It’s taken ten years, a year and a half of development and a delay last December, but Dutch developers Two Tribes’ latest game, Toki Tori 2 will launch for Nintendo Wii U on April 4.
Two Tribes revealed the games worldwide release overnight on their official blog, accompanied by an all-new trailer (shown below).
Toki Tori 2 is described as an open world puzzle game, with just a smidgen of platforming goodness thrown in for god measure, and stars the titular Toki Tori who once again sets out on adventure to stop a mysterious dark force.
Although the game is being developed for, and will release on at a later stage, PC, the Wii U version heavily integrates the consoles unique features – primarily the GamePad controller and Miiverse.
Off-TV play is of course a thing, easily allowing you to switch the action onto the controller, while you’ll be able to make comments and upload images from the game onto Miiverse.
The much discussed level editor mode will most likely not be available at launch, and will be included in a future patch. Once apart of the game, Two Tribes are hoping to allow players to share their levels with each other via Miiverse.
And perhaps one of the most exciting Wii U features Toki Tori 2 boasts is how the Wii U GamePad can be used like a camera to snap photos of in-game creatures, which vital information about them is then stored in the TokiDex. If this sounds familiar then maybe you played the cult classic Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap. We don’t know about you, but this makes us giddy!
Who’s excited for this one? Toki Tori 2 is shaping up to be a blockbuster eShop title. It’ll be available in all regions in just two weeks time, April 4th.
