Atlus Confirms Trine 2 Release

The sequel to one of the best downloadable games of 2009 is in the works and will be ready for Spring 2011 through digital download (as the first was).

Frozenbyte will again be in charge of developing the game for both PC and the PlayStation Network (the original is meant to arrive on Xbox Live Arcade sooner or later) that will repeat the fantasy setting of the original that allowed players to combine between 3 characters (a knight, a rogue and a wizard) in a pure remembrance of Blizzard's Lost Vikings. Plus, this time around an online 3 player co-op will be available that will surely spice things up. Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales for Atlus, commented:
"The Trine series is a bastion of pure gaming fun. Expanding upon what was considered one of the best cooperative multiplayer experiences in recent memory, Trine 2 introduces online cooperative support for up to three players, dramatically expanding the fun and appeal of the game's spectacularly rich action platforming. In addition, the unique traits and abilities of the three character types in Trine 2 mean more now than ever before, with enhanced skill trees and progression ensuring perfect balance. As a result, the game's new arsenal of thrilling physics-based puzzles delivers just as much challenge and satisfaction for a sole player as for three friends playing together."
Always good to see an original title get past the mainstream titles. If you haven't tried it yet, you might give it a try!
