The Nintendo Mini livestream revealed that Portal: Companion Collection will be available late yesterday on the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase has revealed that Portal: Companion Collection will release late yesterday, June 28, on Nintendo Switch. Portal: Companion Collection was revealed during the February 2022 Nintendo Direct, though it only announced a 2022 release time period at the time.
Portal: Companion Collection brings Portal and Portal 2 to the Nintendo system for the first time. The original Portal is a critically acclaimed first-person puzzle game where the protagonist must escape from a scientific facility controlled by GLaDOS. The only tool the player has at their disposal is the Portal Gun, which creates two portals on the surface, allowing them to navigate hazards. Portal 2 involves players being trapped by GLaDOS once again, where they must survive deadly games, as well as the intrigue of a new AI, known as Wheatley. Portal 2 also adds a co-op mode, forcing two players to think with Portals. Nintendo will typically extend the release of a major game during one of its Direct sessions, and this time Portal: Companion Collection itself was given a surprise release date. Portal: Companion Collection will be available on the Nintendo eShop late yesterday.
The official Portal: Companion Collection page on the Nintendo Switch eShop has also revealed that the multiplayer in Portal 2 can be played locally, in split-screen or online. Gamers will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to use the multiplayer mode. It’s currently unclear whether Portal: Companion Collection will feature DLC content from either game, but fans won’t have to wait long to find out for sure.
Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase may not have the great first-party reveal fans have come to expect from Directs, and the big announcement of upcoming Persona games on Nintendo Switch has been diluted a bit by the previous reveal. that they were coming to PlayStation and Xbox, but the show had a few interesting revelations. The fact that Portal games will soon be available on Nintendo systems for the first time is a big announcement, especially since they only received console versions in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 generation and are not easy to play on modern consoles. . The Portal games are some of Valve’s best, and Nintendo fans will finally get a chance to experience the horror of holding GLaDOS in their hands in Portal: Companion Collection.
