The Trine series will be back next year with Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

The indie developer has announced it is partnering with publisher Modus Games to give fans another delightful and beautiful puzzle platformer.

“We are absolutely thrilled to embark on this journey with Frozenbyte,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Modus Games. “There’s no doubt Trine 4 will be the game players have been asking for.”

“Trine 4 is going to be the best in the series,” said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte. “We have rekindled our love for the franchise, heard and seen the fan feedback, and our hearts are set on exceeding those expectations. Trine is back!”

The last entry in the series, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, did not pan out very well, mostly because its ending came out of nowhere, leaving most of the story unresolved.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince coming 2019

Some fans didn’t like the game moving from a 2.5D layout to an almost 3D one. If Trine 4 will indeed be the Trine “players have been asking for” then the smart money is on a more “classic” experience that returns to the series’ roots.

We’re still not sure if Trine 4 will continue where Trine 3 left off, or if we’re to have a whole new story and (maybe) new characters.

All we know is that Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is coming out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2019.
