Valve has worked on a few video game porting projects with Nvidia in the past, having previously brought Half-Life 2 to the Nvidia Shield. Now, Valve and Nvidia have teamed up once again – this time to bring the Portal games to Nintendo Switch.
For those who don't know, the Nintendo Switch is powered by a custom Nvidia Tegra SoC. In order to get the most out of the hardware, Valve worked with Nvidia Lightspeed Studios to bring Portal 1 and Portal 2 to the Switch. The games will be sold bundled together in a collection, containing the full single-player games, as well as Portal 2's co-op mode.
Portal: Companion Collection was announced last night during a Nintendo Direct stream. The collection will be available digitally via the Nintendo eShop for $19.99, but there is no word on a physical release for the games.
Unfortunately, the game does not have a release date at this time, but it should release later this year. With that in mind, we'll be keeping an eye out for updates over the summer months.

KitGuru Says: It looks like the Portal games are going to have a bit of a resurgence this year. It has been years since these titles released, but they continue to be amongst the best puzzle games to ever release.
