Finnish game developer Frozenbyte has taken to the PlayStation Blog today to announce it will be porting its side-scrolling platformer Trine 2: Complete Story, to the PlayStation 4.

Said the company: "Well, we’re happy to tell you that the rumours are indeed true! Trine 2: Complete Story is headed for the PlayStation 4! We are self-publishing Trine 2: Complete Story on PlayStation 4 and it’s the very latest version of the game, including a total of 20 exciting levels full of adventure (that’s the main campaign plus the expansion Goblin Menace and the secret level Dwarven Caverns)."

When asked about how the game would look on the PS4, Frozenbyte commented: "PlayStation 4 has allowed us to go all-out on the technical side, so you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful graphics in 1080p resolution at 60 fps! What’s more, the game also supports stereoscopic 3D! With 3D displays becoming more common every day, we’ve made sure Trine 2: Complete Story is a treat to play in 3D as well."

Trine 2: Complete Story is a side-scrolling romp featuring action, puzzles and platforming, in which gamers can choose to play as a Thief, Wizard or Knight, who must battle their way through a fantastical fairytale world. The game features physics-based puzzles using fire, water, gravity and magic; goblins galore as the main foes; and a promised magical environment full of wonder.

PS4 owners are also promised an intuitive control system designed to take full advantage of the console's DualShock 4 touch surface, along with online and local co-op with up to three players.

Frozenbyte has said it hopes Trine 2 will be ready when the PS4 launches, but notes it could be delayed. Either way, stay tuned to PSU for more details as they are released.

Sony has been reticent to confirm 3D on the PS4, with only a rumor that Assassin's Creed IV and Call of Duty: Ghosts would support 3D as they are listed under '3D Games' on the PlayStation Store. But 3D support for these titles has not been confirmed. Now, with Trine 2: Complete Story announced as being able to be played in 3D, will more games follow ?
