A classic, reborn: Toki gameplay trailer released

Toki is set to make its comeback on the Nintendo Switch™ before the end of the year. The retrollector edition will be released on November 22nd in Europe and on December 4th in North America. The digital version of the game will be available worldwide on Nintendo eShop on December 4th.

Initially released in 1989 on arcade, this cult 2D action platformer seduced a whole generation of players with its challenging difficulty. The remake of this arcade classic has been completely redrawn and re-orchestrated by Philippe Dessoly and Pierre Adane, the architects behind the original Amiga conversion of the game back in the 1990s.

The Retrollector edition will include:

  • The box version of the Toki game
  • A mini arcade machine with the game’s colors 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

Toki’s story:
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.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
