505 Games and Turn Me Up Games are bringing the acclaimed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to Nintendo Switch.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was originally developed by Starbreeze Studios, and first released on PC and last-generation consoles in 2013. Publisher 505 Games has today announced that the game will get its long-awaited release on Nintendo Switch next week.
We came to Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons pretty late, but were thrilled by its sumptuous visuals, and how its puzzle-based gameplay fostered a deep sense of connection between the player and its sibling protagonists. It was formula that director, Josef Fares, evolved in last year’s prison-break adventure game, A Way Out.
The original release was a single-player game, with each brother assigned to their own controller thumb stick. The Nintendo Switch edition will include an all-new, two-player co-op mode.
Although this might make some of the game’s more emotional beats a little less affecting, the game is a perfect fit for co-op play, and we look forward embarking on a journey to the Tree of Life once again.
The Switch edition also includes some bonus content, including a behind-the-scenes commentary from Fares and a gallery of concept art.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons will be available via the Nintendo eShop from May 28, 2019. It’s priced at $14.99, and available with a 10% discount before release.
