Indie video game publisher Modus Games and developer Frozenbyte have signed a deal which will see the former publish Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince on current-gen consoles, including the Nintendo Switch.

Expected next year, Trine 4 will be the latest entry in a series which has shifted 8 million copies to date.

Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte, is confident that the wait between Trine 3 and this new instalment will have been worth it:

Trine 4 is going to be the best in the series. We have rekindled our love for the franchise, heard and seen the fan feedback, and our hearts are set on exceeding those expectations. Trine is back!

The original Trine and Trine 2 both launched on the Wii U, but Trine 3 skipped Nintendo formats. Are you looking forward to playing this new entry on your Switch? Let us know with a comment.
