If you’re a fan of the original Ty the Tasmanian Tiger games – this writer has very fond memories of the first title on Gamecube – then you’ll be pleased to know that the second outing, Bush Rescue, is getting a well-deserved HD lick of paint thanks to an extremely successful kickstarter campaign. At the beginning of the year, over $75,000 was raised in just under nine hours which helped make the project a reality. Ty The Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD is slated for a July 2021 release date and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch and other platforms. Krome Studios has released a launch trailer which you can view just below:
Here’s some information about the game form Krome Studio’s kickstarter page:
TY the Tasmanian Tiger™ 2: Bush Rescue™ is the sequel to Krome Studios’ charming Australiana-themed videogame. First released for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and the Xbox in 2004, it features more rangs, more vehicles, more mechs, and more EVERYTHING… in an open world Aussie Adventure.
Rang, bite, smash and glide your way around the Australian Outback and stop the evil machinations of the diabolical Boss Cass and help the good folk of the little country town of Burramudgee.
Compared to TY1, TY2 is big. REALLY big. You can join the Bush Rescue team and help us make TY2HD better; drag it kicking and screaming into the HD era. Your assistance will help us with all the QA testing we’ll need, translation work, bringing the game to all three consoles, and yes, it helps us make all these cool rewards for you collectors and fans, plus awesome stretch goals of new things we’d like to add to the game.
Our goal is to bring TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD to Nintendo Switch™, the PlayStation®4 and the Xbox One by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2021 (before July 1).
