Breaking news! Breaking news! It's finally time for the kids of the Ketchup Kingdom to celebrate. Because for the first time in history, Gimmick Land is now available to play in English!

Gimmick Land is an RPG for the GBC developed by AlphaDream, who are perhaps best known for their work on the beloved Mario & Luigi series. This game essentially serves as a prototype for Tomato Adventure, a game for the GBA that received an English fan translation in 2021. Gimmick Land was completely finished and intended for release, but Nintendo asked AlphaDream to rework the game in order to better suit their newest iteration in the Game Boy line of products. Before the "Nintendo Gigaleak" of September 2020, the only public documentation of Gimmick Land that existed was two screenshots.

Gimmick Land has you take control of DeMille, a young boy who must embark on a legendary journey to save his girlfriend from the clutches of the evil King Abira. In order to gain access to Gimmick Palace and save the day, DeMille must first take down the almighty 6 Super Kids. This light-hearted RPG features much of the same quirky humor and gameplay charm that is a common staple of AlphaDream's finest RPGs. Fans of the coveted Mario & Luigi series will notice the roots of many gameplay ideas that would soon be fleshed out, and further expanded upon in the iconic series.
