Super Rare Games has announced a new lineup of physical releases on Switch. RIVE, Toki Tori, The Darkside Detective, Earthlock, and Wulverblade will all be offered on cartridges in the future. The Toki Tori physical release bundles both titles together.

Super Rare Games has not yet confirmed release windows at this time. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.


Two Tribes published a launch trailer for the new version of Toki Tori for Switch, out on March 30. Take a look at the video below.

Next Friday, Two Tribes will be publishing the original Toki Tori on Switch. Take a look at some footage below.

A few days ago, a listing for the original Toki Tori popped up on Nintendo’s website. The news about the game coming to Switch was accurate, but the release date first listed was not.

Two Tribes has now sent out an official announcement about Toki Tori Switch, revealing that it’s actually due out on March 30. Nintendo’s website has now updated as well, changing the March 15 release date that had been listed.

Here’s the full announcement:

The first entry in the Toki Tori series is making its way to Switch. Even better, it’s just a few days away.

Nintendo’s North American website lists Toki Tori for March 16. Pricing is set at $4.99. Along with HD Rumble, video capture will be supported.

We have more information about Toki Tori below.

The new version of Toki Tori will be debuting in Europe soon. As revealed through an eShop listing, the 3DS eShop release is slated for November 5. It’ll be pretty cheap – the asking price is only €1.99.


Toki Tori 1 was announced for the 3DS eShop back in March. There hasn’t been a whole lot of news about it since, but the game is still very much in the works. Two Tribes said on Twitter today that the studio hopes to have it done before the end of this year.

Two Tribes has also commented on what we can expect from the 3DS version. It will come with a time rewind feature, more levels, and improved visuals/audio.


Towards the end of 2013, Two Tribes asked if fans would be interested in seeing Toki Tori 1 on 3DS. The studio has posted several hints on its Twitter account about the possibility since then, and it looks like we now have a confirmation that it’s happening.

Based on a Twitter message earlier month, we seem to have solid confirmation that Toki Tori 1 is coming to the 3DS. Two Tribes and Engine Software are teaming up for the release. As it turns out, it’s the first collaboration between the two companies in over twenty years.


Toki Tori 2 was considered to be a good game by those who played it, but unfortunately, that didn’t translate into strong sales. The game’s poor performance ultimately bankrupted one half of the company.

At GDC 2015 last week, Two Tribes co-founder Collin van Ginkel spoke with Eurogamer about what went wrong with Toki Tori 2:

“I don’t think I would have bought Toki Tor 2 if I was a consumer. That doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s a good game. I think we did a really great job. But it’s not something I would have bought myself.”

Van Ginkel added that Two Tribes originally intended to work on Toki Tori 2 on 6-9 months, but ended up developing the title for two years.

Last week, Two Tribes made some comments stating that there would never be another Toki Tori game. The studio explained that Toki Tori 2 simply didn’t generate the kind of sales that they had hoped for.

Two Tribes explained things further on Twitter today, stating that “there is no audience” for Toki Tori 3 and “that won’t change.”
