Bridge Constructor: Portal coming to Switch

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology!

For the last year we've been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.

Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The console versions will follow in early 2018.

"If you've been paying attention the solution should be obvious. As the case may be... good luck!"

Peach's cake is a lie!

This is a joke right? We get Portal ”3” before Half-Life 3! LOL

Switch need a Portal + Portal 2 collection too, before I can take this seriously

Please; Portal 1 & 2 on Switch would be great!

To be honest, I'd probably re-buy almost all of Valve's games (HL1+2+episodes, TF2, Portal 1+2, L4D2) if they came to Switch....

Which probably means DOTA 2 would be most likely to come to Switch, which I have zero interest in.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

All this. And it wouldn't even be a mainline DOTA game, it'd be a board game based on the card game.

This is more likely to happen than you think.
HL2 and Portal 1 are already on the Nvidia Shield after all.

Keep in mind that this isn't even a Valve game, it's just another company (Headup Games) using Valve's IP for a new entry in their Bridge Constructor series.

Portal 3, this is not. Will we ever get Portal 3? So long as Valve focuses on free-to-play multiplayer games and card games based on these free-to-play multiplayer games, we won't.

I think, the matter of fact that this game comes to switch means a lot.

Although this is not a "real" valve game, this means something, imo. If this game would have been released in 2014 or something, it would have skipped the WiiU for sure.

I was going to mention that Zen Pinball had a Portal table for Wii U, but weirdly enough, I just checked and that was one of the tables that wasn't available as DLC for the system.

So is it like that Poly Bridge game?

But with portal! And less cake. Oh sorry, I just got told I have to say there is actually cake even if there's none. My bad. More cake then.

yeah i was very confused for a moment; There's also a lego dimension portal thing I think so not the first time the portal license stuff. They might as well collect from a switch collection, it could easily help steam like cross platform and stuff.

The memes... the unfunny memes... are jumping ship to Nintendo's...

...
*sigh*
"Nintendo Switch" has 15 characters (including space)
Nintendo Switch has 14 letters
1 + 4 = 5
15 / 5 = 3
Portal 3 confirmed

Man, it's hard to believe that it's already been 10 years since the original Portal. I remember just seeing it start as an indie game built on Source engine before Valve decided to pick it up and showed it off at E3.
For over a decade, I've been cheering on to one day see Valve games land on 'tendo systems, and now this is probably the closest thing to that movement. I still opt to have an on-the-go Dota 2 on NS.

I wish Valve still made games

As a Portal fan it's hard to see Valve going in the direction they are. They're very successful but at the expense of some wonderful franchises. It's nice to see the Portal isn't completely dead, even though this is an odd spin-off that isn't even made by Valve.

Remember when Valve actually made video games, instead of just selling others' games? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
