Fans have been waiting a long time for Trine 2, but it's finally almost here. FrozenByte released the first game in 2009, an unusual side-scrolling platformer/puzzler/action game with a medieval fantasy setting and solo or co-op play, for PC and PlayStation 3; Mac and Linux versions followed later. The sequel, which had been set for a late 2011 release, now has some official dates.
FrozenByte confirms that Mac and PC users will be able to nab the game from Steam starting tomorrow for $14.99 (via CVG). There's also a $24.99 Collector's Edition available that adds a digital artbook and soundtrack to the package. A PlayStation Network release will follow on December 20, and an Xbox Live version will arrive the following day. This marks the series' first appearance on Microsoft's console; an XBLA version of Trine had been planned, but it never materialized.
