TOKI Gets New Trailer & Release Date

Some older gamers might remember TOKI, which appeared in the arcades way back in 1989. The game has received a complete visual overhaul and is coming to the Switch on December 4, 2018. Check out the latest trailer!

 

 

OFFICIAL PR:

Toki is set to make its comeback on the Nintendo Switch this 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 et re-orchestrated by Philippe Dessoly and Pierre Adane, the architects behind the original Amiga conversion of the game back in the 1990’s.

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.\

The physical Retrollector edition will also be available on December 4th and will include:

  • The boxed version of the Toki game

  • A mini arcade machine stand for your Nintendo Switch™!

  • An exclusive 16-page Toki comic book, with an original story illustrated by Philippe Dessoly

  • 2 prints

  • 1 sticker sheet
