This niche title originally debuted on old consoles way back in 2013, bringing a new twist on puzzle-solving gameplay and some fun little gags along the way. But that simple setup held a sometimes heart-wrenching story about love, loss and survival that was surprising, even for an artsy indie title. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons then made the jump to the PS4 and Xbox One in 2015, with what was essentially the exact same game, but running in 1080p and at nice smooth frame rate.
Since then, the gorgeous art and simple controls made for an appealing romp with a friend, and 505 Games managed a dark and often depressing story about death that squeezed a tear from the hardest of hearts. Exploration is a central element, and the incredible art makes this so much more of a joy to do, even as you struggle to come to grips with both the emotional story and intentionally obtuse controls.
And with this new Switch version, we can expect the mirrored control scheme of the previous versions to be recreated on the JoyCons, much to the amusement and frustration of gamers. And with the decent graphical power of the platform, we can also expect that graphics to look as stunning as ever.
Along with the announcement, comes a new trailer meant to show off the new version of the game on the portable console, check that out below. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is due out for the Switch on May 28th, be on the lookout for it in the eShop.
