Finnish game developer Frozenbyte announced that Trine Enchanted Edition will be released on March 12th for the Wii U system in North America for $14.99. The European launch is slightly delayed, but should release shortly.

Trine Enchanted Edition is the origin story for the three unlikely heroes of Trine: Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief. Our heroes must join forces to overcome obstacles and puzzles in a fully interactive physics-based world, battle the undead and their minions, and restore balance to the kingdom!

We’re extremely happy and excited to finally bring the origin story of the Trine series to Wii U. We’ve had a great reception with Trine 2: Director’s Cut ever since the launch of the console,” says CEO of Frozenbyte Lauri Hyvärinen, and adds: “To reward our loyal fans on Wii U, we came up with the Trine Series Fan Discount, a promotion that hopefully makes up for the delays we’ve had with the release!“.

The Trine Series Fan Discount is a permanent price promotion in the Nintendo eShop that gives owners of Trine 2: Director’s Cut 20% off the price of Trine Enchanted Edition and vice versa. The promotion is now active on the North American eShop.
