One of our favorite games from last year is coming to Nintendo Switch. Electronic Arts, and developer Hazelight Studios announced It Takes Two will release on Nintendo Switch on November 4 ($39.99). Read our review of It Takes Two.
Like Hazelight’s previous co-op games, It Takes Two is built for, and requires, two players playing locally (aka couch co-op). The story stars Cody and May, a couple on the verge of divorce. Their daughter accidentally uses a magic book to transform the couple into tiny dolls. Honey I Shrunk the Parents ensues, but with a lot more heart (and platforming), as the couple makes their way through the house and garden.
Throughout each level Cody and May are given their own set of powerups and abilities, and only by working together can they overcome every challenge.
The Switch port was developed by Turn Me up Games. It Takes Two can be played with a second set of Joy-Cons or other gamepad, or by linking two Switch consoles for local play.
“As a Nintendo fan, I’m thrilled that Switch players will finally get to experience It Takes Two,” said Josef Fares, Founder and Game Director, Hazelight Studios. “Turn Me Up Games has an excellent record in bringing world class games to Nintendo Switch, and we trust their expertise in bringing It Takes Two’s fantastical world to the platform.”
It Takes Two also won Game of the Year from the 2021 Game Awards. It’s rated T for Teen.
