In a recent Sega poll, fans said that they wanted Toejam and Earl be re-released for the Xbox Live Arcade. It's not a done deal yet, though.

"[Sega] sort of got ahead of themselves a little bit and didn't realize that they don't have the rights to the property," T&E designer Greg Johnson told Joystiq. "It's an easy mistake to make – with every game contract being different, and new versions of contracts for releases always superseding old contracts, and rights' expiration dates, etc. Anyway, I'm waiting to hear back from them to pick up the conversation. The ball is in their court at the moment."

Alright, so it's not completely dead in the water. If that's not enough of a silver lining for you, read the rest of the interview. Johnson, now head of HumaNature Studios, mentions that he's interested in making a fourth Toejam and Earl for the DS and provides some gameplay details.
