Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is Coming to Switch With Co-Op and Director's Commentary

Josef Fares will be giving the inside look into Brothers.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this month with a much-requested functionality: two player co-op. More importantly, there's going to be added Director's commentary from Josef Fares himself.

505 Games and Turn Me Up Games are releasing Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons on the Nintendo Switch on May 28. You can pre-order Brothers digitally now and get 10 percent off the $14.99 sale price. Although Brothers has been available since 2013, it has never included a co-op mechanic before.

When Brothers was first released, many players expected some kind of co-op feature given its core mechanic of controlling two brothers who work together to solve environmental puzzles. But Fares said that not including co-op in Brothers was an intentional decision, and he would instead use the feature in his next game A Way Out.

However, it looks like Fares had a change of heart for the Switch release of Brothers. Hopefully we'll find out his reasoning in the other new feature coming to the Switch version of Brothers: Director Commentary.

That's right, the famously candid Josef Fares will be giving a Director's commentary for Brothers on the Switch. I hope we'll gain some insight into the design of Brothers, but also maybe some more of Fares' opinions on other topics as well. It's not fair that we only get to hear from him at the Game Awards every year.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is available for pre-order now and will be available on May 28.
