The North American Nintendo Direct presentation today revealed that the Wii U eShop title Toki Tori 2 would be coming out in North America in March and now we have Two Tribes coming out on Twitter saying that the game will release in Europe on the same exact day. They also bring out that the exact release date for the game will be revealed “in the coming weeks.”
When asked about whether or not their would be a demo for Toki Tori 2 on the Wii U eShop Two Tribes stated that there is “no time for a demo.” Instead of working on a demo they want to get the game into your hands as quickly as possible. Maybe down the road they will release one, but right now there isn’t one.
Two Tribes has made a new blog post about Toki Tori 2 and it goes over the features of the Wii U version of the game. Two Tribes brings out that the Off-TV Play won’t have a mirror of gameplay on both screens and this allows for extra info to be displayed on the GamePad screen when you are playing on the TV. The GamePad will show where Toki Tori 2 is and all the songs you have found.
The Tokidex feature will allow you to use the GamePad screen to take pictures of creatures and objects around Toki Tori so they can be added to the Tokidex. There will be about 40 different pictures for you to take and gathering them all unlocks something.
Two Tribes has revealed that the Level Editor will not be available at the launch of the game. Plus, they also want to use Miiverse in some way. They bring out the idea of creating levels and being able to share them on Miiverse so people can just click on them and play.

The Wii U eShop title Toki Tori 2 supports Off-TV play so you can experience the whole game on strictly just the Wii U GamePad screen. Two Tribes is working on an image that can be displayed on the TV when gameplay switches from the TV to the GamePad. What do you think of it? Is it cute enough?
Two Tribes has added a new blog post going over why they decided to delay Toki Tori 2. Two Tribes talks about how they don’t have any publisher or investor pushing them to release the game so they decided to delay the game so they could make it better. They have been working on things like the open level design structure, performance, and updating the graphics of the game. Before the delay the game was running at 30 FPS but now they have managed to bring it up to 60 FPS. The above GIF shows you how the graphics have changed in a certain spot since the delay.
Aussie-Gamer interviewed Colin van Ginkel of Two Tribes and here is what Ginkel had to say about the possible level editor in Toki Tori 2:
“The level editor is still in a proof of concept phase at the moment… We’re aiming to make everything that’s possible for our designers also available for the players out there. It’s going to be a challenge, but it is something we want to get right”
And here is what Ginkel had to say about Miiverse capabilities being added into the game:
“We are currently researching Miiverse. It was supposed to come in an update, but since we’ve delayed the game from the (original) launch, we’re now looking into it again for the initial release”.
