Trine 2 Wii U update available in Europe

Trine 2 Wii U update is now available for download in Europe.

Puzzle

The update for Trine 2 that Frozenbyte has been promising has finally arrived… in Europe. This update offers improved graphics, voice chat for on-line multiplayer, Wii U Pro Controller support and German voice acting. To download the update simply start Trine 2 and you will be prompted to begin the download and installation process.

As of right now, there is still no news on the update for North American Wii U owners. We recently reported that Frozenbyte hoped for the update to be available in North America during the fourth week in January, along with the release of the Australian and New Zealand versions of the game. While the Wii U Pro Controller support and improved graphics are nice touches, the voice chat for on-line multiplayer is a must-have for this kind of game where players must work together to solve puzzles.

[Editor's Note: Joel from Frozenbyte has taken the time to give us the full update schedule in the comments below. I've reproduced it here for easy access.]

Hey guys, Joel from developer Frozenbyte here. We’re having some trouble sending out a PR about this so I’ll post the important bits here:

- Update released in Europe
- Australia & New Zealand release date set to January 31 (Thursday)
- Australia & New Zealand launch discount and other details to be announced next week
- North America coming soon – not sure when exactly but hopefully won’t take too long

Sorry about the delays! I hope knowing this helps a bit in any case, and you (continue to) enjoy the game. :)

Best,
Joel

      Still not in the Australian store as of 12:47pm Thursday ( Sad face ) What will I do tonight ?

      • JoelFB

         Sorry! We probably should’ve said Jan 1 – it’s tied to the European eShop update which happens in a few hours. So the time should be roughly 1 AM in Australia (AEST I think).

    I love this game!  I’m particularly enjoying the variety of puzzles.  My wife likes listening to the French dub when I play, though she thinks the narrator speaks too slowly.

    Can’t wait for Pro controller support.  I guess voice chat will be nice since then my brother and I won’t need skype open while we play together.

    Preffered to play it alone, so I could solve everything myself. I played Heroes of Ruin on 3DS online and felt that others were taking away from the experience I wanted. No reason for me to get this update really.

    So now that it’s done in Europe, I’ve been wondering, does the voice chat use the gamepad mic and speakers or do I need to go buy a headset?

    What a frustrating wait. I planned on buying Trine 2 at launch in November and have been waiting ever since. Nice to finally have a release date.

    • RyuNoHadouken
