Toki Tori 2+

Earlier this week Martijn Reuvers of Two Tribes took to Miiverse to confirm the developer had been forced to put the level editor for Toki Tori 2+ "in the fridge" due to other commitments.

Sadly, it appears Wii U owners won't get the opportunity to play around with the feature as the studio has now stated its development has officially been cancelled.

Writing on the Two Tribes blog, Reuvers said:

Ok let me start off with an apology to everyone that is eagerly expecting the Toki Tori 2+ Wii U level editor: we’re breaking a promise as we decided to put the editor on hold and shift our attention to something new.

He said the biggest reason for the cancellation was that Toki Tori 2+ didn’t sell as well as the studio had hoped it would and integrating a sharable level editor is not something that is easy to do.

In the end, Two Tribes felt the big update was not worth the additional investment as it will only appeal to a small percentage of the people who own the game. After weighing up all the options, the developer decided to focus on a new project.

However, the studio has devised a compromise for Wii U owners eager to play with the level editor. As the Steam version of Toki Tori 2+ has the feature, Two Tribes has said it will give that version away for free to those who already own the Wii U iteration.

In order to take part in the promotion you need to head over to the following Miiverse posts, depending on what region you live in.

European Wii U owners should go here, while US players should head here.

Once you've arrived at the post you need to reply to it with no personal information and e-mail the folks at Two Tribes on [email protected] with your Steam name and a link to your Miiverse post. You'll need a tickbox next to your name, indicating that you own the Wii U version, and once verified you shall be sent a free Steam version of Toki Tori 2+ to your e-mail address.

We hope this way we can make up a little bit for not releasing the editor on the Wii U.
