Two days ago, news came out that Epic might be looking into releasing Jazz Jackrabbit on new consoles. Yesterday, Cliffy Bleszinski, Epic Employee, made a throwaway remark about Jazz Jackrabbit 3 during a radio interview. A leak from our Toxic Bunny, now apparently an employee of Game Titan, gives us further information on this amazing new development.

Apparently, Jazz Jackrabbit 3 (full name: Jazz Jackrabbit 3: A New Hope) is indeed under development, by Game Titan. It is going to be based further on the Jazz Jackrabbit Advance Universe. Toxic Bunny has posted a thread on the forum with some details.

Choice quote:
  • To their credit, Game Titan have managed to come up with an incredibly innovative way of reconciling the new games’ canon with the old. At the start of the game, Jazz wakes up and realises that JJ1 and JJ2 were all a dream.
  • It is the morning of his wedding to Zoe Cottontail. AS the ceremony is about to begin, Dark Shell breaks in and steals Zoe’s diamond wedding ring. He escapes to the planet Carrotooine.

It is obvious that we can look forward to exciting times. Naturally, this site must adapt to stay current. We should be releasing Jazz3Online: A New Hope before summer.

Its too obvious of a prank if the “beta” image is hosted from someone else’s webspace and is not for the game at all.

Can you PLEASE post this again on a day that is not April the 1st? Thx.

With a name like “A New Hope”, it is rather obvious that this is a hoax. Nice try though.

Ha ha.

This was almost as good as Blizzard’s joke about Wisps being the new Alliance race.

But really. It sucks.

April fools… Dang, I thought that day was banned ages ago…

It was supposed to be obvious that it was a hoax. It was April 1st, so very few people were going to be fooled. It was intended simply as a laugh :)

When is it going to be released?
