505 Games today unveiled their entire E3 2015 line-up and while a lot of the games on that list are for non-mobile platforms, or are mobile games but ones that have been out for a bit now, there was one little gem hidden among everything. That gem is the critically acclaimed Brothers – A Tale of Two Son and the fact that it will be arriving onto Android soon.
UPDATE: Wednesday, May 25th – 8:03 PM, PST: It has almost been a year since we reported on 505 Games fantastic and award-winning game Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons. This amazing adventure game has made its way to many different platforms, and now you can play it on your Android device. I am not quite sure when it showed up in the Play Store, but since the download count was only showing two when I found it, it probably is pretty recent. Either way, this is a game you must download. Now is the perfect time too because the game is on sale for a limited time at $2.99 with no in-app purchases. We don’t know what the regular price will be, but $2.99 is a steal for a game of this caliber. If you are just as eager to play this as we are, you can find the link to the game at the bottom of this article.
Originally released onto consoles, Brothers – A Tale of Two Son has players controlling each brother with each analog stick on a gamepad, making for some pretty interesting gameplay. This version of the game will be re-released onto next-gen consoles, as well as mobile devices, and will also feature a director’s commentary, the soundtrack, and a concept art gallery.
As the developers describe this game, this is an “epic story told without words, set in a changing world separated into diverse chapters, ranging from the craggy peaks of mountains to the musty depths of underground caves. This unique mythical world, which draws inspiration from Nordic cultures and archeology, is constantly challenging the brothers between the old and the new ways“.
Since players have to control each brother with an analog stick on the same gamepad, doing this on a touchscreen should end up being an interesting adventure in itself. It could work though and quite well. It could also be a tragedy if done poorly. However, all the really cool atmospheric visuals and environments will be in the mobile version, as well as the enjoyable storyline.
As for a release date, nothing solid has been announced yet, only that Brothers – A Tale of Two Son will arriving onto mobile platforms sometime in the upcoming holiday season. We will be going hands-on with Brothers – A Tale of Two Son and 505 Games’ other titles next week at E3 2015. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments below.
