Tomba! 2, Double Dragon, and other PS1 classics slated for PSN

Over the next six weeks, MonkeyPaw Games is digitally releasing six import games from the original PlayStation era.

The "Retro Rush" event begins tomorrow, the publisher announced on its blog: "Starting January 14, with Double Dragon, we’ll bring a new PSone Classic on the PSN for the PlayStation 3, Vita, and PSP each week. It all leads up to the biggest, most anticipated game — Tomba! 2 — on February 18."

MonkeyPaw had previously said it wouldn't include Tomba! 2 (subtitled The Evil Swine Return), but "one of those serendipitous things [happened] where all the pieces fell into place at the right moment."

Below is the complete lineup:

  • Wolf Fang
  • Lucifer Ring
  • Hyper Crazy Climber
  • Double Dragon
  • The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny
  • Tomba! 2

MonkeyPaw helped create the PlayStation Network Import section and filled it with digital rereleases such as Tomba!, Class of Heroes 2, and Arc the Lad.
