PlayStation 5 is bringing back a PS1 classic we never thought we'd see again

PlayStation 5 is bringing back a PS1 classic we never thought we'd see again

Who remembers Tomba?

Place your hand in the air if just the mere thought of Sony’s PlayStation 1 era makes you nostalgic.

My hand is raised.

The PlayStation 1 doesn’t just hold fond memories for me, it's the console to which my very earliest gaming memories are tied.

Oh the hours I spent playing Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, and Croc: Legend of the Gobbos on repeat.

I’m sure you have your own personal favorites. From Silent Hill to Metal Gear Solid, the PlayStation 1 birthed so many incredible franchises we still enjoy today.

It also spawned many other IPs that we’ve not heard from in a long, long time.

Anyone remember Tomba?

This forgotten relic of the past is, I’m very excited to say, returning on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC courtesy of an upcoming release by Limited Run Games.

ICYMI: Silent Hill 2 Remake is set to launch on 8 October. Take a look at the game in action below.

Developed by Whoopee Camp, Tomba is a platform-adventure game that launched back in 1997. Tomba himself is, well, a feral child who’s attempting to take back his grandfather’s bracelet from an evil colony of pigs.

It’s an odd concept on paper but trust me, it works.

Tomba hasn’t exactly endured in the public consciousness like other PS1 platformer icons but the game will soon make its grand return courtesy of Limited Run Games.

The Tomba! Special Edition is set to launch on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on 1 August.

“As the titular Tomba, you leap, bite, and throw your way across stunning 2.5D landscapes on a quest to overcome a deplorable cadre of nefarious pigs,” the synopsis teases.

“Along the way, you’ll explore ancient relics, discover fascinating characters, unlock thrilling quests, and unearth hidden treasures. It’s a platforming adventure that perfectly fuses linear and nonlinear gameplay styles.”

In this new version, players will be able to save anywhere, rewind, toggle for analogue control, enjoy a remastered soundtrack, and visit a ‘museum’ filled with original packaging, manuals, and never-seen-before artwork.

Pricing and physical editions are set to be unveiled in the near-future, and we can’t wait to hear more.
