Trine 2 Has Gone Walkabout Down Under

Posted by Andy Green

Is expected to become available mid-December

Wii U eShop title Trine 2: Director's Cut was available on launch day in North America and Europe, but unfortunately Australian gamers were left disappointed as the game could not be found in the virtual store at all.

The game’s developer, Frozenbyte, has revealed that the reason for the title’s absence is because it didn’t get the game to the Australian Classification Board on time. The developer managed to get the game to the European classification board, PEGI, but it seems that it just missed the deadline in Australia; a shame for gamers Down Under.

Trine 2: Directors cut is now expected to arrive in the Australian Wii U eShop in mid-December and will still have the 20% launch discount attached to it. As we pointed out in our Trine 2: Directors Cut review, we think the game is one of the most visually stunning titles on Wii U and is well worth a look

What are your thoughts, Australia? Were you disappointed by the unavailability of Trine 2 at launch? Let us know in the comments section below.

Downloaded it out of curiosity. I like it, if nothing else it makes you stop at each new screen and say a quiet "wow, that's pretty."
Red tape sucks, sorry 'mates.

Considering how the game has nothing to do with the Australian Aboriginal culture, using the term walkabout is pretty offensive.

I just downloaded it from the UK store like I always do with the 3DS eShop.
No worries.

Ended up paying $16.87 for it if anyone's interested.

This was going to be a launch day purchase. Was totally bummed. But got Nano Assault instead and love it. Will still be getting Trine 2 when it arrives. Love the look and the 3 player co-op will be great for my missus, son and I.
And being an Australian Aborigine I don't find 'walkabout' or 'downunder' offensive in the given context. But if you were to 'walkabout' on my 'downunder', that is slightly offensive and a little painful

Haha, nice one @Taceus
Yeah, was going to purchase this at launch too, so got little inferno instead. Was going to get it from the UK store, but don't want to miss out on my premium rewards...

Trine 2: DC has passed the age ratings system for AUS/NZ today, so as soon as the e-shop ups the game it will be available.
