Toki Toki 2+ Is Coming Soon to Playstation 4 Retail in the United States
Toki Toki 2+, previously an indie download only game, is going to have a Playstation 4 retail version in the United States. Check out the full details below, plus my thoughts on the Wii U version of the game.
Toki Toki 2+ will be coming to retail stores for Playstation 4 on June 7th in the United States. A dutch publisher named SOEDESCO is bringing the game to the system. Developer Two Tribes created Toki Tori 2+
Here is how the official press release describes the game:
” In Toki Tori 2+, Five Ancient Frogs, scattered across the countryside, send a telepathic message to our hero. It’s hard to see how this young chicken could help them destroy the floating crystal endangering everything, but Toki Tori is the their only hope.
Toki Tori 2+ may look cute, but it’s a challenging puzzle adventure game. Whistle and stomp are the only moves you need to solve increasingly complex puzzles, as you manipulate strange critters’ behaviour and go anywhere, anytime on a lush forest island.
The game is unique take on the Metroidvania formula: progress by exploring, observing and experimenting. Only by finding the Ancient Frogs and destroying the crystal at the heart of the island will you be able to save your island home from certain destruction. Whistle songs to use special abilities, including rewind and fast travel and numerous other skills. You can also complete your Tokidex by snapping pictures of the island and its inhabitants by using the ingame camera. Only by completing these special side objectives will you be able to get the 15 achievements and collect the 100s of golden wings! ”
Toki Tori 2+ is the “updated version” of the game. I played this game on the Wii U. I thought the graphics were really nice, but the game didn’t give you enough clues to help you out on your adventure and I was mostly lost while playing Toki Tori 2. I was also very disappointed that developer Two Tribes didn’t include the PC version’s map creation mode like they originally promised. If the map creation mode is included with this version, it would be well worth buying. But the official press release says nothing about it, so I doubt it. According to Amazon, the game will cost $19.99! Is the game worth that much (probably without the map creation)? It depends on if you’re a fan of puzzle adventure games and don’t mind them being non-linear…
