Two Tribes Bringing RIVE To Wii U

Two Tribes has been responsible for some real gems on the Wii U eShop despite having to go through a recent restructuring of the company. Their many hits includes greats such as the Toki Tori series, Edge and Rush. The company has a firm handle on Nintendo hardware which shines through in their excellent work on the Wii U.  Happily, Two Tribes has recently revealed that their latest game known as RIVE will be coming to the Wii U in 2015.

RIVE is a futuristic side-scrolling action platformer which looks similar to classics such as the Contra series. The game is running on a modified version of the Toki Tori 2+ engine which bodes well for the game considering how well the engine was optimized for Nintendo's HD console. Interestingly, RIVE is being developed internally by Two Tribes for the Wii U alongside the PC version while the PS4 & XBOne versions are being farmed out to other developers. This is interesting considering that the traditional third parties normally do the opposite and shows that indie developers really do respect the Nintendo fans by taking their work seriously. Enjoy!
