-ups and zany environments. As the original set a benchmark for the absurd, expect Earthworm Jim for the PSP system to raise the bar for the gloriously bizarre on today's generation of portable gaming.
