Two Tribes: Wii U is "Perfect For Us"

Posted by Andy Green

Developer may use Miiverse to share user-created content

Puzzle-platformer Toki Tori 2 has suffered a few delays in the run up to its highly anticipated release on the Wii U eShop.

Two Tribes, the game's developer, told us in an interview last month that Nintendo was very understanding about the delay and told it to take its time in implementing the final few features.

In a recent interview with Nintendo Feed, Two Tribes spoke more about the level editor feature which allows players to create their own stages. It delved into how these user-developed levels could be shared with others over the internet, but said a decision on the method was yet to be made:

We want to make it super easy to share content with your friends or random people. We're looking into using MiiVerse for this, but haven't decided how this will be handled. We've been super busy getting the game to a finished state, so we'll worry about that later on.

Toki Tori 2 is only releasing on Wii U and Steam, and Two Tribes believe it's a perfect fit on Nintendo's system:

The combination of a Nintendo Audience, that we can reach through Miiverse and that can buy our games easily is perfect for us. I think this is what sets the console apart for me, more than any hardware feature could ever achieve.

There's no release date set in stone for Toki Tori 2, but Two Tribes is using the extra time well, bringing additional puzzles and features to the game.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how this game turns out. It looks pretty cool so far and it might end up being a solid game on the eshop!

Take the time to make it great! Integrating MiiVerse with level sharing is an awesome idea. I really wish Nintendo would give at least cursory ability to use Miis, as well, so Nintendo Land style group play is more possible.

Loving the eShop right now. I'm impressed with how some devs are just hitting all the controller options and off-screen play. I was surprised how thoughtful the controls were in Trine 2 to take advantage of the strengths of the GamePad or the Wii Remote plus nunchuck.

I agree, I would definitely get this game if I could share levels through Miiverse, rather than having to share them across the PC or something like that. I never did finish Toki Tori 1 though, I really should try but some of those puzzles were just beyond me, I felt bad whenever I had to look up walkthroughs online so hence just never finished it.

I'm not really interested in the game, but I'm considering buying it just to support the dev for publishing on nothing but Steam and eShop. The bigger the numbers, the more support our Little System That Can is going to get!

I'm really excited for release day on this! Toki Tori was so under-appreciated. I even went out of my way to find used copies of the GBC original for my friends & family to try out. Seeing just how much effort is going into the follow-up is a major dose of hype!
