The first gameplay trailer has arrived for Toki - an '80s arcade classic set to make its comeback on Nintendo Switch before the end of the year.
Initially released back in 1989, this cult 2D action platformer was known for its challenging difficulty, tasking players with helping a warrior who has turned into a chimpanzee and going on a quest to get used to his new form. The remake of this arcade classic has been completely redrawn and re-orchestrated by Philippe Dessoly and Pierre Adane, the masters behind the original Amiga conversion of the game back in the '90s.
As had already been announced, a 'Retrollector Edition' for the game is set to be released (and will actually arrive slightly before its digital counterpart in Europe) containing extra goodies for anyone looking to treat themselves. Here's what you get inside:
- The box version of the Toki game
- A mini arcade machine with the game’s colours to house the Nintendo Switch screen!
- An exclusive 16-page Toki comic, with an original story illustrated by Philippe Dessoly
- 2 prints
- 1 sticker sheet
The Retrollector Edition will be released on 22nd November in Europe and on 4th December in North America; the digital version of the game will be available worldwide directly from the Switch eShop on 4th December.
