The list of upcoming games for Nintendo Switch continues to grow as we learned today that Troll and I will be bringing havoc to Nintendo's new wonder console this Spring. The game has been developed by UK based Spiral House and will be published by Maximum Games.
In Troll and I, players will be tasked with strategically utilising Troll and Otto's unique strengths to overcome the many enemies they will face in the Scandinavian backcountry – whether they be the human hunters pursuing Troll for their own greedy ends or mythical orcs known as 'Ahky' unleashed from the depths of the earth. Solo players can seamlessly switch between Otto and Troll in-game, using Troll's massive size and strength to throw boulders at enemies or Otto's speed and resourcefulness to stealthily take out a lone hunter without raising an alarm. Troll and I also supports split-screen gameplay for couch co-op, as two heads, and pairs of hands, are always better than one.
Throughout the game, players will encounter various natural resources when playing as Otto, and should make use of Otto's keen senses and attunement to nature to track down wildlife, which can be hunted and used to heal him during battle. Otto will exploit the materials of the forest to fashion spears and other weapons that will prove crucial to the duo's survival. Otto's connection to his surroundings and the environment around him plays a key role in the player successfully navigating treacherous situations.
The game will be fully playable at home or on the go using the Joy-Con controllers for both solo and split-screen co-op gameplay, allowing players to continue Troll and Otto's adventure wherever they are.
