The Talos Principle Is Coming To Switch Today

The Talos Principle: Deluxe Edition is coming to Switch, and it features all DLC.


During the recent Nintendo Indie World Showcase, it was announced that the mind-bending narrative puzzle game, The Talos Principle, is coming to the Nintendo Switch later today. First released in 2014, the game puts players in the role of an android who has human-like sentience. While exploring a labyrinth full of different puzzles and other oddities, the protagonist will learn more about the mounting struggles as it comes to grips with its curiosity about life.

Given its balance of focusing on puzzle-solving and storytelling, The Talos Principle is a solid pick for the Switch library. It's very much an intimate experience, and with the Switch's portability and accessibility, it makes it seem like diving into a good book. This release will be the complete edition of The Talos Principle, which includes the DLC Road to Gehenna, which acts as a sort of epilogue to the main story.

In GameSpot's review of The Talos Principle, former editor Jeremy Signor stated: "The Talos Principle is an absolute joy to play, packed to the gills with expertly designed puzzles and enough ancillary content to make any history of philosophy buff salivate. But all of that is almost beside the point in the face of the game's thematic ambitions. It may seem like you're alone in this world, but you're really not, and that's the greatest triumph of The Talos Principle: It serves as a fantastic representation of the human condition, complete with curiosity, speculation, wonder, fear, and a yearning to know the unknowable. But most importantly, it nails the role that isolation plays in the human condition. Because of all we don't know, because of how seemingly out of control we all are in the cosmic sense, we feel alone. But, in reality, we're alone together."

Along with The Talos Principle, other games like Sports Story, a new character for Streets of Rage 4, and SuperSmash were revealed during the indie showcase.
