Josef Fares’ Hazelight Studios captured the hearts of many with its exciting and imaginative co-op adventure It Takes Two in 2021. Now, Nintendo Switch players will be able to enjoy that adventure together. It Takes Two is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and players will be able to play online, or local with two Switches this coming November.

Nintendo and Hazelight Studios announced the upcoming launch of It Takes Two on Nintendo Switch during the Nintendo Direct presentation on September 13, 2022. It will officially launch on the Nintendo Switch on November 4, 2022. There will be a multitude of options to be able to play too. Players can either play locally splitscreen on a single system, locally full screen on two Switches, or online with a Nintendo Switch Friend Pass.

It Takes Two was a pretty spectacular release in 2021, winning the hearts of players around the world, including here in our Shacknews review. It went on to take many awards, including being our #6 out of the Top 10 Games of 2021. It’s even being adapted into a movie for Amazon Prime with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson producing.

It will remain to be seen if It Takes Two performs as well on Switch as it did on other platforms, but we’ll find out soon enough when it launches on Nintendo’s hybrid platform in November.
