Frozenbyte‘s Trine 2: Director’s Cut – the Wii U console’s edition of Trine 2 – was released 2012 in the Nintendo eShop as a Wii U launch title. Based on his experience with working on the platform, Frozenbyte’s marketing manager, Julius Fondem, has told Gamers Xtreme that “the Wii U is a truly powerful console.” Fondem went on to say that Nintendo’s latest console is “definitely more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PS3,” echoing words uttered last year by 5th Cell’s Jeremiah Slackzka.
Gamers Xtreme: Trine 2: Director’s Cut is by far, one of the best looking games available on the Wii U. I did notice the visuals were crisper than those on the PS3/360. What was it like developing for the Wii U? Is it more powerful than the public seems to believe?
Fondem: We have really enjoyed working with the Wii U hardware. It was rather easy to port our modern proprietary engine to it, and it does pack the punch to bring to life some really awesome visuals. The Wii U is a very modern console with a lot of RAM which helped us out a lot during development. The hardware capabilities have improved quite a lot from the original Wii, and the Wii U is a truly powerful console. The console is definitely more powerful than the rXbox 360 and PS3.
