Toki Retrollector Edition announced and coming to the Nintendo Switch

Way back in 1989 a designer by the name of Akira Sakuma released a fantastic Arcade shooter platformer game in which you controlled an enhanced Ape transformed from a Human that could shoot energy balls from his mouth defeating strange creatures and finally defeat an evil Wizard.  It was a really good game that had a number of ports such as the NES, Sega Mega Drive, Atari Lynx, Atari ST, Amiga and Commodore 64. So you'll be pleased to know Microids will be bringing the remixed edition to the Nintendo Switch November 22nd 2018!

What's more Microids have also announced the Retrocollector Edition, which features Toki as a physical version, Toki BD (16p), as well as inclusive Lithographs, Stickers and even a mini arcade machine to host the Nintendo Switch giving it that extra retro feel. If that wasn't enough to whet your appetite then check out the latest info below which was posted to the main website.

For its grand return on Nintendo Switch, Philippe Dessoly, the artist for the original Toki on Amiga, the creator of Mr Nutz and of official artwork for Goldorak and Albator, is taking charge of the artistic direction. The remake will give players the chance to discover or revisit this 2D platform game, and face up to the different levels and enemies, each wilder than the last! Pierre Adane, developer of Toki declares, “I’m very proud to be able to be bringing Toki back to life. There is an immense amount of pleasure in working on a project like this. For some time now Philippe and I have felt like working together again, and I’m happy that that’s coming together with Toki.”
