Back in August 2019, Krome Studios ran a Kickstarter campaign to bring the original 2002 GameCube/PS2 game Ty the Tasmanian Tiger to modern platforms, starting with the Nintendo Switch. Now, in the most recent Backer Update, the studio revealed that the game is in the last stages of Lotcheck testing.

As the post is exclusive to backers, we have to rely on Gradon’s post on Resetera for now, where a March 31st release date is listed. This lines up with the Kickstarter itself stating that March 2020 would be the expected timeframe for backers to receive their tier rewards, including codes for the game. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will come “ASAP” after the Switch version, and the Xbox One port will come “after that.”

Check out a video of the game running on Switch below:
 

 
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is a 3D platformer in the vein of classic collectathons, with a bunch of different tasks to perform per level, from completing platforming challenges to freeing little critters. It received somewhat middling reviews at the time, but has grown a fanbase in the years since.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
