Krome Studios to launch classic platformer’s sequel on Xbox One June 23rd

BRISBANE, QLD, AUSTRALIA, June 11, 2021 / -- You beauty! Krome Studios is proud to announce that their award-winning game, TY the Tasmanian Tiger™ 2: Bush Rescue™ is coming to Xbox One systems, starting June 23, 2021. Return to your favorite Aussie mates with this nostalgic re-mastering of the platformer-genre classic.

Fans of the TY the Tasmanian Tiger series boomeranged back for the popular sequel’s Kickstarter campaign, funding the project in a blazing 8.5 hours. One fan shared, “TY 2 was my introduction to TY and let's just say it's a real beauty mates!.” Another fan enthused, “This is my favorite platformer of all time, I've never been this excited for a game!”

Throw boomerangs, bite, smash and glide your way around the Australian Outback and stop the evil plans of the wicked Boss Cass and help the good folk of the little country town of Burramudgee.

“Taking advantage of the power of modern consoles, we’ve enhanced Southern Rivers and added new gameplay too,” explains Lindsay Parmenter, Studio Director at Krome Studios. “Now you can measure your progress against your friends with achievements and leaderboards.”

New to TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD is a Hardcore Mode, where you only get one life, and the addition of a photo-mode. Thanks to the Kickstarter backers, TY and the Fourbie jeep have heaps of new looks, there are two NEW boomerangs, and a new Bush Rescue Honorary member, too!
