Frozenbyte: We Had No Issues At All With Porting Trine 2 To Wii U

trine_2_wallpaperFrozenbyte’s Trine 2 launched in 2011 on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

Wii U’s edition of the puzzle platform game, Trine 2: Director’s Cut, released last year in the Nintendo eShop alongside the launch of Nintendo’s latest console.

Although the Wii U has a slower clock speed than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the developer says it had zero problems with porting the game to Wii U.

In North America, today is the last day to grab Trine 2: Director’s Cut from the Nintendo eShop at a discounted price of $15.99. The game will go back to its original price – $19.99 – on January 7th.

“The whole architecture is running very well and we were able to ramp the Trine 2 art to a higher degree than with the other consoles.”

“So for porting no issues at all and there is a nice base for future original development too. Maybe some were looking for a larger leap in terms of pure power, but in the end I believe most developers will be quite comfortable with the system.”

“Absolutely, but again in a very different direction that Nintendo has always been known for. They create their own standards and have huge IPs to fall back on. As for untapping the hidden power of new consoles.. I think Nintendo personifies that in all of their first party titles, regardless of the actual CPU or GPU performance.”

        1. In the case of Assassin’s Creed 3 all versions are glitchy, and EA just plain hates Nintendo for not using Origin on the Wii U. Everything else is minor and only techies looking at every little detail will notice them.

        2. Console* . Almost every single port looks better than the ps3 version.

          Mass effect 1 was recently ported to PS3 , and it has HORRIFIC framerate issues and glitches etc etc. Why is this ? Is this because it’s a lazy port , or the ps3 is simply not powerfull enough to run Mass effect 1 ? EX-FUCKING-ACTLY

          The xbox 360 was where games like Batman , Mass effect , CoD were built on , so it’s no suprise they run well on that platform.

          Lazy ports are not a graphical benchmark , look at trine 2 , that seems to of come out significantly better. And don’t give me that ”it’s not a taxing game”’ BS , because if it wasn’t then it would look better on 360 and ps3.

          Not really bothered about power anyway. I’m happy with the graphics of my 3DS , but that’s just me. Although I know te next ZELDA , Smash bros , etc is gunna look fucking awesome on the wiiu.

        2. Uncharted 3 did not wow me in the graphics department. The desert stage with the fantastic lighting looked great, but that’s about it. Some of the stages in Uncharted 3 had far too many jaggies. Uncharted 2 is more consistent in the graphics department and overall a better looking game than Uncharted 3 — even though Uncharted 3 beats Uncharted 2 on a technical level. God of War 3 is also a better looking games than Uncharted 3.

        2. Yeah, but look at Crysis 1 (100% PC version, not a dumb port for PC)…. console versions looks like shit compared to PC, yes, i own a PS3 and PC, im not saying PS3 version looks too bad, PC is just miles ahead and still, Crysis 1 sold better on consoles, that proves the point that gameplay is much more important, thats why Crysis 2 was first made for consoles (better sales).

          But Crysis 2 for example is not much better on PC (visually), it is better ofc but i mean, much less difference between this game than Crysis 1.

          Now, question for you….. why?

          1. Crysis 2 is more optimized for consoles than Crysis 1
          2. Crysis 1 is a bad port for consoles = lazy developers.
          3. Or Crysis 1 is just more demanding than Crysis 2 = this must be equal to better graphics,
          physics etc but many gamers dont agree with this, they said Crysis 2 looks better and thats why something is strange with this (maybe answer 1. or 2. is correct)

          One of those three answer is 100% truth, THE FUNNY THING IS you never said “lazy developers” are to blame, you never said early console games are looking worse than 2010-2012 console games for example, you are just saying new Wii U games WONT AND CANT look much better than early Wii U games and last, we all know that “demanding” is equal to better graphics, physics etc (i mean, why would Crysis 2 be inferior to Crysis 1, it makes no sense)… so basically for you, none of the answers are correct, right? you do realize something strange?

          My points is…. if Crysis 1 can be made for Xbox 360/PS3 than why cant they port next gen games for Wii U? they can ofc im 100% sure without much problems but we dont know whats the real reasons why someone wont port a game for Wii U (its not only about specs really). PCs are miles ahead from PS3/360 and still games are made for consoles (specs talk)….

          Maybe 3rd party just hate Nintendo, maybe Nintendo dont care about 3rd party games, maybe they just think Nintendo is 80% for casuals, maybe its too much to support 3 different consoles (+ PC), anything is really possible, not just damn specs lol. And again, the funny thing is you are only talking that the specs are the real problem… it could be, but ofc not only that.

          And no, i dont own a Wii U… im mostly a hardcore PC gamer but im gaming on Sony and Nintendo consoles too since 3rd gen console.

            1. Yeh , for about 80% of the game (the vast majority) it runs like it does on xbox 360 , maybe even smoother. BUT sometimes like say once every 20 minutes on average you might be in a certain area where the framerate looks like it drops to about 10FPS for 5 seconds , and then goes back to normal.

              What i was worried about was the game running at a horribly low framerate all the way through. Thats not the case at all , as it runs beautifully for the most and has a few annoyoing drops , kinda how mass effect 1 runs on 360.

              But overall it runs fine , and looks really really sharp because of FXAA . And the exclusive content , features and off screen play make it the definitive version.
              Although whilst it may be the definitive version , it’s a year late and overpriced….

Although due to a slow clock speed, the game STILL packs a punch with beautiful graphics, and impressive play control… not to mention adding visual effects that you won’t find in the original T2 for PS3/X360. Frozenbyte should add another follow-up to T2 or add a brand new sequel to the Trine franchise for both Steam and U.

Super Metroid was more beautiful and challenging in detail on the Super NES. The Metroid Prime trilogy was one of the best games ever made by an American game developer… Retro Studios. Rumor has it that Prime 1 for the GameCube was powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine (1 or 2, I assume).

          all edram in every console before comes to 20mb wiiu all on its lonesome has 32 mb WAKEY WAKEY NUMB SKULL

          x360 total catch buffer ram on gpu and cpu = 11mb
          wiiu total on cpu gpu ram= 35mb is this computing dude !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          ps3 9mb disc drive speed 22mb for the wiiu custom drive OH LOOK EVERYBODY THE WIIU DRIVE IS 2.5 X FASTER THAN PS3S ASLEEP IN CLASS WERE WE HEAD IN HANDS WANKERS WILL BE WANKERS !!!!!!!!!!!!

          RAM X360 512MB PLUS 10MB EDRAM – os = 32MB = 480MB FOR GAMING TOTAL =480MB
          RAM PS3 512MB NO EDRAM = OS =50mb = 462mb total games = 462mb got that dumb cunts

          wiiu 1gb ram plus 32mb edram for games =1056mb for games oh look its more than wii ps3 and x360 combined and its getting data from a fast drive too and its feeding a huge cpu catch memory and its more efficient than ps3s code and supports better compression oh lok 3x the ps3 effective games ram OH LOOK A FACT SLAYED AN OPINION AS IT ALWAYS DOES !!!!!!!

          the weak cpu LTFOL xenon x360 has 1mb catch wiiu has 3mb the x360 cpu has a sram catch the wiiu has a edram catch the x360s catch runs at half cpu speed the wiiu catch runs at full cpu speed

          the x360 cpu has 1 execution unit per core (lol half of atom that crap intel thing it has 2 of them lol)

          wiiu enhanced broadway expresso cores have 5 execution units each thats 15 total 15 execution units VS 3 execution units LOL FANBOYS LOL YOUR EXPOSED AS SCUM LOL @ WEAK CPU

          15 execution units vs 3 your seriously deluding your fanboy selves now !!!!!!!!!!!!!

          EXPRESSO CPU 5 INSTRUCTIONS PER CLOCK EFFICIENT

          XENON CPU 2 INSTRUCTIONS PER CLOCK EFFICIENT LESS THAN HALF THE WIIU CPU LOL

          WIIU A DEDICATED HD SURROUND SOUND DSP THATS EASY 2X PLUS THE ALL ROUND SOUND CAPABILITY OF X360 AND IT DONT TOUCH THE CPU ONE BIT

          XENON WASTES A FULL CORE ON SOUND FACT FANBOYS RUN ALONG I HAVE EXPOSED YOU

          WIIU HAS A DUALCORE ARM CO CPU XBOX AND PS3 HAVE NO CP CPU

  6. The Wii U is more powerful the Xbox 360 and PS3, the clockspeed doesn’t mean less powerful, the Wii U has multiple cores. The Wii U must be attractive to third parties to develop for and I think it is and will be.

  7. Slower than 360/PS3 CPU?Ram itself can back that up.1GB of ram is larger than the 360/PS3 500+mb ram.Processes and other graphical things work much better on WiiU

    1. slower than ps3 and x360 based on no clock speeds no bus bit data no single or dual bus data in other words totally made up

      the gamecube had a dual bus FACT 64 bit ain ram and 8 bit access ram FACT

      the wii had a dual ram bus 64bit x 2 1t sram 64bit bus 4gb
      ghddr3 ram 64 bit bus 4gb double data rate not double clocked like 1t sram so again 2 ram buses

      but all of a sudden wiiu has a single ram bus and only 50% more bandwidtgh than x360 DDDDDEEERRRPPPPPP YOU FGUKING PEOPLE BIELEVEE ANYTHING THE ANTI NINTENDO TROLLS SPUW OUT THERE TROLL HOLES

  8. gamecube two memory buses wii 2 memory buses wiiu single memory bus because anandtech want to make up lies about wiiu it has TWO main ram buses just like gamecube and wii did THERE DELIBERATELY LEAVING THE OTHER OUT TO LOOK WEAK ITS A LIE

    THE CPU HAS A 3MB EDRAM CATCH THATS 6 X BIGGER THAN PS3S CATCH DUMB FACE AND 3 X BIGGER THAN X360 SO HOW IS IT WEAKER YOU ASS CLOWN

    THE CATCH IS IBM EDRAM NOT SRAM THERE FOR ITS ALSO 2X PLUS THE BANDWIDTH WEN IBM REPLACE SRAM WITH EDRAM IN A CATCH IT DOUBLES THE BANDWIDTH

    SOOOOO NUMB NUTS WHY DOUBLE THE BANDWIDTH TRO WEAKEN THE CPU ARE YOU FREAKING INSANE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. the wiiu is so weak it does HD 5.1 and stereo surround to the gamepad speakers all at the same time in real time with out even touching its cpu

    the xbox 360 does sd surroud sound just plain old DD and it wastes a cpu core to do it

    but the wiiu is weak i fucking love retards there such goofy little bastards

    Like

      1. yeah he said the gamepad and its not 6.1 its 5.1 plus 2 for gamepad plus 1 for wii remote so its 8.1 is actual speakers but its 5.1 plus 2 plus 1 all at the same time no cpu required

        gamepad streaming is handled by co cpu camera co cpu io and os co cpu touchscreen co cpu etc
        ds for sound the expresso is 100% games performance the xbox 360 was like 60% for games the rest was os and sound OWNED

  13. No get your facts right. Wii U has a slightly faster clock rate than PS3 and Xbox 360. That’s why you won’t have porting issues. This is the basics.

It’s the CPU that are a bit slower but Xbots are afraid of the others on the market.So muchs lies we hear from them just to protect their beloved pay to play online,pay to recharge their controllers,required 5 dvd’s for a game and finally their POW POW SHOOT BANG,POW POW SHOOT BANG only game style console. :P

  14. The man knows what he’s talking about. The Wii U has barely shown us what it can do yet. It doesn’t have a game that pushes it to the limits yet. That will come in a few years and will most likely be a first party game. 3rd parties rushed these ports to get them out for launch, some ended up better than others but they’re all perfectly good games judging from all of the reviews I’ve read. Slightly better, but not worse.
