Ty The Tasmanian Tiger HD Now Available On Nintendo Switch (VIDEO)
While not quite reaching the longevity of Crash Bandicoot or Banjo-Kazooie, the Australia-themed title Ty the Tasmanian Tiger managed to gain a sizeable following back in 2002. The Krome Studios-developed release saw several sequels starring the boomeranged hero, but the series ultimately never made it to modern-gen consoles. However, over the past few years, it appears Krome is on a mission to remedy that fact as a remastered version of the original Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is now available for Nintendo Switch.
As per the game’s Switch listing, the new Ty HD remaster features the game’s original 17 levels set in the Australian Outback as well as 13 different boomerangs for players to utilize during their adventure. Several improvements are also sprinkled throughout the game such as updated visuals, an increased 60fps, as well as an Audio Director’s cut and a new Hardcore Mode for the more skilled players among us. Check out the port’s gameplay trailer below alongside an official description.

This isn’t the first inkling of the classic platformer’s return as Ty the Tasmanian Tiger had previously released on Steam on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign. This past week finally saw the promise of more platforms fulfilled with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions also confirmed to be on the way. These particular ports are teased to have full Achievement/Trophy support as well as the ability to play in 4K resolution. Neither versions currently have a release date but are assured to have more news soon now that the Switch version is out in the wild.
