It’s been a bumpy ride since then – with the game even delisted on the eShop, but now, it’s bounced back.
The new Definitive Edition will be receiving a Limited Run Games physical release on consoles. More details about the new digital release will also be revealed later down the line.
In a separate blog post, the game’s developer Christophe Galati revealed the definitive version of the game would arrive digitally on 5th March:
“I waited a long time to get the game patched and I can’t wait for you to experience the game in all its glory in this Definitive Edition.”
Unfortunately, if you’ve already got a copy of the original game – you’ll still have to buy this new version again because of the publisher swap:
“Last year for the game’s two year anniversary I announced that I had parted away with my former publisher Nicalis, resulting in the game being removed from the stores (Steam and Nintendo eShop). Because the game was delisted and is now under a new publisher, we are unable to patch the existing game and instead need to deliver it as a new title. Unfortunately this means anyone who previously purchased the original game will still have to purchase this new version to enjoy all the new content. I contacted both Valve and Nintendo to see if I could do a special discount for players with the original version in their library but unfortunately it’s impossible.”
So, there you go – Mr Tako is finally getting a physical release. Will you be buying this game again, or trying it out for the first time? Leave a comment down below.
