NVIDIA announced its new mobile processor, the Tegra K1 at this year’s CES a few days ago. In the presentation by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, you might have seen a short bit of Trine 2 🙂
You can see the Trine 2 part shown the event at around 17:44 into this video:
We’ve had our thoughts on bringing the Trine series to mobile platforms for quite some time now, but so far the technology hasn’t been powerful enough, until now! The Tegra K1 is something we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and we’re happy to say that it packs quite the punch, and is able to run Trine 2: Complete Story nicely. So in the near future when the Tegra K1 Android devices start rolling out, you’ll get to see Trine 2 on mobile for the first time!
The Android / Tegra K1 version of Trine 2 is based on our own engine. This is our first Android port, so the development has been interesting and we might share more about our experiences later on.
Looks very nice guys! Hoping for some Splot and maybe Trine 3 soon as well! 🙂
I’d really love to see it released for iOS too
iOS unfortunately looks unlikely due to the lack of powerful enough hardware, but good to hear support for that version as well in any case! 🙂
Will it be released exclusively for Tegra K1?
It’s exclusively for Tegra K1 at least for now. This might change in the future when more powerful hardware comes out, but I’m not making any promises about this.
First of all, I wanna say this. I’m a really big fan of Trine 1 and 2. It’s one of the best games I have ever played. And I’m not much of a gamer, but this game got me hooked. I also envy you guys for making such amazing graphics, realistic, awesome. And the storyline is amazing and goes well with the voices. But something was bugging me. I know this question has already been asked, but I’m still wondering something. The Tegra K1 uses 192 cores and uses the Kepler architecture. For example Apple A7 also has 192 cores and uses the Cyclone architecture. I know the gpu of the Tegra K1 is really powerful and is capable of 350 GFLOPS Compared to the A7’s 115 GFLOPS. The Xiaomi Mi Pad sports the amazing processor and runs Trine 2 so smooth. What I was wondering is if the iPad Air is also capable of running Trine 2 or 1 or even a slimmed down version. And compared to Android, where games are most of the time contain lag, ios has the better fps. Since Android is open source and runs on a lot of devices so a lot of optimization would take a lot of time. Because it annoys me, that I have to use my laptop to play this game and can not play it on my iPad or Nexus. Because this game is just wonderful. So I was wondering if an iPad Air could run this? And if there are any future plans of releasing this amazing game?
Many thanks for your support! Glad to hear you have enjoyed the Trine games that much.
Trine and Trine 2 require a considerable amount of power, so at least a version similar to the Tegra build would not run on iPad Air. At the moment we do not have plans for an iOS release, but I’m not saying it’s never a possibility in the future. 🙂
Is it already released? because there is a lot videos on YouTube with Trine 2 gameplay on Xiaomi MiPad.
Trine 2 for Android is not officially released yet, but hopefully soon it will be 🙂
i see what you did there… It’s pre-installed on Nvidia Shield Tablet, isn’t it?
