Toki: release date and Retrollector Edition announced
Toki is a cult classic 2D action/platform game, originally released back in 1989 on Arcade.
And almost 30 years later, the game is back in a brand new version on Nintendo Switch, featuring all-new graphics and re-orchestrated music. Philippe Dessoly (artist for the original version of the game, on Amiga) is the Artistic Director, with Pierre Adane taking care of development, and music Raphel Gesqua composing the music. The trio already worked together on Mr Nutz.
Yesterday, Microids announced that Toki will be released on November 22nd in Europe and North America. It was previously announced only for the Nintendo eShop, but a physical edition was also teased. And it turns out the physical edition is none other than the Retrollector Edition (only available in Europe)!
It includes the following:
- The box version of the Toki game
- An exclusive 16-page Toki comic, with an original story illustrated by Philippe Dessoly
- Sticker sheets
- A mini arcade machine with the game’s colors to house the Nintendo Switch™ screen!
Here’s a picture of the contents of the Retrollector Edition of Toki:
Finally, here’s details about the game itself:
Toki the warrior lived peacefully in the jungle with his sweetheart Miho. Appearing out of nowhere, the terrifying voodoo sorcerer Vookimedlo and heinous demon Bashtar kidnap Miho and turn the poor Toki into a chimpanzee! Unfortunately for his sweetheart, he has become a hairy, lethargic ape…
The former warrior must get used to his new form and, deprived of his traditional weapons, use his powerful jaw to spit strange projectiles at his enemies. During his adventure, Toki will find objects that will help him complete his quest, from a football helmet to a pair of flippers and snorkel.
Toki (Switch) comes out on November 22nd in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
