Finally, I can bring GLaDOS on the go!
Portal is one of my favorite game series of all time. It’s challenging, it’s funny, and it’s exactly the kind of bombastic romp I miss in AAA games right now. As announced during today’s Nintendo Direct, I can finally take the Portal series on the go with me, because both titles are being ported to the Switch in the Portal: Companion Collection. According to Valve, this will include both full single-player experiences, as well as the co-op mode from Portal 2, which will be playable via split-screen, local, or online multiplayer.
I’m shocked that it took this long for Valve to port out these games, considering their continued popularity. Portal 2 just celebrated its ten year anniversary last year, and the first Portal game came out all the way back in 2007. Even if the wait was long, I think it’ll be worth it to get to play through the games again on my favorite console. Better late than never!
Portal: Companion Collection will be retailing for $19.99, and will we available for the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022.
