Didn't Sega announce a while back that TJ & E won a contest and that it would be an arcade title? What happened? Its been a long time and still no news. Last I heard is that creator owns the rights and not Sega to the characters but how did it come out Wii's virtual console back in 2006?

i would LOVE to have this game on LIVE arcade!! Online and local Co-op, and Achievements. maybe throw in a few new secret levels. Just make sure they skip TJ&Earl 2

Awesome game.

Played it for hours on end back in the day.

It was the first VC purchase I made for the Wii.

I'd probably buy it again for the 360.

Greg Johnson has a dispute with SEGA regarding the rights ownership to the series.

Apparently, SEGA wasn't supposed to release them on Nintendo's Virtual Console service.

The amount that I need this game on the live arcade can't be measured by modern mathematics.
