Crickey mates! Throw some prawn on the barbie and come on down to the Outback, another Ty the Tasmanian Tiger game is in the works!
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger was just one of many in the large stable of PS2-era 3D platformers… and the bane of editors everywhere for it’s alliteration. Ty 3: Night of the Quinkan was the last in the series, released way back in 2005 for the PS2 and Xbox. Now, more than an entire console generation later, the franchise is coming back with Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 4. And it’s set to be released exclusively for the PC (via Steam… sorry console owners. In addition to moving platforms, the new game will shift planes and take place entirely in 2D… sorry 3D platformer fans.
Perhaps the weirdest bit of news, besides the fact that this fourth game exists at all, is that it’s coming out in only a few weeks on September 18. It’s rare for a game to be formally announced this close to its release date, but we’re going to have to give Krome Studios the benefit of the doubt.
If Ty 4 is a success, Krome hopes to bring the three earlier entries in the series to Steam as well. Hopefully, fans of the franchise can make that happen. But first, I’m going to go ahead and write a few million apology notes to everyone in Australia.
