The Escapists 2 coming to Switch in January

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Take Mouldy Toof's prison break sequel on the road.

Publisher Team17 and developer Mouldy Toof have announced that The Escapists 2 will be settling into its cell on Nintendo Switch in the new year, going live January 11 for $19.99.

Building on the successful formula of the original Escapists, this cutesy indie title involves busting out of high-security jails by fashioning escape routes while nominally keeping to the strict timetables and rules of your incarceration.

The Switch version will obviously allow you to take the action on the road, as well as enjoying it on a big screen, and it will also be possible to take part in local two-player split-screen action using Joy-Con or Pro Controller.

The Escapists 2 was previously released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, where it picked up mostly favorable reviews.
