December 4 is a great day for French retro game revivals on Switch ⊟
It’s a weird, amazing coincidence, but after years (in one case, nine years) of roller-coaster development, two French teams are launching their vintage-inspired games on Switch on the same day, December 4.
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom began as a Wonder Boy-inspired Flying Hamster game by The Game Atelier… then the Flying Hamster series connection was excised, the original Wonder Boy creator came on board, all the graphics and animation were redone, and now it’s a proper Wonder Boy sequel in everything but name.
The hand-drawn 2D remake of Toki was announced in 2009 as a WiiWare/XBLA game (with a PS3 version possible as well)… and has only now resurfaced, three Nintendo platforms later. And now, surprise! It’s just one of like a million Switch games coming out. I’m excited to see both of these!
