Sega, master of secrets, has yet again let another unannounced game slip by: Toejam & Earl Vintage Collection. Achievements listed here: http://exophase.com/game/svc-toejam-earl-xbox-360/achievements/
For those too young to have ever played Toejam & Earl, you're in for a treat. The original remains one of the most unique games ever to grace a console. Toejam & Earl was a 90's-influenced funk-themed roguelike for the sega genesis with an outrageous sense of humor. Featuring endless randomized worlds, it hit a peak that I feel none of the sequels ever came close to approaching.
Toejam & Earl 2 changed things up drastically, moving the game from a randomized rougelike to a platform game that, while extremely high quality and very fun, wasn't quite up to the standard of the first.
The third Toejam & Earl game was Ready, Aim, Tomatoes!, a menacer lightgun game that took place on the Earth of Toejam & Earl 1. Nearly all the enemies from the original game returned, including my favorites, the boogey man and the mad dentist.
Many years after Ready, Aim, Tomatoes was released, a fourth TJ&E game, confusingly named Toejam & Earl III, was released for the Xbox. It largely replaced Funk with Hip-Hop, and wasn't nearly as good as the rest of the series, but I still have a soft sport in my heart for it.
The Toejam & Earl games had an incredibly heavy focus on multiplayer, more so than most games at the time. They're all co-op affairs, and a good portion of each game's features aren't available to you unless you're playing with a friend. For example, in Toejam & Earl 1, you could gain exp by donating portions of your life to your partner by highfiving them.
The Toejam & Earl collection will without a doubt contain Toejam & Earl 1 and 2, and perhaps Ready, Aim, Tomatoes (which is, sadly, largely forgotten). I wouldn't count on TJ&E3 being included. However, the bigger piece to take away from this is that Sega apparently has some sort of deal with TJ&E Inc in place - Sega doesn't own Toejam & Earl. If Sega has been dealing with TJ&E Inc lately.... perhaps they're in Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed? Dare to dream.
