Despite being a Nintendo eShop launch title on Wii U, independent developer Frozenbyte’s first self-published title – Trine 2: Director’s Cut – is seemingly one of the most technically advanced games on the system; boasting beautifully detailed visuals, and up to four-player co-op – both locally and online.
One feature that the Wii U version of Trine 2 is lacking, however, is voice chat. Not to worry, though, as Frozenbyte has confirmed – in reply to a fan’s YouTube comment – that headset support is being added to the game via a downloadable update next month.
“We will add Voice Chat support in an update in December. :) (However you’ll need a headset with a separate mic – the GamePad mic doesn’t work directly sadly.)”
Whilst this hasn’t been the case with Wii or DSiWare – or even through the Nintendo 3DS eShop, as far as we’ve seen – do you see developers’ ability to patch in new features post-launch as a great way to respond to feedback from fans, or is it a cynical approach to rushing out a bare-bones game before cramming in additional functionality later on?
