Frozenbyte Games is Pleased with the Sales of Trine: Enchanted Edition for Wii U


Trine is a pretty big franchise, and it seems it’s doing well on Nintendo’s hardware as well. Finnish developer Frozenbyte has stated they are pleased with the sales of Trine: Enchanted Edition for Wii U. Trine: Enchanted Edition takes the graphics enhancements of the Trine 2 engine but features the original game’s story and characters. Trine 3 was recently announced, so perhaps that game could come to Wii U at some point, or the Nintendo NX. Via: Wii U Daily

Nintendo will Focus on 2015 Releases this year at E3

Baiten Katos

With the news that The Legend of Zelda Wii U has been delayed to 2015 and it will be a no-show at this year’s E3, many are wondering what Nintendo will show at the June expo this year. In a new statement to IGN, Nintendo says they will focus on games for 2015 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

“As Mr. Aonuma announced, The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U is no longer targeted as a 2015 release. Rather than sticking to a specific schedule, the team wants to make this the most complete and the best game it can possibly be. The new launch timing has not yet been determined. Because we’d like to focus on developing the game, we aren’t planning on showing it at this year’s E3, where we will be highlighting games launching in 2015. We will let you know when we’re ready to share more specifics.”

I’m banking that with the Zelda Wii U delay, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem gets fast tracked to this year, but hey… we have no clue what Nintendo has up their sleeves.
