Una de las primeras joyas en recibir la Wii U gracias a la comunidad indie fue Trine 2, un juego que sin llegar con aires de presunción ha logrado ganarse el aprecio de los dueños de la Wii U. Es por ello que hoy los muchachos de FrozenByte han anunciado el lanzamiento de Trine: Enchanted Edition, la reedición del primer juego usando el excelente motor de la segunda entrega. Aunque llegará en primera medida a los usuarios de PC, ya los desarrolladores han prometido que el juego llegará a la Wii U en el Otoño de este año.
A continuación les dejo el trailer de anuncio, junto con el comunicado de prensa, el cual explica mas detalladamente todo lo que encontraremos en este remake:
Trine Enchanted with a New Edition – PC release on July 24th
Consoles will follow during fall 2014
Helsinki, Finland – 24 July 2014 – Finnish game developer Frozenbyte is excited to announce that Trine Enchanted Edition for PC will be released July 24th, 2014 on Steam, GOG.com and Humble Store, and will be priced at $14.99.
Trine Enchanted Edition is a new version of the original Trine, remade using the Trine 2 engine. The PC release of the Enchanted Edition will be a free update to existing Trine owners, and the original Trine will remain playable as well.
The updated version has been enhanced with dazzling new visual effects and includes a number of improvements over the original, most notably online multiplayer and mid-level saving. A new trailer has been created to celebrate the Steam launch, accessible on the YouTube™ video community:
"We've sold over 6 million copies of the Trine series so far, and we just passed the five year anniversary mark of the original Trine's release" says Frozenbyte CEO Mr. Lauri Hyvärinen. "So we wanted to give something back to our fans with this update by improving the game, and finally bringing it to Linux as well. We've also heard a lot of requests for Trine from console owners, so we're happy to announce that we’re bringing Trine Enchanted Edition also to Wii U and PS4."
Set for a July 24th release for Windows PC's, followed by Mac and Linux releases, Trine Enchanted Edition is also coming later in 2014 as a digital release for the Wii U system from Nintendo, and for the PlayStation 4 system.
Trine Enchanted Edition is a beautiful fantasy action platformer with a fairytale-like atmosphere, following the journey of three heroes – a Wizard, a Knight and a Thief – in a quest to save the kingdom from evil.
