Excelent news for the Nintendo Switch owners!!
I’m really pleased to finally be able to get and play Trine 3 on my Nintendo. I waited it for years to be launched on WiiU but it never happened. I enjoyed a lot the first two games and I am willing to try the third part of the saga, eventhough the game was not very well received by the community.
I can just say thank you to the team for such a great news and I wish them all of the best success for the incoming games. You trully deserve more recognition for yor hard work. Keep it up!!
Just purchased but no touchscreen support like the Wii U version or am I missing something? Kind of ruins the gameplay in handheld because drawing with a thumbstick isn’t natural
Unfortunately we decided to go with the classic controller layout. This way you don’t have to let go of the controller while drawing objects.
Still thanks for the report, we might look into this if there are other reports, but this was just most logical way for us to go with the controls.
I also would like touch screen support added in an update. Leaving that out appears to be a lazy cost cutting measure. I already bought this game of on the Wii U at least give us the same version without removing features.
Also my daughter and her two friends play this game but my youngest daughter is always left out and sad because there is not support for a 4th controller. Any chance to can add that even if 2 people are the same character?
One last thing, will this come out as a digital bundle when all 3 games are released?
Thanks for the feedback, we’re looking into the touch screen support. The issue is here that we’re porting the PC version, which doesn’t have it. I can’t promise it, but hopefully we’ll be able to add it.
Also unfortunately there can only be three players, so we aren’t planning to add fourth controller support. This would need a lot of changes in the game, and this isn’t even asked a lot.
Hopefully your youngest daughter still gets to enjoy the game with you or play the second time with other kids. Also changing the controller could be good, or maybe she has a friend who could play with her later?
Sorry for the inconvenience, but again thanks a lot for the feedback. Cheers!
Thanks for the response
Glad to see this available for Switch owners. Has/Will the game be patched beyond the current PC version (v2.12 build 510)?
We’ll be porting the PC version onto Switch, so there won’t be new content. Is there something specific you’d like to be included?
Will there be a physical release or just digital?
Will these be digital release only or will I be able to pick up a copy in stores as well at a later date?
At the moment game is only available from the eShop. Stay tuned for the details about GameTrust partnership. 🙂
I just can’t wait for Trine 2 and 3 to come on my switch. Do you have a release date atm? I almost finished Trine 1. I have discovered Trine serie on my Wii U, finished the 2 games, and cried out not seeing the third coming…
Please tell me Trine 2 and Trine 3 are coming before the end of 2018… 😉
Unfortunately no release date for the games yet. Thanks for the support! 🙂
I bought this game just so I could play co-op with my girlfriend, the description of the game in the nintendo estore says that it’s possible to play with single joy cons. But when i enter the game, this is not the case, the only way to play is by combining the 2 joycons into one controller.
Now i can’t play co-op at all, because i don’t have 2 extra joy con controllers and i’m not planning on buying them.
Could you guys please fix this, and if there’s no way to fix it: could i get my money back? I only bought this game to play co-op.
Unfortunately it’s not possible to play Trine games with just a single joy con. Email us at the address below if you want more information about this
Update: This message had false information due to a mistake on my part, and for this reason has been edited in February 2019. Sorry for all inconvenience regarding this!
I cannot make this work, could you tell me the exact route to go in order to play with a single joy con each (1 switch)
Update on 22th February! Due to a mistake on my part I failed to tell that Trine games on Nintendo Switch are not playable with a single joy con.
Below however might help with some other games. If you have any questions regarding this please email us at:
1. Press the + or – button to open the Nintendo Switch menu for controllers
2. Press the sync button on top of each joy con until they are no longer detected
3. Follow instructions, which should be press R + L button to connect the controllers separately
After that you can just start the game and join with each controller. However, please note that we do recommend each player having two joy cons for the best experience.
Keep up the good work and Glad to see this available for Switch owners.
This 2 player feature does not work. As soon as you set the Joycons split then when you go back to the game it says reconnect the joy cons so you have to make them one again. Please fix this as I mainly brought the game for 2 player purposes and if you dont then I will have wasted money on this thanks
Unfortunately Trine games on Nintendo Switch are not playable with just a single joy con controller.
Update: Unfortunately it’s not possible to play Trine games with a single joy controller. This was a mistake on my part and has been updated to this message on February 2019, which is why later replies might not apply.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
I’m also having this same problem, joy cons seperate and when you go in the game it makes you connect again.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
Is it still possible to disconnect and then connect the joy cons controllers normally (while in-game)?
We haven’t gotten other reports, so not sure what we can do but feel free to contact Nintendo as well. For faster replies note that you can also emails to us at
My friends and I are totally digging your Nine Parchments game on the Xbox right now ( I know, we are late to the party.) It would be awesome to see Trine make its way to the Xbox. Could this be possible?? Thanks for the plentiful amazing gaming memories with my friends.
Thanks for your support! 😊
We currently don’t have plans to port the Trine trilogy to Xbox, but we’re listening if we get a lot of requests. Cheers!
i played almost all of these games. except the ones with low graphic art like f-zero, mario kart, castlevania, metroid etc. contra had low graphic but very enjoyable with co-op.
earthbound, ff should be top5.
idk how many times i’ve replayed crono trigger and earthworm jim. others mostly 75%.
Will you be releasing Trine 3 on its own (without the other two included) for the Switch? I’ve played the other two, and want to play 3 and 4 when released for the Switch. Great series!
Yes, the plan is to have it separately available on the Nintendo eShop like the other games. 🙂
Thanks for your interest, and stay tuned!
Why did you announced this collection last autumn if Trine 3 is not ready at all? If there’s a problem, why don’t you do an official explanation to say why the game is delayed?
A release date for Trine 3?
I played Trine, Trine 2 on Wii U, and bought them again on Switch. It’s missing more than the 3. 🙂
Unfortunately we don’t have a release date just yet, there have been some delays, but we are working on it at the moment. 🙂
Please come to Brazil!
I only bought this game because it was advertised as a local two player game. Now I cannot use a single joy on to play it? Super disappointed.
Unfortunately our games are not really intended to be played with single Joy-Con, a second pair of Joy-Cons or a Pro-controller is recommended for local multiplayer on Nintendo Switch. Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.
