Toki Tori 2 developer Two Tribes has pushed back its upcoming Wii U, PC and Mac platformer from its scheduled 20th December release to early next year.
"Toki Tori 2's a personal project for us," said Two Tribes on its official site. "It's first game we've made without being tied to a license or publisher, it's something we're putting a lot of love in, and it's something that's just not good enough to be released yet."
The developer went on to explain that its concepts, game world, and interactive storyline were all complete, but the cumulative product was just not up to snuff for Two Tribes. "There are so many things that could, no… should be a better that we feel we would do you a disservice to you if we release it in its current form."
"We are busy making a plan to fix the the game's current weak spots, in all categories ranging from gameplay to graphics to technology," the studio added. It noted the new release date would "definitely be early in the new year."
"We'd like to thank everyone for the support we've received this past year. We hope you'll stick with us until the release!"
