Trine 2: Director's Cut Will Include Exclusive Content, and Looks Gorgeous

An early download beauty

As part of yesterday's Wii U announcements, you no doubt spotted a brief cameo for Trine 2: Director's Cut. In the European broadcast Satoru Shibata — Nintendo of Europe's President — highlighted it first as part of a Wii U eShop segment, confirming that the new system's version will include exclusive content.

This title has been available for a while on Xbox 360, PS3 and the Steam platform on PC, and the Wii U version will include the previously released DLC expansion, The Goblin Menace. The Director's Cut will also have the new Magic Mayhem mode, which like the campaign supports up to three players in either local or online multiplayer. Below is a short trailer that Nintendo's released which is taken from the preview show; this is apparently an all-new level exclusive to Wii U, and shows that this is an early contender to be one of the best looking launch-period games on the system.
