    As one who's been waiting forever for Tomba! to get re-released in some fashion, I'm absolutely ecstatic. Gonna have to "borrow" my brother's PS3 this summer. And here's hoping Tomba! 2 gets the same treatment.

    Never played a Tomba! game in my life. I didn't grow up with the original Playstation so there's the reason why. Hell, I forgot who it was until I googled him just now. Anyone else in the same situation here?

    That's great news. I always wanted to play the Tomba! games but insane prices have kept me from picking them up. Hopefully they release Tomba! 2 as well. Another reason to pick up a Vita if I ever get the money. (seriously PS Classics is really starting to gain up on the Virtual Console, if it hasn't surpassed it by now.)

    I remember Tomba! 2 getting some major coverage back in game informer when I was a kid. It was being hyped as the greatest platformer since Super Mario Brothers 3. Sadly it didn't do well, probably because it didn't have an animal mascot.

    2d platformer. The sequel is a 3d platformer.

    Tomba! (and it's sequel) is an Action/Adventure-esque 2D platformer rendered with 3D graphics, similar to Klonoa, and more recently, the Classic levels of Sonic Generations. Tomba travels from location to location, upgrading his tunics and his weapons along the way, and solves a plethora of missions that are activated as you go through the game; some missions are story-related, some of them are extras that you can complete for points or extra items.

    The main goal of the game is to find and defeat the 7 Evil Pigs who have transformed the world into a psychedelic place, and whose entrances to their abodes are hidden from view (and oftentimes are hidden way out of the way regardless) until you gain their respective Evil Pig Bag to capture them, in order to regain Tomba's grandfather's bracelet. The world Tomba travels in is connected; if the road Tomba is on is traveled all the way through, he will eventually reach back to where he started at the beginning of the game. The sections of the world are unique, vibrant, have their own peculiar gimmicks and quirks, and are overall very memorable; I haven't played the original game in nearly a decade, and I can still vividly remember the second section of the game.

    Overall, it's a fun little gem that never takes itself too seriously - Tomba is a pink-haired superstrong kid with a monkey in drag and a flying dog with Dumbo-like ears for friends, and even uses his own stomach to store his items, including live baby chicks, instead of a bag or knapsack. The games basks in its zaniness and is so much better because of it.

    The first portion of the game.

    I remember the Tomba! series existing, but not playing them. But if it plays like Klonoa as stated... well, I do like those games, so hopefully these are good, too.

    I just watched the video and I am interested in the game, it looks like that it is fun to play.

    Oh yes! It's finally happening! I've been waiting for this for a long time. This game and the sequel are two of my favorite games of all time. I'm really looking forward to playing this wonderful game again.
