The classic arcade hit Toki is coming to the Switch this year from publisher Microids. It will be available on November 22 in Europe, and December 4th in the US. The digital version of the game will be launched worldwide on December 4th.
Toki is a warrior who lives peacefully in the jungle with his sweetheart Miho. Suddenly, a terrifying voodoo sorcerer Vookimedlo and heinous demon Bashtar appear out of nowhere and kidnap Miho. They also turned Toki into a chimpanzee.
The former warrior must master his new form, and devoid of his traditional weapons, use his powerful jaws to spit projectiles at his enemies. During his adventure to save Miho, Toki will find objects that will help him complete his quest; from a football helmet to a pair of flippers and a snorkel.
This 2D platformer was originally launched in 1989 in arcades and became an instant hit with its solid gameplay and challenging difficulty. The remake of this cult classic has been completely redrawn by the programmers behind the 1990’s Amiga conversion, Philippe Dessoly, and Pierre Adane.
The game will also launch with a collectors edition, called the “Retrollector Edition”, which will include the following.
- The boxed version of the Toki Game.
- A Mini arcade machine with the colors of the game to house the Nintendo Switch console.
- An exclusive 16-page Toki comic, with an original story illustrated by Philippe Dessoly.
- 2 prints
- 1 sticker sheet
