In a surprise teaser during a Nintendo Direct, Valve has announced that the Portal series will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch.

The two games in the series, Portal and its sequel Portal 2, will be packaged as the "Portal: Companion Collection".

The collection is set to release later this year and will cost US$20 upon release.

This announcement is a surprising one, since the Nintendo Switch is a direct competitor to Valve's Steam Deck console, which is set to release two weeks from now.

The first game in the Portal series was released almost a decade and a half ago in October 2007 as part of the Orange Box collection, which also contained Team Fortress 2 and Half Life 2: Episode Two.

The sequel, Portal 2, was released three and a half years later, in April 2011. The release of Portal 2 marked the start of a period of few game releases from Valve.
