I’d love for these to come to other consoles as well. Portal 2 is probably my fave game of all time so I’m down to buy it as many times as I need


Loch32

Well they were on xbox 360, xbox one and ps3 in the orange box so they might port that over


TheOsttle

Yeah I’d dig a ps5/XSX release


Phone_User_1044

You can play the orange box and portal 2 as they are both backwards compatible for Xbox.


TheOsttle

Yeah but I’d love for it to be a port made specifically for the newer systems. I’m a PlayStation/Nintendo owner, but I’ve been tempted to get an XSX for that backwards comparability alone….


SidFarkus47

It is available on XSX, but it still runs at 30fps.


TheOsttle

Yeah I guess I mean a boosted port. The haptic triggers/controller speaker being used for the portal gun on the ps5 alone would be dope to see


iuhiscool

If the orange box is ported over the tf2 community will go wild


[deleted]

Portal 2 was a standalone game


allenlucky

In case there were any concerns about performance, Portal 2 seems to be 60 FPS with no slowdown. Don't hesitate to buy these if you want Portal on the go!


spelunk_in_ya_badonk

Don’t hesitate to buy these. Period.


Sjknight413

It's out already for those unaware! Edit: 7.3gb for portal 2, 2.6gb for portal. Both download separately. Edit 2: 60fps for both titles, both look native 720p in handheld. Very surprising. Edit 3: portal contains all the 'still alive' content, bonus maps and developer commentary, also has achievements. Portal 2 doesn't have the custom maps feature of the steam version but that's to be expected, all coop content included and some bonus videos. Edit 4: both have gyro controls. Edit 5: Portal 2 coop can be split screen. At £13.49 this package is the steal of the century, if you have even a passing interest don't pass this up.


allenlucky

Says "Sold out" for me on the product page.


shiftDuck

Glados doesn't want you to do science, or have the cake.


fasderrally

There's cake??


ViperIguess

You damn right there is cake Go get it


MortalJohn

No, but there's lemons


allenlucky

UPDATE: If you got to the e-shop on your Switch itself, you should be able to download. Mine are downloading now!


thepariah4231

1080p docked for both, it also seems like.


D_Ashido

WOW this is rare.


Groose_McLoose

They came out on the 360, and valve source games are not hard to run.


ItsKipz

1080p60 Portal 2?


gergeler

It's an 11 year old title running on an 18 year old engine. I should hope it's 1080p60.


thepariah4231

Absolutely, but older games ported have struggled. Still can't wrap my head around why Star Wars Republic Commando isn't 1080p60


gergeler

That's true. However, Source has been running on similar architecture since at least 2014 on the NVIDIA Shield.


Loch32

This is valve. They're not gonna fuck up portal


Nas160

This all sounds incredible but I'm a little sad it's not physical But goddammit I'm still getting it


Xellith

Maybe [soon?](https://www.play-asia.com/portal-companion-collection/13/70f7i3)


Crash0202

God I fucking hope.


dandaman64

>Both have Gyro controls GOOD SHIT


shadow0wolf0

I already own Portal one and 2 on steam but this has me considering getting it. Maybe if there is a sale sometime this year or a physical version gets announced I'll buy it.


dandaman64

I have them both as well but am definitely going to grab this too. I've been meaning to replay them both, and Portal 2 with friends who don't have it for PC will be fun.


GrandPotatomancer

Glad(os) to hear it has the gyro. That was my main question. Thanks!


mixpix405

Do you know if Portal 2 co-op can be cross-platform? My son playing on the Switch, and me on the PC, for example?


MR_RATCHET_

Unfortunately not, no. There’s no Steam integration like the PS3 version had. Switch version is compatible only with Switch players. A shame, it was one of the features I loved about the PS3 version back in the day. Hopefully Portal 2 gets it added in on the Switch.


mixpix405

That's a bummer, but it's still worth every penny for him to get to play on his switch. Thanks for the info!


SidFarkus47

Do we know anything about this release yet? Framerate? Any bonus levels from Portal 2 or is it just the base game? I believe there was tons of content post launch. edit: Downvote a question? I own this game on Xbox and hate the fact that it still runs at 30fps there. I'm curious if this is worth a repurchase.


Sjknight413

It's 60fps, very surprising


FLRbits

Is it surprising? It's a 9 year old game, I didn't think it was that demanding


dit6118

Suprisingly, currently it is the only version of Portal for consoles supports 60fps.


emrexis

well I remembered they also have nvidia shield version of portal, they probably make that as a basis for this port considering similar architecture to switch


Sjknight413

It shouldn't be surprising but I tend to assume most ports to the switch will be 30fps, even if just for battery saving reasons. Take Borderlands for example, 2 might be a stretch for 60 but 1 should be able to hit 60 easily and it's still locked at 30.


Seanspeed

I mean, the Switch isn't really *that* much more powerful than the X360/PS3, especially in portable mode. So getting double the framerate with the same core graphics and resolution(or better in docked) would indeed be pretty impressive.


Walnut-Simulacrum

Yeah I got 60fps on my 2013 laptop with integrated graphics. It is not surprising.


VizP79

Played the first will happily do that again and the rest Because I freaking want cake


afidus

If you haven’t played the second before…you are in for a treat. The first game is essentially a demo for the second.


VizP79

Omg can't wait then!! Already downloaded


KarateKid917

The second one is a masterpiece


Nalfgar123

thank you stranger!


beevyhoots

Yet PC still doesn't have the bonus maps. wtf Valve.


Swagkitchen

Couldn’t watch the direct at work, are they doing a physical at some point? If not, i know what i’m doing on lunch


Loch32

From what was shown, no


Swagkitchen

Word, good enough for me! I’m sure LRG will come out with one 6 months from now to fuck me like always but man idc this time, been wanting to play these for a long time


SaltySteveD87

Frankly tired of LRG's shit to order from them again.


Lundgren_Eleven

I have faith that Portal is big enough to end up at Fangamer where the higher profile indies often do, rather than LRG.


ahnariprellik

You’d have to wait another 6 months to get the limited run order anyway?


ClubMeSoftly

Only if you order the regular edition. Get a CE and it'll take closer to a year.


Fisbian

There’s a physical version confirmed on playasia


Loch32

Do you have a link?


Swagkitchen

[here it is](https://www.play-asia.com/portal-companion-collection/13/70f7hx) Though i already bought digitally so it can dl in time for lunch sooooooo….. oh well ig lol Edit: they removed it, maybe no physical after all?


goatroach

Link died. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


Dadballoons

THANK YOU, I was about to buy it digitally before seeing this.


djricekcn

404 error


SwiperNoSwiping42

Later today? That’s today!


HammyHamerson

I get it!


JayTL

Fuck! Nintendo, think of my money!


southpawshuffle

It’s over man. Just surrender.


JayTL

With this and the persona news, and the potential Metroid rumors...can't wait to spend hundreds of games I've already owned lmao


blasto2236

My company gives us reward points every quarter we can use towards a variety of items, one of which is eShop gift cards. Just as I was thinking this was out of my budget this week, I clocked in to work and saw I’d just gotten my quarterly points deposit, and it gave me exactly enough to get a $20 eShop card. Hooray for corporate mandated rewards! Lol.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Bread_Truck

Yeah, it’s $20 USD. Same price as both games on Steam at regular price ($10 each). Damn good deal, considering Switch ports are typically more expensive.


WastedData69

And it runs great, as expected


takanakasan

Valve still based.


Botol-Cebok

That’s cheap! In EU it’s €18,99, which is £16,40. That’s quite a big difference.


Loch32

Here in Australia it'll probably be like $25 or $30, the price isn't up on the website yet.


skenasis

It's up on eShop, $27.99. Spot on 👍


Loch32

Perfect!


beepbeepbubblegum

Fastest purchase in the west


fur-q-

I didn't watch live but I paused the video and bought it straight away when it said out today.


SomeMetroid

A Half-Life collection would be neat in the future. HL and its expansions as well as HL2 and its episodes. Put in Vortigaunt mode and Decay as well, why not.


bhare418

The same company that ported this game to switch and the Nvidia shield also ported half life 2 and it’s episodes to the shield, so I’d imagine it’s doable, but maybe not at 60 fps (at least not for episode 2). I think if you install Android on a hacked switch you can play the half life ports


SomeMetroid

Portal 2 runs on a beefier version of Source than Episode 2, they could absolutely get it to 60fps if this got there.


bhare418

I mean, I haven’t gotten to 2 yet but I beat the first game this afternoon and later levels could drop frames, and when it saves the entire game would lock up for a second, so I’m not so confident. Still an amazing port obviously, i counted like 4 drops in the entire play through, but idk how that bodes for episode 2


GorbiJones

I'd love a Left 4 Dead collection, myself.


Mustimustdie

Preach sista. L4D probably my favorite multiplayer game of all time.


ThatGuyNamedJoey

$20 for these games is an absolute steal. I don’t mean to sound flippant but you’d be a total moron to not buy this if you’ve never played these games before. Edit: Just worked my way through most of Portal 1. In an ecosystem where we are often conditioned to accept lackluster and barebones Switch ports, the ports of these two games are like an oasis in a desert. The Portal: Companion Collection may be the single best Nintendo Switch port of all time outside of first party. This will be THE shining example of how to do a port of an older game to Nintendo Switch. I will reiterate: if you have not played these games before, buy this package immediately.


Loch32

I've been really wanting to play portal but I've not got a pc yet to this is great for me


Nurematsu

You're in for a real treat! The first game is excellent as an introduction to the concept of the gameplay. The second is where everything gets phenomenal, particularly the writing. I won't say any more. I hope you enjoy it!


Loch32

I mean I already know how portal 1 goes and I've played portal 2 multiplayer with a friend but is till cant wait!


dan0314

Just FYI portal 2 co-op is a completely separate campaign to single player


thefookinpookinpo

Even though I have played both I’d still feel like moron if I didn’t buy it.


tendeuchen

On the other hand, if you've waited this long, might as well wait another couple of months and get them for $10 on sale.


Badloss

My instant gratification and my time are easily worth more than $10


EmmBee27

And personally I'd wanna get it at $20 if not just to support more of these kinds of releases at this price point. I'm so used to Switch ports coming at a premium, but this is a nice surprise for such big games. Hell $30 would've probably been a fair price in my eyes for Switch ports of these games, but at $20 I don't think I'll be waiting for a sale.


blasto2236

I’d have paid $20 for each game and not blinked. $20 for both is an absolute steal. I hope sales are strong and Valve does something similar with the Left 4 Dead and Half Life franchises.


sdcSpade

On Steam, the games regularly go for $1.99. They're great games, but their price history has kinda devalued them.


jrec15

The thing is not everyone is going to value saving $16 that highly to wait the 2 years it will probably take to come close to that price on Switch. It's a $16 difference, that's like 3 coffees, easily worth it to play now and have a portable version. We're not talking about the highway robbery of some of the $60/70 titles now.


stickyfiddle

2 of the greatest games of all time. I've been dying to re-play these as I don't have anything that can play them. Downloading now :)


Reddilutionary

This was always going to be the price if these games were ever coming to Switch, and I'm glad they have... but I just bought Portal 1 + 2 for a total of $4 so I can play it on my Steam Deck when it shows up.


Badloss

I cannot wait to show this to my gf she's never played either of them


WendysChiliAndPepsi

How is this a steal? They’re both $2 each on steam right now. https://i.imgur.com/g6DvFYk.jpg


[deleted]

[удалено]


ThatGuyNamedJoey

Sure but if someone’s waited this long to play them I doubt they were gonna buy it on Steam in the first place. In fact, if I’m not mistaken, they’ve both been free before I believe.


apostleofhustle

https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/234/Portal_Bundle/


allenlucky

For all those asking, yes, Portal 2 has co-op, both split screen and online multiplayer via Nintendo Switch Online!


j1h15233

I would kill for a Portal 3.


Loch32

Welp, start stabbing because it's not happening any time soon


Dragonbuttboi69

We kinda got it in lego dimensions. Johnny C did the credits song again so I count it


JordynGeorgia

There's fanmade stuff like Portal: reloaded available on steam


Galle_

Valve? Counting to three?


Hochwaehlchen

Valve is allergic to number 3.


CartoonWarStudios

Some of the best games ever made


KurtBaboon

Hopefully this does well enough to get a Half Life 2 port on the Switch.


WastedData69

It runs flawlessly. So happy!


trailjunkee

Just release Orange Box already! Sheesh!


lightyourbrainonfire

Half life episodes next please.


Every_Scheme4343

Nice!! I have never played them.


BlueKnight44

They are must-plays for anyone that enjoys games. They are a piece gaming history and cultural icons in the gaming space. The first one is a true classic. The second is great too, but does not match the overall simplistic charm of the first imo.


MastaAwesome

True, though most people I've talked to absolutely feel that the second is the superior game. It's like a SMB3 vs SMW situation where most people prefer the sequel, but there's an argument for the first.


Loch32

Neither, can't wait


jbayne2

Well there goes everything else I’ve been trying to play… Hello two of the best games ever made!


seganaUK

I had a feeling this was gonna drop today - it's downloading as I type.


According_Length_990

Can I play with single joycon?


seganaUK

I've just tried and as far as I can see, no you can't. Came out of the game, changed to a single joy-con, but when I went back in the game automatically switches back to needing two joy-cons.


HBCDresdenEsquire

Now I can finally play these two games I have played and beaten hundreds of times again on a different console. What a fabulous day. I’m being an asshole, but it’s 100% truth. Instant purchase.


Spyes23

Objectively I'm like "It's a 15-year-old game and the Switch has been out for five years, this should have happened years ago." But subjectively? I'm as giddy as a schoolkid! Downloaded and played it all day, pretty much neglecting all my adult responsibilities!


jardex22

Considering this is the first Valve developed game on consoles in awhile, it's understandable. ~~The PS3 version of Portal 2 may have been their last release.~~ Counter Strike: Global Offensive was release a year later, while DOTA Underlords was released to iOS and Android in 2020. Still, it's not often that Valve does anything outside of Steam.


JordanM85

Really hoping they do a physical release for this collection. I'd be shocked if they didn't.


Possum98

I've never played Portal. Should I get this?


iConiCdays

Portal 1 is considered on of the greatest games ever made. Don't trust my word, look it up


Galle_

Do you like A, puzzle games, and B, dark humor? (actual dark humor, not just someone being terrible and expecting you to laugh) If so, you will enjoy Portal.


Blue_Rogue_Aika

Do you like cake?


Joventer567

Someone cut the cake! We were going to wait, but I couldn’t stop them. Better hurry back quick. (Sorry if I butchered that line)


yedyed

It's probably not everyone's cup of tea, but Portal 2 is honestly the funniest game I've ever played.


TheOtherWhiteCastle

This was a triumph


DonCaliente

Making a note here: huge success.


particlematt

Two of my favorite games of all time on the Switch. What a great day.


jrrt0ken

Source Engine works so well on Switch, this port is probably based on the Shield TV ports. Would love if Valve ported HL2 to Switch…


Bluprint

Portal and Portal 2 were the only reasons why I would go get a steam deck. I'm glad they're bringing it to the switch. So hyped for this sudden release, I was expecting it to be released fall/winter!


Shadowbanned24601

Praise be


dethmstr

How does the motion control compare to the razer hydra?


blackandwhitetalon

WHAT!? Christmas came early?


ShadooTH

Oh holy shit this is surprising. First time a valve game has been on a Nintendo console?


jardex22

Pretty sure. I know Portal 2 and the orange box had console releases, but Valve usually focuses on PC.


Isunova

Portal is one of the greatest series ever, and these games run great on the Switch. Please give us a Half-Life collection next!


BronzeHeart92

The Aperture Science Nintendo Associate would like to remind you to test to your hearts content!


justincouv

Why haven’t more Portals ever been made? They’re seriously some of my favorites of all time.


Osiris360

Will it be getting a physical release?


Loch32

From what they said in the direct, no. They might do one later down the line but I doubt it


temporary_location_

Amazing and £13 is a brilliant price. One of the best ever IMO. Gameplay is superb, the puzzles are brilliant and how the story unfolds is superb. Art direction and soundtrack are also top notch.


UboaNoticedYou

Do these releases have gyro? Won't be picking up otherwise, aiming portals with analog sticks is a pita and almost ruined the 360 port of Portal 2 for me back in the day.


koempleh

I can confirm they have gyro controls.


UboaNoticedYou

Hell yeah, buying now


DoctorGolho

seems like it


begselwalch

Loved these games back in the day on PC. Will have to buy this at some point.


zoomy942

It says two player for portal two, does that mean on the same device? Or would I have to have two switches?


rico_k

if I remember well, the og had couch and online multiplayer


zoomy942

Yeah. Waiting for confirmation on this one. Would be a blast with my son with couch coop.


jmpavlec

Pretty sure split screen is there on one switch


nighttimemobileuser

I doubt it will but will this have cross play with the steam version? Or just Nintendo Online multiplayer?


According_Length_990

Nintendo online yes, cross play don't think so (need to confirm)


LoneWolfpack777

Any word on a physical copy? One not done by Limited?


akeep113

i've played through both of these games numerous times but i'm still tempted to buy this again..


Ashen_One86

Bargain of the century.


ArbitraryJam

Man I wanna play this right away but I also wanna wait and see if they do a physical release. I don't know what I should do.


OldBlueLegs

I legit googled “Portal Switch” randomly and was informed I could buy it, as of two hours ago. I love this system.


tmd429

This is a triumph...


ToastyStephana

Exciting


SchwartzJesuz

Portal 2 is one of my all time favourite games. On console, it’s sadly stuck on the PS3 / 360 generation, so as someone who does not own a PC, I’ve been looking madly forward to this releasing on the Switch. Would’ve prefered a PS5-version, but this will most certainly do! That ‘releasing later today’ put a huge smile on my face; certainly a welcoming surprise. Cannot wait to play co-op with my girlfriend, and relive some of the best gaming memories I’ve ever had, more than 10 years ago.


Walnut156

If you have a PC and for whatever reason never got these games it is currently 2 dollars total for both games


Redbig_7

almost everyone already owns this game on pc


OhMyGoodGord

Just finished downloading the bundle. It's been too long since I've played either. I'm going in!


Johnnyhoboy

I wish there was local wireless or online co-op


Praelior0

Boy do I have good news for you!


tansporl

Bought it as soon as I could on the eShop website. Can't wait to get home to play these awesome games!


Kidtendo

So tempting! I'm going to wait a few months to see if we actually get a physical release first. Definitely want to pick this up at some point!


cfranck3d

What's this? Portable Portal? Quickly! To my wallet!


IhateDonkeys

Already owned Portal 2, and I just bought Portal and beat it all on Sunday thanks to the steam sale (I played it years ago on my 360). So much nostalgia for such a beautiful and fun game. Love to see this news.


mangotangy

I was sad when I downloaded it on steam and my laptop ended up being too old, so this is a dream come true. Such an iconic game


Awkward_Context6676

Really wish they made a remastered collection, but this is certainly exciting


idontloveanyone

How long are these games?


BansheeTK

portal 1 if you play base game is about 2-4 hours long depending on how fast you can figure out the puzzles, portal 2 is alot longer


DealinBone

Is there online coop?


The_ArtThief

Yes


TTSsox

The online coop is arguably a bigger game than the main game. It provides hours of entertainment.


MyCatEdwin

Does Portal 2 really not include developer’s commentary?


jardex22

It should, if it was like the PC version.


fakeuglybabies

Nooooo why couldn't it be out earlier I could have used the eshop card my brother got me.


spudds96

Please do half life


valzi

Any mod support like Quake and Doom?


Clilly1

Cannot believe how well this is priced.


Brtprt

Lets buy this shit for the 4th time. Still one of my favorite series of all time. Hope the custom maps section of the steam version will head to the switch as well.


ITCHYisSylar

I'd totally pick up a physical release.


boonus_boi

This was a triumph


Electronic-Ad-7002

Switch Up on yt have a good run down of both games


[deleted]

Love this game and so excited it is on the Switch now - never understood why this was not ported before this - immediate buy!


StarWarsPlusDrWho

Make Portal 3 you cowards


Yaboku777

Just beat both of these in the space of this afternoon, I'm glad these masterpieces are available for Switch and through my experience they run perfectly. And for only £13 it's a bargain
