A few months ago, Valve announced that its two excellent Portal games would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but we didn’t know when. Today’s Nintendo Direct presentation cleared that up. Portal companion collection will be released later today on the Switch for $19.99. The collection includes both the original portal from 2007 as well as the larger, action-oriented one portal 2 from 2011. Whether you missed these games the first time or just want to replay some classics, this collection sounds like a great way to return to one of the most immersive worlds Valve has ever created.
While the original portal was a pure single player experience, portal 2 has a split-screen co-op experience; You can also pay this mode online with a friend. And while these games were created on PC, Valve was also releasing them portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 – and if I remember correctly, the controls of the game were very well mapped to a controller. Given that the Portal series is more puzzle-based than traditional first-person games, you shouldn’t have any trouble navigating the world with a pair of Joy-Con controllers.
