European Wii U owners who have been waiting for the Toki Tori 2 patch will be pleased to know that it’s now live and ready to download. The update, which fixes a variety of bugs in the game, is available as of today on the Wii U eShop. The game’s developers Two Tribes say it will be released in North America shortly, but a date is yet to be confirmed.
Game developers Two Tribes has revealed that a patch will be released to address some of the issues in Toki Tori 2 for the Wii U. The platformer – featuring a delightful fluffy bird – has been quietly nesting in the Nintendo eShop for over three weeks, but the developers thought it was high-time to provide an update for those niggling problems players have experienced. The update has been submitted to Nintendo and is said to be coming soon. Here’s a list of the issues that has been fixed or changed:
- Improved the flow of the game after reaching the room with the ‘thing’
- Added another super-secret area
- Fixed a bug where Toki Tori was invisible after returning to the game
- Fades between levels now fade the audio too
- Simplified the puzzle in the underwater passage
- Fixed an issue when the TokiDex was completed in the photo room
- Some back- and foreground elements got a fresh coat of paint
- When all the collectibles in a level (or the entire game) are collected a melody will play to notify the player
- Fixed a rare bug where the player completed the game, but the end scene wouldn’t trigger
- Various level tweaks, based on Miiverse feedback
After predictions that Toki Tori 2 would storm the European eShop chart just days after its release on April 4 for Wii U, we have certainly not been disappointed. Two Tribes tweeted earlier today “People! We’re the number 1 selling game in the European eShop!” along with a picture as solid proof. The game developers’ next goal is to take the top position in the US charts – do you think they can do it?
Toki Tori 2 has arrived in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Just like its developer, Two Tribes, promised, the puzzle game launched with a slightly discounted price, as you can purchase it for $13.49 until April 9th, which is when it will be priced at $14.99.
Meanwhile, on Nintendo 3DS, the original Castlevania is now available on Virtual Console and costs $4.99 to download. And a major update for Colors! 3D, which you can read about here, has arrived in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
Even before its official launch on April 4, Toki Tori 2 is set to leave its competitors in the shadows and rocket to the top of the European eShop sales. This may be due to the generous 10% discount the game’s development team Two Tribes has given to fans, in order to reward them for their long-standing patience.
But Toki Tori 2 is not the only game that has seen a price-cut on the eShop recently, as four Ubisoft titles for the Wii U have joined the ranks. The permanent discount, which is active from April 4 also, can be found on the following games:
- Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth €29.99/£23.99 (Was €49.99/£39.99)
- Rabbids Land – €29.99/£23.99 (Was €49.99/£39.99)
- Sports Connection – €29.99/£23.99 (Was €49.99/£39.99)
- Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013 – €29.99/£23.99 (Was €49.99/£39.99)
Two Tribes, the development team behind Toki Tori, have announced via their official blog that Toki Tori 2 will receive a launch discount of ten percent to thank gamers for their patience.

Two Tribes has officially announced that Toki Tori 2 will be released on April 4th. The game was scheduled to be released in March, but the date was put back as the developer missed a crash bug. The plan was then to launch Toki Tori 2 at the end of March, but that coincides with the Games Developer Conference in San Francisco, where the game could be overlooked due to all the announcements. The developer has finally settled on April 4th to launch the game. Will you be purchasing Toki Tori 2?
Two Tribes, the developer behind Toki Tori 2, have said that they will add a level editor and Miiverse support via a patch post launch. We already know that Toki Tori 2 will feature the lucrative off-TV play, but soon you’ll be able to create your own levels and puzzles using the Wii U GamePad. Two Tribes also say that eventually you will be able to create levels with the editor, then share them via MiiVerse.
“As you’ll know if you’re on the Steam alpha list, the editor we use to make the game is pretty darn powerful. We’d love you to be able to create your own puzzles, and the Wii U GamePad lends itself to this pretty well.”
“What if you could create levels with the editor, then share them via MiiVerse and allow others to open them with a single click? What if this could tie in with levels created in the Steam version? All of this might come true!”
Two Tribes says it can’t give an exact release date for its upcoming puzzle game, Toki Tori 2, yet. However, the game, which was once scheduled to launch late last year, will be in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U before this Spring, according to the developer.
“Unfortunately at this point we aren’t able to give you a specific release date. It will definitely arrive Q1 2013, so before spring, that’s all we can say now.”
Toki Tori 2 will soon be released in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
