Trine 2: Director's Cut for Wii U will be the definitive console version of the game, developer Frozenbyte has claimed.
Set to launch this holiday season, Trine 2: Director's Cut features the acclaimed original game with numerous enhancements and gameplay polish, plus a new game mode called "Magic Mayhem" designed exclusively for Wii U.
The upcoming Trine 2 expansion will also be included in the Director's Cut.
"We are thrilled to work on Wii U and bring the best version of Trine 2 to the platform," said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte. "Trine 2: Director's Cut features many things that we had to cut from the original release on other platforms and a completely new user experience tailored especially for Wii U. We are also going to introduce the new "Magic Mayhem" party mode that brings the frantic multiplayer of Trine 2 into a more challenging environment where players can battle and laugh together."
"Simultaneously we are working on the upcoming expansion for Trine 2, which will come out on Wii U at the same time. It will provide a fantastically exhilarating adventure following the heroic trio of Amadeus, Pontius and Zoya – or as otherwise known, the Wizard, the Knight and the Thief. The expansion is our best work yet and absolutely stunning in every respect, and is going to be a fantastic experience on Wii U."
