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.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
