Toki Tori 2 saw a sales boost of 8027% after the recent update

Two Tribes has seen a explosion in Toki Tori sales after the massive update and discount that launched last week.

Last week we told you that Two Tribes, the developers of Toki Tori 2, had a big update on the way for the game. The update is called Toki Tori 2+ and saw release on Steam earlier this year, where it received huge praise from PC gamers. Since then, Two Tribes has taken the time to optimize the update and offer it for free to Wii U owners who have the game, or who might download it in the future.

They recently announced on Twitter that their sales for the game have risen a massive 8027% with this free update, getting a huge sales spike after the update and a discount went live. The trailer above shows some of the changes to the game if you’ve already played it, but if you haven’t now is the perfect opportunity, as the game is on sale for $8.99 until September 19th.

Around the web
  • Shota

    wow , well its a really fun game!

  • Ducked

    This game is to violent for me!

    • Niknique

      Lol!!

  • Marcus Navarro

    Wait…was the sales increase mostly from Steam or in conjunction with the Wii U?

    Edit: Ignore this question. I’m not exactly at 100%

    • lwlshintalwl

      It seems that sales are only for Wii U.

      • Marcus Navarro

        It’s a legitimate question. Please refrain from being sarcastic just this once.

        • Clel

          I don’t think he was being sarcastic, I think he just misunderstood your question to be ‘Wait…are these discounts for Steam or for Wii U?” instead of what you really said.

          • Marcus Navarro

            That could be the case, although I did ask about “sales increase” and not “sales,” but oh well.

      • Marcus Navarro

        Oh damn! Ignore the bit that said anything about sarcasm! XD My bad!

    • Andreas Sunde

      “HOLY… Sales increased 8027% after launching Toki Tori 2+’s update on #WiiU #eShop yesterday!”
      From the tweet linked in the article.

      • Marcus Navarro

        Okay. Yeah, I’m hungover right now after a huge win by a sports team I love.

  • lwlshintalwl

    I wanted to buy this game in Steam, and recently I found out that was on Wii U so I am waiting until I purchase the console

    • Fred

      Wii U Price drop this week!

  • Clel

    Daawww, he’s so cuute <33

  • Marcus Navarro

    Can yo PLEASE keep this failure off of this site? I’ve already had enough of him in real life.

    • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

      Just joking :D

    • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

      You’re the disliker! :P

    • Jon

      LOL, this made my day!

      *Edit*
      I guess someone doesn’t like the fact I don’t like Obama either.

  • Marcus Navarro

    Hmm…so this is what happens when the Wii U doesn’t see a gimped port.

    Hey, AAA industry! TAKE NOTES!

  • John Andalora

    And 8027% of nothing is….what?

    I’m just gonna leave this here…

    http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=Toki+Tori

    Edit. Just so you know, I’m trolling. Hope people realize that.

    • Jon

      you know, there is something obviously wrong with that data when there is 0 for everything or that only includes physical in which there is 0 physical copies of this game because I am pretty sure it is download only. Good job on failing there. The 0 is obviously an error of data because even if a game is complete sh*t, there is going to be at least someone who will buy it if released for sale. I know this because I am at least one person and I bought it. Even more so, you see 0 for the first Toki Tori so if it really sold 0 as this site claims, why the hell would they make Toki Tori 2? You really failed if you honestly believe those numbers.

      Oh, by the way, your downvote doesn’t change the fact that you failed.

      • John Andalora

        I didn’t actually downvote you, believe it or not. Someone else did. Don’t know who. If you want me to downvote your vote to prove I didn’t, I can.

        As for the statement, whether you believe what I say now or not, sometimes I just like stirring up the pot a bit. It’s amazing how mad people get when you post something inflammatory. There’s something to this whole “trolling” thing. I don’t do it often since I don’t want to damage credibility, but in some articles, it’s just fun to see peoples reactions.

        And no, I know the site is retail only and I don’t believe that these numbers reflect the sales of Toki Tori 2 on downloads.

        • Jon

          you honestly thought I got angry about your post? I am simply pointing out that you failed because you the way you were talking, you actually sounded like there were 0 sales for toki tori games. I don’t get why you think making yourself look like an idiot is fun.

          • John Andalora

            Now, when did I say that I thought you got mad? I said I like seeing how mad people get.

    • david jarman

      What that means is they don’t have the sales figures yet.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Doubt sales figures will be updated for another week.

        • david jarman

          True.

      • Jon

        it’s not that they don’t have sales figures, they have the sales figures, but they are just sales figures for a physical copy of the game and seeing how the sales for the game are download only, it will also be 0 on their site since they only release physical sales and not the download sales and Toki Tori is a download only game.

        • david jarman

          Somebody better tell the other John that,lol.

          • John Andalora

            I know. Just doing a little harmless pot stirring with Toki Tori.

          • david jarman

            lol, slow day today? Yeah, I was wondering about that.

    • Marcus Navarro

      You’re an idiot. You really tried to be that guy. I love seeing people who do that fall flat on their faces.
      *golf clap*

    • Zuxs13

      The moment when you realize you posted sales figures of a site that reports Disc based sales, for a game that is DL only.. D’oh!

    • Rick van der Linde

      I’m just gonna leave this here…

      “Global sales (in millions of units) per game”

      Seeing that the website doesn’t support 0.00x, it can still be 0.007 or w/e resulting in 7k downloads, multiply that by 8 and you have some nice downloads.

      • John Andalora

        And I’m gonna leave this here.

        I’m trolling.

        • Donaald

          More like… you’re failing.

          • John Andalora

            I got what I wanted from this: Attention and stirring the pot on a boring article.
            Success for me.

          • Donaald

            Sure… (Y)

        • Rick van der Linde

          You’re trolling and you like seeing people getting mad, youth problems? Grow up.

    • SomeFluffer64

      VGchartz doesn’t count digital sales. Two Tribes even said on Twitter that they aren’t allowed to release specific sales numbers.

    • Guest

      The number must have been like 1000 in order to have this much of a sales increase. After all, the larger the percent is, the lower the original sales must have been.

      8000% of 1000 = 80,000

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Viva Hollandia!!!

    • Shota

      precies

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Haha

        • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

          Vergeet niet dat dit een engelse Site is xD.

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Ik weet tog jonge… Maar er zijn best veel verborgen Nederlanders hier hoor XD

          • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

            Klopt.

      • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

        Jij gaat nog akkoord met hem lol.

        • Tim van Broekhoven

          Ja wat. Dis een Nederlandse game hoor

  • Clel

    Stop.

    • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

      Stop.

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Kabouter Plop

        • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

          Lol ben jij ook Nederlands xD.

          En hoezo Kabouter plop? Jij bent echt raar.

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Hahahaha ik verveelde me. Normaal ben ik niet zo raar hoor ;) Leuk om hier nog een Nederlander tegen te komen btw!

    • Tim van Broekhoven

  • Sydney Ultrasyd

    Let’s hope the next Wii U update will boost Wii U sales by 8027% too :D

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Doubt it. I expect at least an increase in sales, though.

    • Jon

      the price drop and the release of the games from now until Christmas will probably be what boosts the Wii U sales. Though the update will probably help.

    • Emufred

      I don’t think there’s enough people for that to happen

  • thecoolmana777

    I must say that I only knew about the sale when I downloaded it and not the update from my point of view £8 is much more reasonable for this type of game than £13 but thats probably just my personal opinion I don’t like paying much over £10 for an e-shop game :)

  • Nintendofreak

    mother of fucking sales god… that is amazing

  • aldo2410

    That’s how bussines are made, gentlemen.

  • Mario

    WWWWWWHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA!!!!!????????….

  • prettypinkpanacea

    I am considering purchasing this game now. Not only have the publishers discounted the original price, they have also offered full support to the Wii U by providing this update as dlc. That is alot more than I can say about other third-party publishers and games at this point.

  • Saul Rivera

    I was one of them…I had money on the eShop and quickly grabbed it when it went on sale…I enjoyed Toki Tori on Wiiware and been enjoying this one as well

  • Cyberus

    And in that moment the demographic raised from one person to 8027 people

    • Vialtoclef

      I think you mean 80.27 people, as that one person would have been 100% before.

      • Malcolm_Harbatkin

        81.27

        • Vialtoclef

          No, it’s not 8027% MORE, it’s just 8027% OF the original figure.

          • Malcolm_Harbatkin

            Your math checks out, but that’s not what “risen 8027%” means. Just like if they’d said sales had “risen 15%”, that would make the new total 115% of the old one, not 15%.

          • Vialtoclef

            Oh, I see–good example. i got confused from reading comments like “8027% OF nothing is still nothing” before writing that.

    • Jon

      so… are you saying I am the only person to ever buy the game before this?

  • Pokewarrior2000

    8027%? You mean…OVER 8000?!?!?!

  • greengecko007

    This is what happens when things are reasonably priced on the eshop. $15 for a two button indie platformer is too much for myself and obviously many others. $8 however, sounds like a deal. This game shouldn’t have been priced higher than $10 in the first place.

    • hikkerd

      the game is pretty challenging after a certain point. I am enjoying it really much. i bought it for 8.99 but i wouldn’t have minded to buy the 15.00 version

  • beerkin

    This game sucks. what a mess.

  • tomtank91

    so say it sold 400 before the update and then roughly 8000% increase, that means it would now be roughly 32,400 in sales. That’s unbelievable. Does anyone know what the actual sales numbers are?

  • prettypinkpanacea

    Thanks.
