Square Enix reveals mystery Japanese PSN RPG – and it’s not what you think

trine Square Enix reveals mystery Japanese PSN RPG   and its not what you thinkWhen Square Enix and RPGs are mentioned in the same breath, a multitude of franchises spring to mind.

So when they mentioned earlier this week that a Japanese PSN release was planned for an Action RPG, our speculation meter went into meltdown.

Well the wait is over, the game has been announced – but it’s not what you think.

It’s Trine!  Or more specifically Trine: The Lost Relic.  Square Enix has picked up the Japanese publishing rights and given the game a fancy new subtitle.

Trine came out in October 2009 and was fairly well received.  It is a physics-based action game where three characters allow clever solutions to challenges created by hazardous puzzles and enemies.

The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics – each character’s different abilities and tactics can be used to invent new ways to overcome obstacles and save the kingdom.

Did anyone buy the original?
