Additionally, the game receives a major patch for console and PC versions on July 21st.
“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.”

With the ability to play solo or with a friend in local couch co-op, players must guide Otto and Troll through the majestic mountains and lush forests of the Nordic wilderness as they try to dodge and defeat various enemies, including mythical orcs and ruthless hunters.
The game was previously released on PS4™, Xbox One, and PC in March of this year. Those versions will receive a major patch on July 21st implementing the following improvements: 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 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC, and will be available on Nintendo Switch August 15th, 2017. This title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB.
