ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! is bringing the game to new heights with the addition of two new modes. This latest addition to the game is a result of going through more than a hundred fan-requested changes.

Extreme Mode

The first mode is called Extreme Mode, and was among the top requests. In particular, veterans and long-time fans of the game wanted a retro difficulty that was like the original game. In order to unlock Extreme Mode, players need to finish Hard World. Extreme Mode offers players with more broken presents while also adding faster, harder, and smarter enemies. This mode also makes changes to all the characters stats and makes the gameplay that much harder compared to other modes. For those interested in comparing the difficulties directly, the first ToeJam and Earl can be played on the SEGA Genesis Mini.

Endless Mode

It's not just Extreme Mode as the game now also offers Endless World. This Mode is unlocked once players reach Level 10 on Extreme World. You get to strap on some rocket skates, get a bunch of tomatoes, and just get down to work. Even better, Endless has 1001 levels for you to play. This allows you to go beyond the maximum rank of "Funklord" and level up characters to strengths that are not possible in the core game.

According to Humanature Studios Founder Greg Johnson, fans of the game have long been asking for new game modes and it was hard to say no. He went on to say that hopefully these two modes are going to keep players busy for a while.

While update 1.5 does add the new modes, they are already playable on Steam. The new modes are available right now for the Xbox One, with a release to the PlayStation 4 scheduled for later this week. An update for the Nintendo switch is also set to arrive soon.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! is already available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Spain), and Brazilian Portuguese. Japanese language support is expected to be released before the end of the year.
