Genre-blending puzzle game getting revived for Wii.
Mixing platforming elements into what is essentially a puzzle game, many people didn’t know quite what to think of Toki Tori when it hit the Game Boy Color back in 2001. And, come May, Two Tribes’ quirky little title will be befuddling Wii owners, too. Today, it was announced that the game will be a launch title for WiiWare (Nintendo’s digital distribution outlet for new content), complete with updated graphics and content and, of course, new Wii Remote controls. For more information on Toki Tori, be sure to check out the official press release below:
HARDERWIJK, The Netherlands, April 10th 2008 - Two Tribes, the Dutch game developer behind “Worms: Open Warfare 2“ for Nintendo DS, today announces the imminent release of Toki Tori for Nintendo Wii. The game is to be made available through the upcoming WiiWare downloadable game service.
Toki Tori for Nintendo Wii marks the entry of Two Tribes into the world of home-console games. Based on the critically acclaimed Game Boy Color game, this update improves the original on every front. Sporting a new look, updated content and a completely overhauled Wii Remote control scheme, the game offers players of all ages a classic gaming experience while making the most out of Nintendo's Wii console.
The gameplay in Toki Tori is a blend of two genres. While it looks like a platform game, it's a puzzle game by heart. Players will have to look and plan ahead carefully while using a variety of items, such as the Telewarp, Freeze-o-Matic and InstantRockTM to name but a few.
Toki Tori will be made available through Nintendo's WiiWare service, which is scheduled to launch on the 12th of May in the USA. Availability in Europe and Australia will depend on the roll-out of WiiWare in those territories.
