The folks at Modus Games have today shared a brand new trailer for the upcoming Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, which will be launching on Nintendo Switch on 8th October.

As you can see for yourself, the trailer gives us a good look at the plot taking place behind the usual, enchanting puzzles we've seen in previous gameplay videos. Despite the world's gorgeous, fantastical setting, things sure get pretty dark in places, as explained in this official description below:

Prince Selius suffers from intensely dark dreams and, due to his magical talents, monstrous nightmares are able to slip into reality and wreak havoc on the waking world. Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya must find the afflicted prince and resolve the desperate situation before the world is engulfed by the Nightmare Prince's shadows.

Trine 4 is set to feature overhauled combat and an expansive set of skill trees, all in a bid to help players get truly invested into the action as their preferred hero. The game’s puzzles change based on how many players are in a group to make sure exploration works nicely however you want to play.

As a reminder, Trine 4 is releasing alongside Trine: Ultimate Collection, which bundles all previous games together in one tasty package.
