It hasn't taken very long for the GameBoy Advance to establish itself as an RPG-friendly
platform. With Breath of Fire ports and a
Suikoden original already on the
way, games like Tomato Adventure
only add to its role-playing appeal. New details regarding the Nintendo-published GBA
exclusive place the tale in Ketchup Kingdom. The game's story finds its hero, a tomato-hating
young boy by the name of Demille, on a quest to save his girlfriend, Paslan, abducted by the
tomato-loving King Abira.
In order to thwart the evil schemes of Abira and
his minions, the "superkids," Demille makes use of a slew of weapons, referred to as "gimmicks."
Developed by AlphaDream, Tomato Adventure
is slated for release in Japan sometime in
January of 2001. So far there has been no confirmation of a North American release.
