‘Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’ Bringing Series Back to its 2.5D Roots With New Trailer

Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya (aka. the wizard, knight, and thief) are back! Or rather, they will be this fall, when Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince arrives, and unlike its precursor, it will be in 2.5D. Their grand quest this time? Something simple, really: retrieve Selius, a prince who has been wreaking havoc on the world with his nightmares (wait, what?).

The Power of Three Goes Portable as Frozenbyte’s ‘Trine’ Trilogy Arrives on Switch

Remember how much fun it was to swap between characters in The Lost Vikings, using their unique abilities to overcome obstacles and/or enemies in that classic platformer? Well, even if you don't, that's quite alright.

A confused wizard, a thieving archer and a brave knight physically bound together by a mysterious, magical object. That's how this particular saga began several years ago in the first game, which was simply amazing. Like its sequel, Trine was puzzle platforming perfection, with several ways to approach each obstacle, and it looks like the third outing aims to raise the stakes even higher! Groovy.

The Wizard, Warrior and Thief Have Arrived On Wii U In ‘Trine 2: Director’s Cut’

Trine 2: Director's Cut
Trine 2 tells the tale of a warrior, a wizard and a thief, as they set out on an adventure filled with magic, mayhem, ugly monsters to slay and puzzles to solve. Instead of controlling all three at once, you’ll be able to switch between them at any time, and along the lines of The Lost Vikings, each has a unique set of abilities. These will be put to the test during both monster bashing and maybe even more so, when a puzzle needs to be solved. It’s been available on PC, Mac, 360 and PS3 for a while now, but the launch of a new console needs at least
