In Troll and I, players will be tasked with strategically utilising Troll and Otto's unique strengths to overcome the many enemies they will face in the Scandinavian backcountry - whether they be the human hunters pursuing Troll for their own greedy ends or mythical orcs known as 'Ahky' unleashed from the depths of the earth. Solo players can seamlessly switch between Otto and Troll in-game, using Troll's massive size and strength to throw boulders at enemies or Otto's speed and resourcefulness to stealthily take out a lone hunter without raising an alarm. Troll and I also supports split-screen gameplay for couch co-op, as two heads, and pairs of hands, are always better than one.

Developed by HAL Laboratory, creators of the Kirby series, the BOXBOY! trilogy of puzzle-platformers sees players control Qbby, a simple yet surprisingly expressive square-shaped character, as he makes his way through a multitude of 2D side-scrolling levels. While he may look like a somewhat unassuming hero, Qbby packs a rather special power into that small frame of his – the ability to create a string of boxes out of thin air.
