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.”

  6. With the new Pokemon 3DS XL, I will now most certainly wait for more colors.
    Because they ARE coming.
    And my Black 3DS is sexy. It’s also more portible. (It also has lines from the lower screen… GRAWER!!!) – But I still like it.

  7. Can’t they just let us download a game from our disc into a hard drive plugged into the console. That way we can play them without inserting the disc? The I would NEVER buy a download version of a game.
