Jungle-based arcade shooter/platformer Toki - which saw hit arcades in 1989 before arriving on consoles such as SEGA Mega Drive in the years that followed - is getting a brand new remake. According to developer/publisher Microïds, the game is set to arrive by the end of 2018.

Since it's almost 30 years since the original version launched, the remake is going to look a little different, but with original artist Philippe Dessoly leading art direction and veteran developer Pierre Adane lending a hand to development duties, it sounds like the new version of Toki will be more than faithful to the old one.
