Trine 2: Director’s Cut, exclusively for the Wii U, features the critically acclaimed original Trine 2 game, a number of enhancements and gameplay polish, alongside a new game mode called “Magic Mayhem”, designed exclusively for the Wii U.

Trine 2 is a sidescrolling game of action, puzzles and platforming. You play as one of the Three Heroes who make their way through dangers untold in a fantastical fairytale world. The game features an exciting adventure full of action, including physics-based puzzles using fire, water, gravity and magic; wicked goblins on a quest to ruin the kingdom for good; and a magical environment full of wonder.

For the first time in the series, Trine 2 introduces online cooperative multiplayer support for up to three players, alongside the local multiplayer mode.

The upcoming new expansion campaign, Trine 2: The Goblin Menace, will also be released on the Wii U at launch as a console exclusive.

Trine 2: Director's Cut and Trine 2: The Goblin Menace expansion campaign will be released at the launch of the Wii U. Trine 2 is currently available on Steam for PC/Mac, the Mac App Store, Linux, Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.


Characters

Amadeus the Wizard
Despite his ongoing research for finally learning the Fireball spell, the Wizard's talent is for conjuring peculiar boxes, and occasionally even planks. He can also levitate small inanimate objects.
Amadeus is married to a lady by the name of Margaret. They have three children, all of whom know the Fireball spell.

Pontius the Knight
The Knight is an eager champion of the kingdom, the protector of the common man with a great sense of justice. Armed with his sword, his shield and the powerful Storm Hammer, he's a formidable fighter.
Pontius's great weakness is food. This shows around his waist.

Zoya the Thief
The Thief makes her way up to rooftops and over walls with her trusty grappling hook. Zoya is not so concerned about family or duty, but she is content to be a hero of the Trine, for she loves adventure.
Zoya's love for treasure, however, often leads her astray.

It can't get any more obvious, Wii U has more power than PS360. There, done. Thank you FrozenByte, thanks to your tech demo we can move on.

No need to be pretentious about it. Given what we saw today with the games shown it is pretty understanding to be concerned.

Trine 2 is one of the best looking games on any system. FrozenByte's artists are ridiculously talented.

Shame about their game designers, but hopefully all the changes means they learned something.

Where is this talk of it being a retail release originating from? I don't think they would expect people to pay 50 dollars to play a director's cut of a 15 dollar downloadable title. If they do then they're fucking nuts.

I've been using the shot of the octopus as my wallpaper for months. Not sure how the console versions turned out, but you can certainly make the PC version look like that. No reason the WiiU can't do just as well.

haha, yes. The artstyle is a bit over the top airbrushy. But people love them glitters and colours.

I'd imagine it'll be the same 15 it is on PC.

They're not outright amazing games, but 2 is very solid. The originally isnt really worth playing anymore if you can get 2.

Pretentious? I'm just saying this game is pretty demanding and looks fantastic, so if they say the improved graphics are only possible on Wii U, it must have more power.

The PC version of this game is one of the most gorgeous things to ever have blessed a screen in my house, so if the Wii version can match the image quality then it'll be a very beautiful thing indeed for Wii fans. It's a pretty good game, too.
