It was only a few weeks ago when E3 was in full swing and Joystiq posted (and we reported) that Atlus were bringing Frozenbyte’s Trine to Xbox Live Arcade. Now, in a post over on the official Frozenbyte forums, developer Joel Kinnunen has thrown doubt over that news by saying:
“The XBLA version and its features is just speculation at this point. I can say that in all honesty, as developers, we would love as many people as possible to be able to play our games and therefore I hope Trine will eventually find its way to XBLA too. We are not really looking to take sides in the console wars, we just want people to play our games – obviously more platforms means more money but it also means that everybody could play the game on their favorite console.
That said, the fact is that the PSN and PC versions will be released a lot earlier than any possible other versions, and the PSN and PC versions are what we are focusing on right now.”
Did Atlus jump the gun? Did Joystiq get it wrong? Are Frozenbyte just doing that whole `being coy` thing that developers seem to love so much? Is Trine coming to XBLA or not?
We don’t have any answers, we’re just throwing out questions there. But it seems the official word for now is that nothing has been confirmed.
