Releasing Today: The Portal Collection on Nintendo Switch

The Portal Collection, comprised of Portal 1 and Portal 2, launches on Nintendo Switch today! Here’s the details:

The Portal Collection

Portal 1 and 2 are first-person puzzle games developed by Valve and initially released on Steam. It has won countless awards for its amazing puzzle design. As the name suggests, you have to use portals to transport a cube from point A to point B in order to advance to the next section, where another puzzle awaits you. Your gun allows you to create a two-doorway portal through which you can move the cube across rooms and obstacles.

If you think going from room to room, moving a box around and completing puzzles can get real boring real fast, think again. The puzzles are so varied you’re never going to extinguish your drive to complete them, and the story and characters provide some much-needed comic relief to douse your growing frustration when the cube just won’t listen to you.

What’re you looking at, tin can?
