Two Tribes To Add Level Editor And Miiverse Support To Toki Tori 2 In Update



Toki Tori 2 for the Wii U will support off-TV play using the Wii U GamePad, but developer, Two Tribes, have more ambitious plans for GamePad features post-launch. If all goes well, these will be added to the game in future updates.


The first feature is to allow the use of the Toki Tori 2 level editor on the Wii U GamePad. Two Tribes’ Niels ‘t Hooft writes on the studio blog: “As you’ll know if you’re on the Steam alpha list, the editor we use to make the game is pretty darn powerful. We’d love you to be able to create your own puzzles, and the Wii U GamePad lends itself to this pretty well.”


The editor—a preliminary version of which can be seen in the trailer above—ties into the second feature that Two Tribes want to implement, which is support for the Miiverse community.


Two Tribes write on the subject: “What if you could create levels with the editor, then share them via MiiVerse and allow others to open them with a single click? What if this could tie in with levels created in the Steam version? All of this might come true!”
