Press release:


E3 2010: COOPERATIVE PHYSICS-BASED ACTION PLATFORMING GOES ONLINE: ATLUS AND FROZENBYTE ANNOUNCE TRINE 2TM FOR DIGITAL RELEASE IN SPRING 2011


Trine to complete this adventure is more fun if a couple of your friends are trine, too.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 17, 2010 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc., in collaboration with Frozenbyte, today announced Trine 2TM, a high-fantasy, physics-based action platformer with cooperative online multiplayer. The sequel to GameSpot.com's Best Downloadable Game of E3 2009, Trine 2 takes the first game's beloved triad-the powerful knight, the swift rogue, and the crafty wizard-and puts them into an all-new adventure filled with more action, more puzzles, and the introduction of online support for the series's popular cooperative 3-person gameplay.

"The Trine series is a bastion of pure gaming fun," stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales for Atlus, "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."

Boasting sumptuous visuals, a masterful musical score, and clever physics-based gameplay, Trine 2 is the perfect mix of old-school platforming action, original physics-based level design, and cooperative multiplayer fun!

God I got excited like a kid on this trailer. Among all the monster games shown @ this E3, this little jewel shines.

Such an fantastic looking game.

I love the artstyle as well, just great stuff.

I will try and get my hands on the first one :)

I only played the demo of the first, and while I liked the game mechanics and style, I felt that if the story was nothing more than a little intro to get you started the game wasn't worth the time. Don't get me wrong, I really like the story-telling atmosphere, but I was told the story didn't really progress beyond a little background and was no reason to play the game.

This sequel promises a little "improved" style with similar game mechanics, but it's the co-op that might actually convince me that a backstory isn't needed to have fun with this little title.

Or is there a little more to the story than I've been told?

That surprised me! What a great-looking game! Love the swapping of characters to pop off the archers. Nice touch!

God,now I just wish Capcom would bring out a new Ghost'n Goblins game with this look,and Konami would follow with a new Castlevania.

This would make me very very happy for the years to come !

I remember the first time I laid eyes on Uncharted. Amazing artwork.

Brilliant! Reminds me of the good ol' days of the first Oddworld games :)

I hope gaming has a sort of renaissance and these kinds of games make a return. I'm getting bored with first person games.

Yep
Trine, Shadow Complex, Bionic Commando Rearmed... I've had more fun with those than most "GIGANTOR BUDGET!" games.

Where's a new Turrican when you need it?
