Adorable platformer sequel Toki Tori 2 will launch on Wii U, Two Tribes announced today, with Off-TV play and platform-specific features confirmed. What's more, though, they reckon that the Wii U can handle "1080p without breaking a sweat."
As well as being able to play Toki Tori around the house or watching TV via the Gamepad's Off-TV functionality, we'll also be able to take virtual pictures and complete a 'Tokidex' encyclopaedia of colourful critters. On their Twitter account, Two Tribes have confirmed that there'll be no slowdown and it runs in full-on, native 1080p.
So, why do we care about a game running at 1080p "without breaking a sweat"? Basically, because Nintendo's first party titles appear to output at a locked 720p, and it's nice to know that the hardware is capable of providing an acceptable resolution. Many gamers are still worried that Nintendo's new console simply won't stack up in graphical terms, and we can't wait to get to grips with it later this year.
If you can't wait, Toki Tori 2 was recently re-released via the 3DS eShop, joining versions on Steam, iOS and originally the Game Boy Colour.
