Gameloft is bringing another classic back to mobile. The company signed a deal for the famous Earthworm Jim brand from Interplay for all downloadable platforms they work on.

Besides mobile/iPhone, this means that the title will also show up on XBLA, PSN ans WiiWare. This move is even so important to the company, that it calls itself a publisher for downloadable games now instead of a mobile publisher.

"We are delighted to partner with Interplay to bring Earthworm Jim to multiple downloadable platforms," said Gonzague de Vallois, senior vice president, Gameloft. "The game, with its humorous and edgy style, is a great fit for today's gamer who craves a fully immersive experience that is fun and easily accessible. We look forward to delivering a fantastic game."

"Earthworm Jim resonates with millions of people worldwide and we are excited to have one of the best developers in the industry create this game for a new audience," said Herve Caen, CEO, Interplay. "Gameloft's creativity coupled with its innate knack for innovative games, makes us 100% confident that the result will be nothing short of stellar."
