Toki Tori 2+ on PlayStation 4 is Adding Telepathic Frogs to Ease the Difficulty
Toki Tori 2+ has always been deceptively difficult. The game — which features a cartoony, almost Angry Birds-esque art style — is a non-verbal puzzle adventure that tasks the protagonist bird to clear up a mysterious pollution using a limited series of movements (move, stomp, and whistle) and angry frogs.
According to a recent blog post on PlayStation blog, the fact that the story was not given at all and the game could be difficult without understanding it was a sticking point with many players and critics. To combat the confusion, the newest release of Toki Tori 2+ will feature some writing with telepathic frogs:
The ancient frogs were always essential to the game’s second half, but now they communicate with Toki Tori from the start. They do this collectively, telepathically, and a tad Yoda-like (making the game semi-verbal instead of non-verbal). Grumbling and begrudgingly, the frogs give you details of your quest via thought bubbles.
Toki Tori 2+ is already available on PC and Wii U — although it is unclear whether the telepathic frog updates will be making their way there. The game will release on PlayStation 4 on February 23, 2016.
