Team17’s pixel art-coated sequel The Escapists 2 has received a dazzling launch trailer marking the release of the game for Switch today. The game is available to snap up right now on the Nintendo Store for £19.99.

The Escapists 2 does exactly what it says on the tin, and can be played solo or with some mates in tow thanks to the all-new drop-in/drop-out cooperative spilt-screen mode. You can also plump for online multiplayer co-op or versus if you prefer, and tinker with a bevy of customisation options.
