PSOne classic Tomba! now available on PSN

MonkeyPaw has delivered on their number one most requested game from Japan. Side-scrolling plaltformer Tomba! gets retro nerds all excited because it mixes platforming, puzzle solving, RPG elements and pink hair into something that’s so unlike anything we see these days. It will be available today as a download on the PlayStation Network

This game was created by Tokuro Fujiwara, the man behind classics like Ghosts & Goblins and Mega Man. This time, instead of ghouls or robots, he went nuts with cavemen and pig snouts. Makes sense.

So, Sony. Not to beat a dead horse, but with all these great PSOne releases hitting the PlayStation Network, isn’t it time you made the playable on your newest game system? I’d love to take Tomba! for a spin on my Vita.
