Modus Games has shared a new video for Frozenbyte's upcoming Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, giving us a look at some lovely looking gameplay and exploring the developer's journey while making the game.
Trine 4 will feature an all-new story that reunites Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya, returning to its traditional 2.5D aesthetic with the puzzle-platforming gameplay players enjoyed in the first two Trine games. There are new environments, new physics-based puzzles, and even a brand new four-player co-op option. Here's a look at some key features:
- Gorgeous, 2.5D landscapes. Explore uniquely designed levels in beautiful, 2.5 dimensions, from breathtaking ruins and haunted tombs to tranquil birch groves and blueberry forests.
- Local and online multiplayer. Play with up to 4 players online or in local co-op.
- Captivating storytelling. Follow the story of a haunted prince as you journey through magical fairytale landscapes inhabited by friendly creatures, as well as a host of nightmarish foes.
- Dynamic puzzle-solving. Solve puzzles - solo or with friends - that feature fire, air, light, magnets, electricity and more, with challenges tailored to the number of players.
- Abundant skill trees. Unlock diverse abilities and amazing new skills.
- Completely revamped combat system. Experience the heroes' own bloodcurdling nightmares in boss fights featuring an enriched combat system with fresh challenges and thrilling action!
- Enchanting soundtrack. Enjoy a wondrous soundtrack with songs that bring life to each new environment.
It would appear that the Trine: Ultimate Collection release - which sees all four Trine games bundled together - sadly isn't coming to Switch, although a 'Series 1 - 3' physical release was revealed earlier this year. We've got some additional screenshots for you below, but it's worth noting that these aren't Switch-specific.
Trine 4 is scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch "this fall"; it was previously revealed that pricing would be set at £29.99 / €34.99.
