Overcooked: Special Edition, The Escapists 2 Come to Nintendo Switch in 2017

Team17 has announced Nintendo Switch versions for both Overcooked: Special Edition from Ghost Town Games and The Escapists 2 from Mouldy Toof Studios.

Both games will launch for the Nintendo Switch sometime this year. It’s worth mentioning Overcooked is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Escapists 2 also has a PC release planned for sometime later this year.

Here’s a rundown on each game:

Overcooked: Special Edition

In Overcooked, players must journey through a variety of cruel and unusual kitchens on their quest to become master chefs capable of conquering an ancient edible evil which plagues the land. Play solo or engage in classic, chaotic couch co-op for up to four players in both co-operative and competitive challenge modes. The special edition features the original game, plus all of the DLC. HD rumble integration means they can feel every chop through a tomato and the slosh of soup in a pot. Overcooked: Special Edition is coming later this year.

The Escapists 2

The sequel to the hugely popular prison escape series supports drop-in/drop-out co-op for up to four players (additional accessories are required for multiplayer modes, and are sold separately). Players can tie together knotted sheets and use them to climb down high windows in new multi-level prisons, and find other new ways to make a break for freedom. The Escapists 2 is coming later this year.
