We have something truly special that we're thrilled to share with you today. Are you ready?
Sunsoft's cult classic Gimmick! is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and we're the publisher for the digital version in the West!
Gimmick! was originally released on the NES in 1992 in Japan and Scandinavia. The game follows the story of a small green youkai named Yumetaro who's mistaken as a toy and then given as a birthday present to a young girl. One night, the girl gets kidnapped by her other toys who are jealous of Yumetaro, and brings her to the land of Gimmick! Your quest is to maneuver through a variety of levels and use your special star-shooting power to defeat enemies and save the day.
Gimmick! Special Edition includes brand new bonus features such as achievements, time attack mode, save, load, and rewind functions, a gallery mode, and more. A physical version will also be available, published by our Freemode friends at Clear River Games. The developer of Gimmick! Special Edition, City Connection, is handling the publishing of the game in Japan.
Are you as excited as we are? Well, you can get a taste of what's in store at this year's Gamescom where the game will be playable on the show flow. Gamescom is kicking off on August 24-26, and Gimmick! Special Edition will be available in Retro Gaming area F068 at the Dragon Box booth. For more on Gimmick! Special Edition, tune into the virtual showcase that will go live on Sunsoft’s YouTube channel at 1:00 PM PDT / 9 PM BST later today.
Hope to see you there!
