Starbreeze is best known for action-heavy shooters like Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay and the recent Syndicate reboot. What they’re not known for is lyrical fairy tales inspired by Swedish filmmakers. They hope to change that with the release of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, the first offering from the 2013 edition of Microsoft’s yearly Summer of Arcade promotion:
Guide two brothers on an epic fairy tale journey from visionary Swedish film director, Josef Fares and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios. Control both brothers at once as you experience co-op play in single player mode, like never before. Solve puzzles, explore the varied locations and fight boss battles, controlling one brother with each thumb stick. This is one journey you will never forget.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is available to download for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
