Two Tribes has announced they’re working on a brand new project which is titled RIVE. The company adequately describe the game as ‘the metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter’. It’s a 2D shooter which will be coming in 2015 and will be at next month’s Gamescom event in playable form. Platforms have yet to be confirmed for RIVE.
Two Tribes has officially announced a release date for Swords & Soldiers HD. The upcoming remake of the side-scrolling strategy game was reportedly due for release this week, according to a Wii U eShop listing. But the Toki Tori developer has now detailed the game will arrive on Wii U on May 22, in both North America and Europe.
Launching for the minuscule price of $2.99 / €2.99 in the eShop, fans will be able to enjoy the game in lovely high-definition. The game also features a custom touch scheme on the Wii U’s GamePad, as well as a multiplayer mode playable on the GamePad and TV.
Two Tribes has announced permanent price drops on a trio of games within both the European and North American eShops. From Thursday as part of this week’s Nintendo download, fans of the indie developer will be able to purchase Rush, EDGE and Toki Tori for the prior “Early Bird” price of £1.79/ €1.99/$1.99 instead of the usual £3.59/ €3.99/ $3.99 on the Wii U eShop. Additionally, gamers will be able to grab EDGE on the 3DS eShop for exactly the same price. Let us know if you’ll be purchasing any of the Two Tribes games in the comments below.
Two Tribes have confirmed that Swords & Soldiers HD will be released on the Wii U eShop sometime during April/May. The developer says its just something to tide fans over until Swords & Soldiers 2 is released. The development studio says they have teamed up and upgraded it so it feels right at home on Wii U. Here’s how it makes use of the Wii U GamePad and HD capabilities of the system.

- Playable with Wii remote on TV.
- Multiplayer mode combining GamePad and TV.
- High res HD graphics compared to SD Wii release.
- Expected release end of April / Early May.
- Low TBA introduction price.
- The ultimate BBQ sauce.
Collin van Ginkel, the designer and one of the founders of Two Tribes, has told Nintendo Latino that the company has no intentions of making another Toki Tori game. Collin says that Toki Tori 2 didn’t perform as well as the company had hoped, so he says the development team will move on and tackle another genre.
“Well, since Toki Tori 2+ didn’t perform as well as we had hoped, we’ve decided that we are not going to be making a new Toki Tori game, ever. He’ll be back in some easter egg probably, but we are moving on and taking on other genres.”
Two Tribes have announced via Twitter that they plan to announce another title in their classics range for the Wii U eShop. The previous classics from the developer are Toki Tori, EDGE, and RUSH, so any guesses as to what’s next from Two Tribes?
Two Tribes has teased that ‘something pretty nice’ is coming soon to Wii U. Based on a tweet from the studio, several indie developers – including KnapNok Games, Gaijin Games, Black Forest Games and WayForward – have something cooking up for Nintendo’s console. Two Tribes will make its mysterious Wii U-related announcement later this week.
Update: Turns out the tease was for this Wii U eShop sale.
