Two Tribes: Toki Tori 2 Is A Metroidvania-Style Experience

"Count" us in

Toki Tori 2 may have been subject to delays, but we're still just as excited about playing it as we were way back when it was first announced.

The hype has now risen to a new level as developer Two Tribes has taken to Twitter to share this piece of information:

For those who don't know, "Metroidvania" is a term coined to describe Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, a PlayStation title set in the Castlevania universe which takes elements from Nintendo's Super Metroid. The term has since been applied to subsequent Castlevania titles which have adopted a similar approach (Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow on the Nintendo DS being one such example).

That's not the only piece of good news Two Tribes have shared on Twitter. Co-founder Collin van Ginkel has also revealed that the game is finally nearing completion:

Oh heck yes. Loved Symphony of the Night (haven't had a chance to play any of the others sadly) so this should be great.

I am stoked. Toki Tori was one of the best things about GBC.
Now, let's talk l talk about the possible imminent death of Nintendo...

"Did you know Toki Tori 2 is structurally a Metroidvania style game? And if so, does that sound good to you?"

Good? My interest in the game just passed from 0 to 100 XD
No offense to the serie, I simply don't know well Toki Tori and wasn't planning to learn more; but if Toki Tori 2 is a metroidvania game then I can't wait to know more about it ^_^

I'm looking to try out the first game before this comes out. Should I get it on 3DS VC or WiiWare?

This sounds awesome! You just can't top the "Metroidvania" style. I hope this will also be released on the 3DS in some form in the future.

The original was great. Big shoes to fill. Love to see some gameplay footage of the updated version.

I don't like the term Metroidvania. It has come to mean "open world platformer" with no other specific implications. The game does look interesting, though.
