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 21st July. 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.
A few months have passed since Troll and I was first revealed for Switch and now only a month and a few days stand before gamers and it’s eventually release, so even though it is just month away, at least it’s only another month instead of another two or more!
