New details have been revealed about the specific features to be found within the Wii U version of the indie eShop game, Toki Tori 2. Along with a PC/Mac release for the game, Toki Tori 2 is a puzzle game made by the indie studio Two Tribes. If you are curious about what the game is about or how it might play, check out my impressions here.
As you might expect, the game will fully support off-tv play on the Wii U’s gamepad alone. So anyone wanting to completely play the game on their TV or on the gamepad alone. This can become useful if the main TV is needed for something else or if the main TV is not present at the moment. The ability to play games without the TV as truly become a wonderful feature for the Wii U and I am glad to see this game join the ranks of the ever glowing list of off-tv enabled games.
The game will also feature something called the “Tokidex Camera.” Kinda similar to the old game Pokemon Snap, this feature will allow you to look and scan around yourself for other creatures and take pictures of them. Once a picture is taken, that creature and its information will be added to the Tokidex. This seems like a fun little addition to the game. The game will also feature Miiverse interactions as well as a future support for a level editor post release. So while we won’t be able to make and share our own levels at launch, it does appear like we will be able to do so at a later date and time.
