Two Tribes Confirms That RIVE is Definitely Coming to Wii U

Let there be no doubt

During the summer period Two Tribes, the studio best known for its Toki Tori titles that also restructured and started again earlier in the year, announced its new 2D shooter — RIVE. At the time Two Tribes told us that it was "gunning" for Wii U development, and the studio has now confirmed on Twitter and to us at EGX in...

Currently earning more from the eShop than "any other digital shop"

Just recently Two Tribes lifted the lid on its shooter, RIVE, which it had been teasing for a number of months. It was a welcome landmark for a company that's endured a difficult year, with co-founders Collin van Ginkel and Martijn Reuvers shutting down the development company and...

Swords & Soldiers (Wii U eShop)

The battle returns

Originally released exclusively on WiiWare in 2009, Swords & Soldiers has had its fair share of ports in the five years since its initial release; it's made an appearance on almost every platform under the sun. The last of these to grace a Nintendo platform, the 3DS version, was not exactly a shining example of what one would...

Swords & Soldiers HD

The best of both worlds

The WiiWare platform may not always be considered in a particularly glowing light, but it's undeniable that it did deliver some top-class download experiences. One of these was Swords & Soldiers from Ronimo Games, a side-scrolling real-time strategy title that made use of the Wii Remote pointer in an intuitive, natural...

Two Tribes Highlights Sales Increase Following Permanent Discounts on Classics Range

EDGE on 3DS enjoys the biggest boost

One of the most significant issues with both the Wii and DSi online stores were the fixed price points, locking game publishers into their launch rate. As we've seen on the 3DS and Wii U eShop stores, however, Nintendo's decision to drop that requirement has brought us regular promotions and discounts on a...

Two Tribes Shoots Down the Possibility of Toki Tori 3

"There is no audience for" a sequel to the Wii U title

In a series of tweets today, Dutch studio Two Tribes has indicated that poor sales of Toki Tori 2+ means there's no chance of another sequel. The cute puzzle-platformer struggled to find a fanbase when it released on the Wii U eShop and PC last year, a situation the company doesn't feel will...

Two Tribes Publishing B.V. remains unaffected

Two Tribes, the development studio best-known for games such as Toki Tori and Toki Tori 2+, has entered bankruptcy, with the original owners Martijn Reuvers and Collin van Ginkel now forming a new, smaller company. Two Tribes as a development studio was a separate business from Two Tribes Publishing...

Review: EDGE (3DS eShop)

EDGE (3DS eShop)

A different side of the same cube

We are already big fans of EDGE on the Wii U eShop, a release in which it was one-third of the Two Tribes Classics trilogy. Its arrival on the 3DS is as a solo flyer, and perhaps on a screen size that'll be more familiar to veterans of the mobigame title that Two Tribes has so effectively promoted to gamers of all...

EDGE (Wii U eShop)

Simple but multi-sided

Two Tribes, in bringing its Classics series to the Wii U eShop, is among the first to deliver inexpensive experiences — especially with launch promotional prices — that have primarily made their home on other platforms for a good period of time. The updated edition of Toki Tori is based on its PC brethren, while now we...

Toki Tori and EDGE (Two Tribes Classics)

Budget brilliance?

After announcing their existence earlier in the year, Two Tribes recently lifted the lid on its Classics range coming to the Wii U eShop, three games that come to Nintendo's latest system in shiny optimised HD forms. It's possible that they'll all be familiar to gamers in some form or other, with each having appeared on a mix of...

Two Tribes Teases New Title While Describing Toki Tori 2+ Level Editor as "In The Fridge"

Announcements made on Miiverse

One feature that never made it to Toki Tori 2 on the Wii U eShop, even in its + update, is the level editor. Although shown in a crude form at press events as far back as August 2012, it's never made it into the final cut on Nintendo's platform. Unfortunately it looks like the feature isn't coming anytime soon, as the...

There's some serious value on offer

It's been no secret that Two Tribes, which has recently seen a surge in Wii U eShop sales with the excellent Toki Tori 2+, has been planning a Classics range for the Wii U eShop, including titles familiar to Nintendo gamers and a couple that will be new to some. The details have been revealed today and, it has to...

Hands On: Toki Tori 2+

Toki Tori 2+

Potential fulfilled

Toki Tori 2 was a bold, ambitious game in its design, and delivered on many fronts. Its deliberately hands-off approach, combined with occasionally ambiguous objectives and awkward backtracking counted against it in the eyes of some — certainly not all — gamers. In our review we awarded 7/10, concluding that a high degree...

Two Tribes Clarifies Toki Tori 2+ Details and Confirms Classics Coming to Wii U

A great idea fully hatched?

Toki Tori 2 was always high on a number of Wii U eShop wishlists when it was announced prior to the Wii U's launch. Toki Tori was an early standout on WiiWare, yet developer Two Tribes didn't simply repeat the formula with the sequel, instead opting for a bold approach where puzzles were simply part of a larger world,...

"We're already working on them behind the scenes"

Two Tribes has been a busy studio in recent times, bringing Toki Tori 2 to the Wii U eShop, a '+' version to Steam on PC, and has also confirmed to us on multiple occasions that updates to the Wii U version will add features such as the level creation tool. While that's plenty to deal with, the...
