Toki Tori 2 announced for PC and Mac

Toki Tori has bounced around from platform to platform following its release on Game Boy Color in 2001, hitting WiiWare, PC, Mac, iThings, Android, and Windows Mobile, and coming soon to PlayStation Network. Now, a decade later, creator Two Tribes has announced that it's finally getting a sequel.

Toki Tori 2 will be "a completely new adventure, developed from the ground up for today's players and technology," Two Tribes said in the announcement.

One change coming in with the fresh start is that there will be no weapons or items. Creative director Collin Ginkel explained that, in the original, items lead to certain puzzles which could only be solved with "a unique combination of items to be used in exact orders at the exact positions the designers wanted." With the sequel and without items, he said, puzzles will have more "possibilities."

Toki Tori will initially be released for PC via Steam and Mac in Spring 2012. After that, Two Tribes plans to bring it to "downloadable stores from Apple, Nintendo and more."
