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:
Did you know Toki Tori 2 is structurally a Metroidvania style game? And if so, does that sound good to you?— Two Tribes (@TwoTribesGames) February 25, 2013
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:
Heading into work for some last minute improvements. Last week of Toki Tori 2 is up ahead. Slightly frightening actually...— Collin van Ginkel (@collinvanginkel) February 24, 2013
