MonkeyPaw Games has announced the forthcoming release of the side-scrolling platform adventure Tomba! as a PSone Classics title. Garnering almost universally positive reviews and high prices due to its rarity, Tomba! was the brainchild of Tokuro Fuijiwara, known for his creation of the Ghosts’n Goblins series as well as the producer of the Mega Man series.
The rich, interactive atmosphere of Tomba! helped create the title’s innovative gameplay, being one of the earliest PlayStation videogames to use the Dual Shock controller. Help our pink-haired protagonist trample the seven evil pigs and retrieve his grandfather’s prized bracelet when Tomba! returns next week.
“Tomba! is a title that completely fits the mould of MonkeyPaw Games, fantastic gameplay and a rare find. It’s being sold at prices more expensive than gaming systems these days. It still deserves your attention and that’s saying a lot after all these years,” said John Greiner, President and CEO of MonkeyPaw Games. “We’re committed towards bringing back classic and import titles for those who haven’t experienced them or simply want to re-live their retro roots. We’re excited that fans will finally be able to play this legendary gem.”
Tomba! will launch on PlayStation Network in the PSone Classics section on Tuesday, 19th June 2012 for $9.99 USD. The official trailer for the re-release is available below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Tomba!.
