Retro Platformer “Save me Mr. Tako: Definitive Edition” Comes to PC, Switch on 5 May
Independent game developer Christophe Gallati recently announced that Save me Mr. Tako: Definitive Edition will release on 5 May for Steam PC and Nintendo Switch.
Originally released in 2018 as Save me Mr. Tako: Tasukete Tako-San, this new “Definitive Edition” is an enhanced version of the retro-inspired platformer. Unfortunately for those who already purchased the original release, there is no way to upgrade to the Definitive Edition outside of purchasing the game again. This is due to Galati and publisher Nicalis parting ways. Drama stuff, you know?
Here’s the full breakdown of Save me Mr. Tako from the game’s Steam page:
Dive into a great adventure in the Game Boy era!
In a world where humans and octopuses are at war, Tako is a pacifist little octopus who rescues a woman from drowning one stormy night. A fairy sees this act of bravery and grants him the ability to survive on land. As he travels across the world, Tako defies his family and his people to try to resolve conflicts between Humans and Octopuses, plunging him into the very roots of this dysfunctional world.
6 worlds and more than 50 levels to explore
50 different hats that Tako can wear to gain special abilities
Extensive character dialogue with many unique and memorable NPCs
Side quests, puzzles, mini-games and 16 different dungeons to explore
Multiple selectable palettes to change the game’s color scheme
New difficulty modes and rebalancing of the original game
Hint System, Auto palette option and more quality of life improvements
Sound system to listen to the soundtrack composed by Marc-Antoine Archier
New border images and additional content
Save me Mr. Tako: Definitive Edition is scheduled to release on Steam PC and the Nintendo Switch eShop on 5 May. There is also a physical version in the works coming from Limited Run Games, but no release date has been confirmed.
