Two Tribes Games announced that they’re currently developing the sequel to the puzzle video game with platform elements that was originally released by Capcom in September 2001. Toki Tori 2 is in full development and is slated for release in 2012, though we don’t know as of yet in which platforms it will be released.
In case you were unaware of, the game follows a young chick, Toki Tori, and his quest to rescue his younger siblings, still in their eggs. To progress through the game, the player must pick up each egg on a level using a set number of tools, with new tools being introduced as the player progresses through the four worlds.
Two Tribes Games has also announced that Toki Tori 2 will not feature items and weapons. The main reason for this decision is that the team went back to the core concept of Toki Tori, and built a unique experience.
According to Collin van Ginkel, a lot of solutions in Toki Tori were achieved by a unique combination of items to be used in exact orders at the exact positions the designers wanted. The team thinks that this stopped a lot of people from enjoying the later portions of Toki Tori and that’s why they’ve decided that the game world should offer more possibilities and Toki Tori should have less.
