on February 22, 2017 8:17 AM

Spiral House and Maximum Games announced today that Troll and I will be releasing on Nintendo Switch later this Spring.

This version of the game will be playable both at home and on the go, and will still support both the solo and split-screen co-op gameplay present in the other versions of the game. Curious about Troll and I? Here is an overview of the game from the developers:

In Troll and I, players will be tasked with strategically utilizing Troll and Otto’s unique strengths to overcome the many enemies they will face in the Scandinavian backcountry – whether they be the human hunters pursuing Troll for their own greedy ends or mythical orcs known as ‘Ahky’ unleashed from the depths of the earth. Solo players can seamlessly switch between Otto and Troll in-game, using Troll’s massive size and strength to throw boulders at enemies or Otto’s speed and resourcefulness to stealthily take out a lone hunter without raising an alarm. Troll and I also supports split-screen gameplay for couch co-op, as two heads, and pairs of hands, are always better than one.

Throughout the game, players will encounter various natural resources when playing as Otto, and should make use of Otto’s keen senses and attunement to nature to track down wildlife, which can be hunted and used to heal him during battle. Otto will exploit the materials of the forest to fashion spears and other weapons that will prove crucial to the duo’s survival. Otto’s connection to his surroundings and the environment around him plays a key role in the player successfully navigating treacherous situations.

The developers also released a new trailer for the title that covers key gameplay features, which you can watch below alongside new screenshots of the game and the Nintendo Switch box art. Troll and I will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 21, with the Switch version following later this Spring.
