TY the Tasmanian Tiger 4

Krome Studios has announced TY the Tasmanian Tiger 4: Bush Rescue Returns will get a remastered port for Switch next month.

The remastered and upgraded Switch port is launching on September 26th, and preorders are now live on the eShop.

“We’re thrilled to offer this enhanced edition of TY the Tasmanian Tiger 4: Bush Rescue Returns with a load of new features alongside nostalgic gameplay,” CEO of Krome Studios Robert Walsh said. “It’s exciting for us that fans will see another side of TY, as they get fully immersed in his world and experience his signature platforming adventures now on Nintendo Switch.”

Krome Studios audio director George Stamatiadis added, “We made sure to pack in a whopping amount of audio in this enhanced edition for players. The soundtrack nearly doubles the number of tracks alongside re-recorded, re-edited, and upgraded sound effects. Our ambient sounds were completely revamped with new recordings of birdsongs of crows, kookaburras, and other native birds. Unfortunately, the cassowary proved once again to be difficult, so he didn’t make it into the recording studio.”

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
