Two Tribes’ Toki Tori 2 will be released this year as a downloadable title from Steam and the Wii U eShop. Two Tribes co-founder Collin van Ginkel says that Toki Tori 2 is being developed for Nintendo’s new system because of three reasons: the brand-new Wii U GamePad, the console’s powerful hardware, and the supposition that Nintendo is committed to its online strategy with the Wii U.
Moving onto Wii U specifically, can you share why you chose to release this on Nintendo’s new system?
“A new controller, more powerful hardware and a Nintendo that seems truly committed to their online strategy. What more could we wish for!”
Are we correct in assuming that this is a download title? If so, what are your impressions so far, if any, of the eShop setup on Wii U?
“It will most definitely be a downloadable title. We haven’t released a boxed game since 2008 and don’t plan on doing that anytime soon. As for the shop, I commend Nintendo for moving forward with new features such as full downloads of retail titles, which bodes well for the future.”
