North American gamers have been able to download and enjoy Frozenbyte’s Trine 2 for a little over a week now, but European PlayStation 3 owners have not been so lucky. The game failed to meet its expected release in Europe despite the game being basically identical to its North American counterpart.
Frozenbyte’s president Joel Kinnunen explained that they submitted both versions at the same time. Both versions have all supported languages included, for example, so there is essentially no difference in terms of content. SCEE currently has no release date set for Trine 2 and Frozenbyte isn’t sure when the game will release.
Kinnunen had this to say regarding the QA gaffe to Eurogamer:
There was probably a holiday pause but things should be back to normal now so hopefully we’ll hear more soon. We are anxiously awaiting the European release ourselves! We had both SCEA and SCEE versions ready at the same time and they are basically 100 per cent the same (SCEA version already has all European languages, for example), so we are very disappointed we couldn’t have a simultaneous launch. But it’s out of our hands.
As soon as we know a European release date for Trine 2 we will be glad to share it.
