Back in March, Earthworm Jim 2 joined the Nintendo Switch Online library of Super Nintendo titles. The run-and-gun platformer by Shiny Entertainment first arrived on the 16-bit console in 1995. A trailer can be viewed on Nintendo's YouTube channel.

David Perry developed the original platformer for Mega Drive and Super Nintendo consoles in 1994. The scenario sprung from animator Douglas TenNapel's sketch of Jim, a regular earthworm granted athletic abilities by an astronaut suit and plasma blaster.

Earthworm Jim 1 & 2: The Whole Can 'O Worms is available for Windows through, bundled with the digital soundtrack for both games by Tommy Tallarico. The Earthworm Jim Anthology compilation is available for streaming on Spotify.

From the product page:
Jim wasn't always a studly super-worm. He was once just a spineless, dirt-eater with no real mission in his life... But then something unexpected happened. The evil Psy-Crow was transporting a super suit, built by the genius Professor Monkey-For-A-Head, to Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed, Slug-For-A-Butt, but along the way it was stolen by a rebel. Although Psy-Crow killed the rebel, the suit fell down to Earth, landing on an Earth Worm. That cosmic twist of fate placed Jim in control of an ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit. - Earthworm Jim 1+2: The Whole Can 'O Worms
