A smaller chance of getting stuck in a "loop of hell"
We're big fans of RIVE: Ultimate Edition on the Nintendo Switch, the explosive final hurrah from Two Tribes. It's full of intense 60fps action that looks great on the system, and we didn't hold back on the praise in our review. Two Tribes has been working away on an update and has now...
Bang for your buck
Two Tribes is a name that will be familiar to many a Nintendo fan after the excellent Toki Tori series, a puzzle platformer with some very light Metroidvania elements. Since producing those games, the company fell on some hard times and stated that RIVE would be its final game. The title was announced back in 2014 for the Wii...
Launch discount from old [email protected] promo also confirmed
Two Tribes has been a familiar name among Nintendo download fans, well known for its Toki Tori mascot and for publishing some excellent titles on 3DS and Wii U, in particular. There were tougher times, however, and sadness when the company co-founders Collin van Ginkel and Martijn...
It really will be the "ultimate" edition of the game
Two Tribes has confirmed that its manic shooter RIVE is coming to the Switch eShop on November 17th, and it will be the best version of the game yet. For starters, it will offer a new Copilot Mode so you can play with a friend. This is a exclusive mode for the Switch version that allows two...
"It was never intended as a portable game, but it's a perfect fit"
We've been fans of Two Tribes' swansong release, RIVE, since it arrived on PC and other consoles. The downside is that it's had a long road to Nintendo hardware, with technical challenges and a shrinking market ending the Wii U version, and since that point we've had a wait for the...
"We've always held the Nintendo aesthetic in high regard"
RIVE has proven to be an interesting project - it's a truly challenging and smart twin-stick shooter that is a swansong for Two Tribes. The studio brought us some excellent titles over a number of years, but decided that it would make one final game before moving on to new things...
"RIVE is a great fit for Nintendo Switch"
RIVE is the last game by Two Tribes, with the founders of the company that brought us the Toki Tori franchise signing off with a full-on and explosive 2D shooter. As a nod to ideals of old-school difficulties and game styles it's an excellent title, but sadly its Wii U eShop version looked doomed and is now...
"A better RIVE is preferable to an early sub-par RIVE"
In the steadily decreasing list of enticing titles still coming to the Wii U and its eShop, RIVE was among the most anticipated in the download scene. The final game from Two Tribes, it made a favourable impression as one of the demos in the E3 2015 '[email protected]' promotion, and we rather...
Will still support partners following release
RIVE is a hugely promising title from Two Tribes, a fast-paced action shooter that gave us a new appreciation for being blasted to bits following an extended hands on last year. Coming to Wii U, PS4, Xbox One and PC it's now confirmed for a September release; the surprising addition to this news,...
Two Tribes isn't cute and cuddly any more
Two Tribes, prior to its closure and restructuring in early 2014, had a broad range of games and genres both developed in-house and as part of its publishing arm. Toki Tori was the best known of its titles, a cute - albeit tricky - puzzler that branched out across consoles and smart devices. The company's...
"There's fun in failure"
Two Tribes' upcoming Wii U eShop shooter RIVE has been on our radar since it was first announced, and the studio has now released another trailer which celebrates that thing we all try to avoid: failure. The new footage - shown below - was, according to Two Tribes' Collin van Ginkel, inspired by observing players at gaming...
Two Tribes gets less cerebral
Earlier this year Two Tribes endured a restructuring process and re-formed its development company, in the process shrinking the team down to three, still including original founders Collin van Ginkel and Martijn Reuvers. Previously associated with the Toki Tori brand and its publishing business, the struggles of Toki...
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...
