    TOMBA 2! I’ve been waiting for this ever since the first one was released on PSN!

  • icecoffemix

    Oh man, playing Tomba 2 on Vita should be glorious.

  • ZEROthefirst

    I see import in the message so does that mean we’re getting Tomba 2 with Japanese text? Either way it’s not a big deal because it’s been too long since I’ve played Tomba 2.

    • Exkaiser

      MonkeyPaw brought the first game to PSN in English, despite otherwise being an import company, so presumeably this should also be in English.

      • KyoyaHibari

        It was in English? Well crap. The trailer they had on PSN was in Japanese so I assumed the game was too. Definitely picking up both Tombas.

        • Exkaiser

          Hmm, I asked them right when it came out, but digging around now, there’s no evidence of it being in English. Weird! I might have been wrong, so my apologies

          • Daverost

            The Tomba on PSN is in English. Don’t worry, you’re right.

      • ZEROthefirst

        Didn’t know that (bought Tomba on PSN just never knew they brought it on and only do imports) either way it won’t be a big deal if it’s in English or not since Tomba’s not exactly what you’d call a dialogue heavy/important text game lol

  • Roberto

    man i love that double dragon game

    Strange that we’re getting an import apparently of Tomba 2. It’s not like it didn’t come out in America.

    Whoa, a road to memory lane.

  • Anthony Birken

    omg Tomba and Double Dragon! Had a poster up until a few years ago, killing me that I can’t find it upon moving :/

  • harmonyworld

    OMFG! TOMBA 2!!
    Duuuuuude!
    That game was stolen from me when I was kid by some workers that were replacing our windows!
    *le gasp* I thought I’d never be able to play this again since buying a copy now is expensive!
    Happiness!!!

      And this is why I hate having work done on the house when I’m not there. Sorry for your loss, but glad you are able to play the game again.

    • D-Omen

      I actually stole my copy of Tomba 2 from an acquaintance during a party at her house. There was all this stuff in plastic bags abandoned in a corner down in the garage, I started rumming through them with a friend of mine and, lo and behold, both Tomba games (though the first one was a pirated copy). We “salvaged” them and gave them a new home. :D

    Never really was a fan of Tomba, but Lucifer Ring looks like it could be fun. I’ll definitely be doing some research on it.

  • HassanJamal

    The Tomba was the bomb during the PS1 era :) Glad to see we’re getting more :D

  • Exkaiser

    I think the first Tomba is leagues better, but it’s good to see it on the PSN anyways.

  • Kornelious

    TOMBA 2! That is one of the first games I ever really played :D SOLD!

  • Detrimont

    wooo Tomba(aka tombi in PAL regions) 2, one of my favourite PS games, would’ve gotten 100% in it, but couldnt ever find a copy of 1 to get the save data needed to clock the sequel

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    So weird. EU PSN has had Tomba 2 for about 18 months. EU PSN still doesn’t have stuff like Parasite Eve 1, Xenogears and Wild Arms 2 and probably never will.

    Weird.

    Colour me impressed, I didn’t think anyone would be able to resist.

  • Edzo04

    Tomba 2 is possibly my all time favorite platform game. I am overwhelmed with joy right now
