Toki Tori 2 Release Date On WiiU And PC March 2013

WiiU Toki Tori 2 Gameplay Screenshot

Looks very similar to the first game but with HD graphics.

Toki Tori 2 will be released for the WiiU as well as PC this March 2013.

Absolutely no details on the game were released, but the game looks like it will feature similar gameplay to the original and is sure to satisfy fans of the Game Boy Color puzzler, which has since been ported to iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, PC, PSN, Mac, Steam, Mobile.

As such there are surely a lot of people who will be happy to see a sequel to this underrated gem, which was one of the last Game Boy Color games ever released, to widespread critical acclaim.

I remember when I first read the reviews for Toki Tori in EGM Magazine, I always wanted to play the game but never got around to it. It was developed by Two Tribes and published by Capcom (people often mistake it for a first-party Nintendo title known as The Legend of Starfi, another similar title that I was sad to see never got released in the US on it’s original Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance platforms. We did finally get the 5th DS game in 2008 however) and greatly overlooked by a lot of people, although it has gotten a bit more popular ever since the re-releases starting hitting.

Real-World materials used in the graphics. So. Awesome.

Yoshi’s Land gameplay screenshots and trailer video are shown below of an all-new Yoshi platformer in development for the Wii U. The Yoshi’s Land title was leaked before hand, but we aren’t sure of the exact title.

As you can see this game looks absolutely gorgeous with a very cool, unique art-style that drips with pure awesomeness.

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem WiiU Game In Development! Epic Crossover!

Shin Megami Tensei Cross Fire Emblem? HOLY MOTHER!

Shin Megami vs Fire Emblem? EPIC! Shin Megami Tensei Cross Fire Emblem (Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem) is the full title and has been officially announced.

You heard right! Atlus, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems are joining forces to bring the world the FIRST EVER Nintendo full-blown crossover! Nintendo has never done a legit crossover before with a third-party series like this. So this is totally a killer-app of the highest proportion.

Much more information coming soon, in particular at E3 2013. This news came completely out of left field, so this is a huge development and will go a long way towards satisfying hardcore Nintendo fans and fans of hardcore RPGs at the same time. Hopefully it will be in the RPG or Strategy RPG/Tactical RPG genre, but that remains to be seen.
