Two weeks ago we had the scoop
that Earthworm Jim - The Complete Series
is coming to DVD from VEI (Visual Entertainment Inc.), but we didn't have a release date at the time. Now an Amazon.com pre-order listing (see button link below) shows that this title will be available on July 10th
. Cost, as previously reported, is $24.98 SRP, but you can get your copy bought in advance right now, at a discount.
If you've ever pre-ordered any title, then be certain to pre-order this one, as the State-side distributor for VEI, called Millennium Media Services (MMS...which *used* to be part of First Look Pictures, but isn't any longer, but that's why Amazon's listing currently shows "First Look" as the studio) has a policy that if there aren't enough copies of a title pre-sold to retailers, then MMS won't bother to ship the title to ANY of the sellers who ordered it. This is why so many VEI titles tend to get delayed, or even cancelled, in the USA. We know that our previous story about Earthworm Jim - The Complete Series
had a HUGE amount of interest, so hopefully that turns into pre-orders, meaning that everybody can actually get their copies. Tell your friends!
