Two Tribes has announced that they will be releasing the anticipated Toki Tori 2 to the Wii U shop on Dec 20. The company explains on their web site that over the course of a year many things can change including the plans for game releases. Toki Tori 2 was originally set to appear on Steam for PC’s and Mac, until now the company had not specifically addressed why the Wii U is now first.

“Since we’re a relatively small indie studio, a lot is riding on the success of Toki Tori 2 for us. We have spent well over a year with everyone at Two Tribes on this single project, which means Toki Tori 2 will be the only source of income for a while to come. When Nintendo announced their plans for the Wii U, we decided early on that the game needed to be on that platform, but it wasn’t until we noticed that our completion date and the Wii U launch date aligned that we made the call.

Making something for a console launch has several benefits from a development and business standpoint. You don’t have to support a wide range of configurations as you would need to on Steam, meaning we can release earlier after we finish the game. And business-wise, it makes a lot of sense to be available at or around launch, since players are very eager for new things to play on their new devices.”

The Steam version is now slated to release at an unspecified time after the Wii U version premieres.
