The first patch for puzzle platformer Toki Tori 2 will address issues based on player feedback and is currently awaiting approval from Nintendo, Two Tribes announced on its website.
In addition to several bug fixes, the update will also simplify certain puzzles and add additional hints. According to the post, Two Tribes gathered feedback by checking community avenues.
"During the past weeks we read a lot of reviews, checked out our Miiverse communities and read various forums," the post reads. "Based on that info we compiled a list of low-risk issues that were relatively easy to address in a quick first patch."
If approved, the patch "will hopefully be available within a couple of weeks." The update also mentions that a second patch is planned, but will "be more involving" and take...
Platform puzzle game Toki Tori 2 will be available through the Wii U eShop on April 4, developer Two Tribes announced today.
In a post on the company's official website, Two Tribes wrote that due to a crash bug found in post-production the game had to be resubmitted to Nintendo, extending the title's delay. The developer also wanted to prevent the game's release being lost in news coming out of the 2013 Game Developers Conference next week.
"During GDC, all eyes are on that event and the news coming out of it, so we decided to do it the week after," reads the post. "You may have noticed a lot is riding for us on the success of Toki Tori 2, so we hope you do not mind waiting two more weeks!"
Two Tribes also released a new trailer, posted above, featuring gameplay footage.

Puzzle platformer Toki Tori 2 for Wii U is entirely playable on the GamePad and includes new features such as the Tokidex, according to a post from Niels Hooft on the Two Tribes blog.
Unlike other Wii U games, Hooft wrote, Toki Tori 2 does not mirror either screen. It's played either on a TV or the GamePad, with the option to switch between them with the Select button or menu. The setup will allow players to display extra information on the GamePad screen, such as the current scene or discovered songs.
The game's new Tokidex feature acts as an in-game camera a la Pokémon Snap. Players can scan areas and take photos of almost 40 different items and creatures. Those who find everything will be awarded with a special prize.
Toki Tori 2 was delayed from its original December 2012 launch...
Two Tribes co-founder Collin van Ginkel explained in a recent post that puzzle platformer Toki Tori 2 was delayed into 2013 to make improvements and additions to the game's puzzles and overall structure.
Toki Tori 2 was originally scheduled to release in mid-December of last year for Steam and Wii U. Van Ginkel wrote that two days before the game was due to Nintendo, he had a realization.
"Why were we so focused on getting the game out before Christmas?" van Ginkel wrote. "Why in the world would we put so much pressure on ourselves, when we do not have a publisher or investor pushing us?"
According to van Ginkel, before the team could send the game off "and feel good about it," they needed to move into more open puzzle design, improve the game's graphics and test more thoroughly.
Toki Tori developer Two Tribes is looking to bring ports of its existing games to Nintendo's Wii U, according to several tweets from the developer's official feed.
"Now that Toki Tori 2 is in the final stages it's time to look ahead," the studio tweeted. "We're thinking of bringing our cube games EDGE and RUSH to Wii U too."
EDGE, a game in which players maneuver a cube through puzzle environments, and RUSH, a Rubix cube-type puzzler, are both currently available on Steam. EDGE is also currently available for iOS, Android and as a PlayStation Mini, while RUSH is available on WiiWare.
Should RUSH find release on the eShop, Two Tribes hopes to focus gameplay on the GamePad controller.
"For RUSH we may end up making the TV the optional display, instead of the other way around which a...
