After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Krome Studios has announced that Ty the Tasmanian Tiger will be coming to Nintendo Switch this March.
Originally released for the Nintendo Gamecube, PlayStation and Xbox way back in October 2002, the charming platformer spawned a number of sequels before vanishing into obscurity.
Now, largely thanks to the power of millennials with loads of nostalgia and expendable income, it’s making a welcome return on modern platforms. This all starts with the Nintendo Switch release on March 31st.

The announcement was made in a Kickstarter blog update from Krome Studios, who also confirmed that PS4 and Xbox One versions will be following shortly after the Switch release. So if you’re hankering for those platforms you might need to hold out a little longer.
An enhanced version of the game arrived on PC with improved visuals and more modern controls a couple of years ago, and fans have been patiently awaiting a modern console release ever since.
Now, it’s finally becoming a reality. I remember getting my hands on the original as a kid and falling in love with it, even if some elements will be considered archaic by today’s standards.
Filled with a bunch of Australian charm in its characters, dialogue and level design, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger will be well worth a revisit or even a first try for many players when it arrives in March.
