Game owners will also be able to invite a friend to play for free using the Friend Pass. In addition, the universal story of relationships in the game can be experienced around the world with new dubs in Japanese, French, German and Spanish from Spain, as well as subtitles in different languages.
“We are huge fans of Hazelight and their game, and we are thrilled that they entrusted us with the development of this title for Nintendo Switch.said Scott Cromie of Turn Me Up Games. “We have worked with Josef before to bring his BAFTA-winning game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to console, and this collaboration will allow us to bring another award-winning title to the platform. Players will be able to experience the same immersive adventure and story from It Takes Two – that some already know and love – on Nintendo Switch.”
The critically acclaimed title will allow fans to unravel the complicated web that Cody and May are trapped in thanks to a magical spell that has turned them into dolls, all while facing ridiculous challenges around every corner. The unpredictable nature of each level will take players through a unique metaphorical gameplay experience that will tell a universal story about relationships, as Cody and May work together to save their fractured marriage from the brink of divorce. Whether it’s vacuum cleaners on the loose, opinionated love gurus, or a nightclub in desperate need of a DJ, obstacles will pop up behind every wall, creating hilarious and heartfelt moments.
