'Trine 2: Director's Cut' adds new modes and expansion content for Wii U

Trine 2's journey to the Wii U includes the addition of "Magic Mayhem" mode and the "Goblin Menace" expansion.

Trine 2: Director's Cut was hidden in a big group of surprise Wii U games at Nintendo's E3 press conference, but that doesn't mean you should ignore it. This well-received action platformer from developer Frozenbyte was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC late last year, but the upcoming Wii U version has some major additions.

In addition to tons of minor fixes and tweaks, Trine 2: Director's Cut will have an all-new unlockable level and revised controls taking advantage of the Wii U GamePad. A Wii-exclusive mode called "Magic Mayhem" will allow up to four players to join in for online or offline multiplayer, though details on how this mode actually plays are still missing as of yet.

If the tweaked original game and the "Magic Mayhem" mode are not enough, Trine 2: Director's Cut will also include the upcoming "The Goblin Menace" expansion. This new campaign will be released as downloadable content for the PC version of Trine 2 but will not be available on other console versions.
