Developer Interview: Frozenbyte Talks Trine 2, Wii U eShop and Working with Nintendo

The excitement for Wii U isn't limited to the second screen, the possibility of five player games or the chance that Nintendo is getting its groove back with third party publishers: there's also the small matter of its approach to digital distribution.

Trine 2: Director's Cut is a promising early Wii U download, created by Finnish outfit Frozenbyte. It's a fantasy-inspired puzzle platformer for up to three players, with a trio of unique characters that must be used interchangeably to navigate the world. Previously released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC / Mac, the Wii U eShop version of Trine 2 is an expanded edition poised to launch alongside the new system. Nintendo Life chatted with Frozenbyte's sales and marketing manager Mikael Haveri about working with Nintendo, Wii U's feature set and just how Trine 2 has been improved for the director's cut.

Sounds very positive! Nintendo has money to burn and flying out indie developers to different shows is a great way to use it. It sounds like Nintendo is supporting the indies this time around. It's almost unbelievable considering their track record. If it turns out to be true, well, that's really exciting.

That's awesome news. The only thing that upsets me is howcome Frozenbyte was able to get the whole local multiplayer or online multiplayer to work but Ubisoft decided against it for Rayman. Well we all know that Rayman was pushed back to Q1 2013, so here's hoping they take the time to add in the option for playing with players online as well. I have no problem playing with friends when they are over, but I don't always want to have to have people sitting next to me.

Fingers crossed we see more of this in the future on the Wii U.

P.S. This game is a day 1 purchase for me too. I am interested to see how much these games are going to cost on the Wii U.
