Valve Revealed PORTAL: COMPANION COLLECTION For Switch
Valve is bringing back its beloved series to the Switch, all while developing for the Steam Deck launch. Portal: Companion Collection will bundle both Portal and Portal 2 for on-the-go interdimensional puzzle cracking. The game was revealed during Nintendo’s latest Nintendo Direct and featured a brief trailer showing gameplay of the game playing on the Switch.
Portal was launched as part of The Orange Box for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2007. It got some amazing reception and convinced Valve to bring us a sequel in 2011 and released on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Portal 2 was able to create upon the lore of the first game and deliver a well-received story along with modifications to its teleport-like puzzle mechanics. It also added the capability for co-op play local and online which will be available on the Switch version as well.
Valve is working on its own portable gaming tech at the moment. It’s a very good decision from Valve and raises some eyebrows as to what else may lie in this recently found partnership with Nintendo. Maybe we will see more games by Valve on the Switch very soon.
For now, not much is known if the Switch version will come with any exclusive features or motion controls. Portal: Companion Collection is priced at $19.99 and it will be released sometime in 2022.
