The re-release for the latest batch of consoles will feature “director’s commentary, soundtrack, and concept art gallery content.”
In addition to consoles, Brothers will be released for iOS, Android, and Windows phones and tablets in the same period.
Brother: A Tale of Two Sons was first released on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and PC in 2013. The game places players in control of two brothers, with each one mapped to the two thumbsticks on a controller.
The pair must journey to the Tree of Life and acquire its water to save their sick father. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons received critical acclaim for its emotionally charged narrative, exhilarating platforming, and challenging puzzle design.
In GameSpot’s Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons review, we awarded the game a score of 8.
“Sure, the puzzles are suitably challenging and mighty clever in places, and the imposing environments are beautifully realised, but it’s all there to build those emotional ties, and create moments that hit you right in the pit of your stomach,” said our reviewer.
“Brevity is the only real misstep here, and you can’t help but feel that with a little more time to build up the characters those emotional highs would have an even greater impact. But it’s not enough to detract from what is a great achievement: an ambitious, emotionally affecting adventure that’s short, but oh so sweet.”
