Premium Edition Games has announced that both Jim & Dill The Legend of Weed N’ Stiff and Jim & Dill II: Bobson’s Revenge are getting physical NES releases, and you can snag each one starting June 11th, 2024.

For the first time in the band’s history, Weed N’ Stiff have released an adventure video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Join the adventure! Jim Weed and Dill Stiff have been kidnapped by the jealous Joe Bobson, leader of the rival band Moo Cow. You’ll have to battle your way through the seaside, mountains, caves, and snow to save the Weed N’ Stiff boys! Along the way, a cast of characters from the Weed N’ Stiff universe will help you on your quest. Sort of. At least there’s a lot of WS references and even some of the band’s music in glorious 8-bit.

Save the band from Joe Bobson’s clutches!

Jim & Dill - The Legend of Weed N’ Stiff (under the original title is Weed N’ Stiff) is ranked at #2 on Seth Abrams’ list of best homebrew RPG games!

This game stands shoulder to shoulder with some of the great huge adventures from the NES like Zelda 1 or Crystalis, featuring a big world and top down combat!

The game was even updated for this release to include a bunch of new features like

  • Vastly Expanded World
  • Music by Logan E. Schad and Dill Stiff
  • Vastly Expanded/Re-written Story and Dialogue
  • New Characters
  • A Secret Ending (Find It!)
  • New Enemies
  • Hidden Lizards
  • Secret warps/passages
  • Graphics and Cutscene Enhancements
  • New Hit Detection and Mechanics
  • Get Weapons Gradually
  • Various Quality of Life Improvements

Take control of the band Weed N’ Stiff, and fight to save Rock N Roll!

Jim Weed and Dill Stiff have had their musical essence stolen by Joe Bobson, singer of the rival band Moo Cow. You need to help the boys get their essence back, defeat Bobson once and for all, and restore the band’s legacy.

Venture from home, throughout the land, to outer space and beyond. Guided by the band’s #1 Fan, you will encounter enemies and mini bosses from the band’s 20+ year history (plus a few new surprises!).

Original game score written by Logan E. Schad, along with some classic 8-bit Weed N Stiff tunes!

Switching up the perspective, Jim and Dill II goes for a platforming action approach to the NES glory, and it does not disappoint! Full of humor, action and great NES style graphics, Jim & Dill II concludes the story started by the first, and feeling like a natural progression for a series during the NES era!
