New trailer for Two Brothers is Game Boy evolved


3:00 AM on 04.04.2013



Two Brothers. This, my friends, is the kind of game I want to start seeing more of. Time to give the 2D retro throwback a swift kick in the nuts and really take the style to its extremes. Don't just emulate the old-school look and feel! Use the power of modern technology to push boundaries!

Two Brothers by AckkStudios is scheduled for release this summer on XBLA, Wii U eShop, PC, Mac, and Linux. To further tantalize the taste receptors, a new trailer has appeared, featuring plenty of delicious Link's Awakening / Secret of Mana exploration and combat, gradually encroaching splashes of color à la Pleasantville, and crazy detailed pixel art that reminds me of photographs captured using the Game Boy Camera.

This is a good thing.
