Portal and Portal 2 are coming to Switch in one collection

Together the titles have earned over 100 industry awards and sold over 35 million units worldwide.

Coming to Switch later this year is Portal: Companion Collection which features Portal and Portal 2 from Valve.

Originally released as part of The Orange Box, Portal was heralded as a ground-breaking puzzle platforming game that changed the way players could approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment.

Throughout Portal, which is played from a first-person perspective, players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals and maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space. The game also features a humorous narrative as players adventure and puzzle their way through the Aperture Science Laboratories.

Portal 2 also challenges players to use wits over weaponry, and they once again face off against an inventive, power-mad A.I. named GLaDOS. Players meet various characters as they make their way through new areas of the laboratories and and will try to solve a wider variety of portal puzzles. Portal 2 also includes a cooperative game mode with local, split-screen, and online multiplayer.

Portal: Companion Collection will be available worldwide for Switch later this year through the Nintendo eShop for $19.99, or your regional equivalent.
