Krome Studios has launched a Kickstarter campaign to release the platformer, TY the Tasmanian Tiger, for the Nintendo Switch. The campaign is looking to raise $50,000.

TY the Tasmanian Tiger first launched in Octoober 2002 and was remastered in 2016 for Windows PC via Steam.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game will feature the following:

  • Joycon 6-axis motion control for throwing the rangs, gliding and precision boomeranging!
  • Screen-space ambient occlusion
  • Fully dynamic shadows
  • Color correction and bloom
  • High definition (HD) art textures for the levels and characters
  • Improved particle effects
  • Improved camera
  • New Gamemode called “Hardcore Mode”
  • QA testing and problem fixing 
  • Nintendo Lot Check
  • New TY character skins (a stretch goal feature) 
  • Compatible with both the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite*  (*requires extra controllers to be able to use the TY motion controls.  i.e. throwing and gliding.)

Crikey!! Loved this game on the GC , can't imagine it has aged well though. Vexx was better imo as that eras Mario rival!
