MonkeyPaw Games today announced the side-scrolling platforming adventure Tomba! will make its PlayStation Network debut in the PSone Classics section on Tuesday, June 19th for $9.99.
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 games to use the Dual Shock feature. Help our pink-haired protagonist trample the seven evil pigs and retrieve his grandfather’s prized bracelet when Tomba! returns on June 19th.
“Tomba! is a title that completely fits the mold 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.”
