It's hardly worth it to make the DLC available for PSN and XBL and they see potential sales in the WiiU version as there isn't much competition on the platform.

~50k sales after 7 months on the platform.
PSN might be a little higher since the first one was PSN/PC exclusive, but not by that much.

They should skip consoles all together and make the series PC exclusive.

Trine 2 was number 1 on Wii U eshop recent best seller the last time I checked.

Still is.

Mario is #3, so its a good sign in my eyes.

Yeah that's why I said that it makes more sense to release the DLC for WiiU and not XBL/PSN, since it's a) fairly new on that platform and b) not much competition.

I'm fairly sure that it will do better than the XBL/PSN version, though I can already guarantee that a possible Trine 3 on WiiU will do much worse than Trine 2.



So many idiots roaming VGChartz nowadays....

Do you have to have played the first one to understand or get into the game? This is a game Im looking at but unsure

I FEEL ASHAMED I NEVER CONTINUED TO SUPPORT SEGA AND HELPED IN THEIR HARDWARE DEMISE, NINTENDO SAVED ME AND WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT A REAL VIDEO GAMES COMPANY!

I saw an article in French where Trine 2's developer was saying Wii U sales were very good compared to Xbox and PS3.



Trine 2 was given away as part of PS+ in Europe after it was delayed for several months, Day 1, free for PS+

No wonder it didn't have good sales.

i wouldnt recommend this game. (the stupid comments irrelevant to that, its just not good. too much time spent trying to make it "pretty")

Trine 2 is an indie game that looks and feels like an AAA game. The graphics are breathtaking.

The Wii U will be, like the Wii before, the number one console for Jump&Run-Fans so it is clear that Jump&Runs like Trine 2 has much higher sales on Wii U.

Is Trine 1 coming? I'd like to have both in one place and it seems like T2 is doing well.

Also, right now is the time for new intellectual properties to release on the Wii U. People like me look at the Wii U library and we see games like Mass Effect 3, Batman Arkham City, Call of Duty, and Assassin's Creed on the Wii U and we totally ignore them (well.....I am getting Batman because I love Batman). We played the rest of the games in the series on other platforms and, unless there's a noticeable improvement, we want to keep 'em together if possible. With a niche game or a new franchise, I will be much more likely to build up that loyalty on Nintendo's new hardware.
