Developer Frozenbyte has just revealed the very first trailer for the latest addition to its puzzle/platformer series Trine. Titled Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, this installment is scheduled to launch this autumn on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

The game was first officially announced way back in October 2018, but there weren’t many details available at the time. Now though, Frozenbyte has confirmed that it is going to reunite the series' familiar faces - including Amadeus, Zoya, Pontius - for some platform puzzling that traces back to the root of the series. That means Trine 4 is going to once again be in 2.5D similar to the first and second games instead of going full 3D like Trine 3 did.

The story of Trine 4 revolves around Prince Selius, whose dark nightmares are slipping into the real world and wreaking havoc to it. Against this, the Astral Academy has had to seek help from our three heroes. The game promises to bring more physics-based puzzles (which players can solo or with some friends), new unlockable skills, a "completely revamped" combat system, and an unprecedented number of "epic boss fights.” But enough ranting, let’s check out the actual trailer:

Additionally, the developer also announced Trine: Ultimate Collection, which will launch alongside the upcoming game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This collection is going to be available both digitally and physically, and will include all titles of the Trine series including the latest game, Trine: Enchanted Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story, and Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power.

Unfortunately, there's no word on whether this Ultimate Collection will come to Nintendo Switch. In an earlier statement, Frozenbyte said that it is going to release the first 3 games separately on eShop. So far, the first two games are already out. It is also said that a physical bundle of all 3 games is coming out at a later date.
