Niche-focused publisher MonkeyPaw Games has revealed
a slate of six classic PSOne games set to launch digitally via the PlayStation Network through January and February.
The studio's Retro Rush
campaign will conclude on February 18 with the PSN re-release of Tomba 2: The Evil Swine Return
, a cult-favorite platformer originally released in 1999. MonkeyPaw previously oversaw a PSN reissue of the original Tomba back in 2012
Building up to Tomba 2
's return, MonkeyPaw will launch a new PSOne import game weekly, starting with tomorrow's release of Double Dragon
. No, it's probably not the Double Dragon
that you're thinking of – it's a port of a Neo Geo fighter
loosely based on the 1994 film adaptation of Double Dragon
, not the original 1987 arcade game.
MonkeyPaw will finish out January with PSN releases for Toshiba EMI's beat-'em-up Lucifer Ring
and Human's firefighting sim The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny
. February will see the release of Nichibutsu's arcade revamp Hyper Crazy Climber
and Data East's horizontally scrolling shoot-'em-up Wolf Fang
before Tomba 2
hits on February 18.
