Unity 4.3 is now available with new developer tools for 2D video games

Unity released version 4.3 of its game development engine today with a raft of new tools designed to streamline the creation of 2D titles. The update includes automatic sprite splicing, a new 2D animation window, a fully-integrated 2D physics system and the option to mix 2D and 3D visual styles together.

In the latest release, video game developers can also use JavaScript and Boo while scripting apps for the Windows Store. This includes a new trial API, which means creators can offer their players a demo or try-before-you-buy mode.
