About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2' (GBA/NGC/PS2/Xbox) Goes Gold

by Judy on Oct. 5, 2004 @ 2:07 a.m. PDT

EA and KROME Studios are pleased to share the news of TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue going gold on all platforms (PS 2, Xbox, GC and GBA). This title will ship to North American retail outlets starting on Tuesday, October 12, following in Europe on Friday, October 29 and Australia on Monday, November 8 under a co-publishing deal by EA and KROME Studios.

TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is the sequel to the first TY the Tasmanian Tiger title which sold more than one million units after being released in fall 2003. Similar to its predecessor, TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue provides players with an opportunity to return to the Australian Outback as the boomerang wielding TY the Tasmanian Tiger in this whimsical and engaging character action game for the masses. This new game picks up where the original left off but in a bigger and more entertaining manner as players now have the opportunity to experience and explore "down under" by navigating through the new, wide open 3-D environment by foot and vehicle while interacting with a cast of more than 100+ indigenous characters. Whereas once thought to be extinct, KROME Studios is bringing the Tasmanian Tiger back to life – along with many other extinct and non-extinct animals - in this beloved franchise. Fans can now enjoy more excitement and adventure, with more boomerangs, "Mech units" with special powers and abilities, off-road open world action, and a wide variety of gameplay styles including 2-player multiplayer cart racing.

To help support the upcoming release of TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue, KROME Studios will soon be launching an interactive TY 2 web site where more information and materials will be available. The TY property will also be enriched as it expands into the world of animation as KROME Studios has strategically partnered up with Film Roman, a leading animation company known for the hit shows The Simpsons and King of the Hill, to bring the lovable TY and his world to life for television and DVD.

TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is rated ESRB "E" for Everyone and will be available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and GameBoy Advance. The game was developed by KROME Studios and will be released under the EA GAMES brand.
