Interplay recently announced that they will be bringing some of their classic titles to the Virtual Console. These titles include Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2, Boogerman and Clayfighter. Rather than the SNES versions of the games, the Genesis versions will be made available.

No release date has been revealed for the four announced titles.
