Microsoft is still "working to resolve" trademark issues currently preventing Trenched from making it onto European shores, says Double Fine Producer Brad Muir. But with a dispute regarding the game's name between Microsoft and Portugese designer of board game 'Trench' Rui Alípio Monteiro, Trenched is still on hold in Europe until the trademark is cleared. Monteiro had planned to turn Trench into a video game.

"This entire process has been very frustrating to us and it makes us sad that the people of Europe can't play our game," Muir told Destructoid. "Microsoft owns the IP for Trenched and they are working to resolve things as quickly as possible. I wish there were more information to give but it's still unclear as to how things will shake out. The one thing I do know is that the game will be released in those territories!

"It might take a while, but Europeans will have the opportunity to stick it to Vlad and his Tubes. We would recommend playing through Castle Crashers for the 17th time while you wait, because that game rules and Dan Paladin is a national treasure."

You can grab Trenched from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 Microsoft Points in the US, or download Castle Crashers for 1200 Microsoft Points in Europe.
