Video game publisher Maximum Games and developer Spiral House, today announced that Troll and I – the adventure that pits the dynamic duo of Troll and Otto against a Scandinavian forest of wilds – will be available on Nintendo Switch on August 15, 2017. Additionally, the game will receive a major patch for console and PC versions on the 21st July.
"Troll and I is the perfect first entry for us into the Nintendo Switch system," said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. "The cooperative gameplay lends itself perfectly to the local co-op features of the platform, where two friends can work together to battle the challenges they face as a team."
Troll and I was previously released on PS4™, Xbox One, and PC in March of this year. Gavin Sheehan reviewed the game on release giving it a 7/10 and remarked, "Troll And I is pretty okay and the story is nice, but it's got a lot of weird little quirks to it that feel like it's unfinished. That's not to say it's a bad game, it just feels like it could have used a spit polish before they put it out onto the world."
The PC and console versions of the game will receive a major patch on 21st July. That patch should make the game feel a bit more finished by implementing the following changes:
- Addition of a mini-map
- Additional checkpoints
- Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty settings
- Increased crafting speed
- New tutorials
- Additional text hints
- Increased resources for crafting and survivability
- Overall balance improvements.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will also see these changes when it launches in August.
Troll and I was developed by Spiral House and is published by Maximum Games. The game is available now in North America, UK, EMEA, Australia and New Zealand, for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC, and will be available on Nintendo Switch August 15th, 2017.
