Some online “proof” exists that Brother: A Tale of Two Sons, an adventure game created by Starbreeze Studios and originally released in 2013, might be making an eight-generation debut. Recent tweets by Twitter user lifelower reveals screenshots of German ratings listing, filed under the publisher 505 Games Italy. The screenshots list a 12+rating for the game for a possible release on PS4 and Xbox One.
It is unknown if these ratings are real or fans creating a little hoax….or fans just hoping the game will jump onto the newest generation of gaming consoles.
The original game was a lovely creation that blended gorgeous visuals, a story featuring deep themes of maturity and independence, and a superb soundtrack. The controls for moving both the older and younger brothers simultaneously could be finicky at times. However, similar to thatgamecompany’s Journey, the style with which Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons visually and cleverly conveys their simple yet touching tale is something that is truly rare to find among games today.
If Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons does come to the newest generation of consoles, it should be a game that many gamers should embrace, especially with some updated graphics and tweaks.
