Developer Two Tribes has delayed the Wii U release of Toki Tori 2 to "early in the New Year".

The game was planned for a December 20 release via the Wii U eShop. Despite Two Tribes calling it "the most complete game experience we've developed so far", it also says the game is "just not good enough to be released yet".

Here's Two Tribes' full statement:

"Toki Tori 2 will miss its December 20th Wii U release date. It sucks, and we're sorry to disappoint you, but here's why.

"Toki Tori 2's a personal project for us. It's first game we've made without being tied to a license or publisher, it's something we're putting a lot of love in, and it's something that's just not good enough to be released yet.

"It's also the most complete game experience we've developed so far; the whistle and stomp concept is rather unique, the game world is filled with all kinds of creatures, we've added an interactive storyline and we'll allow you to explore the game's world as you see fit. All these things are in the game right now, but there are so many things that could, no... should be a better that we feel we would do you a disservice to you if we release it in its current form.

"So what now? We are busy making a plan to fix the the game's current weak spots, in all categories ranging from gameplay to graphics to technology. We are not ready to commit to an exact release date at this point, but it will definitely be early in the new year.

"In closing, we'd like to thank everyone for the support we've received this past year. We hope you'll stick with us until the release!

"THANKS!"

Toki Tori 2 is the sequel to the popular platform puzzle game released on WiiWare in 2008. Two Tribes has said it'll be "focusing on Steam (PC/Mac)" versions of the game after the Wii U version's release.
