Briefly: One of gaming's most emotional journeys from the last few years, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, is coming to Xbox One and PS4 during the Christmas holiday season It's also hitting iOS and Android, although one suspects it will lose emotional oomph without analogue sticks.


Whether it's an RPG that tells a story over dozens of hours, or a strategy game that takes months to master, games are often a considerable time investment. For many people this is central to gaming's appeal: nowhere else in art can you find such complete worlds to lose yourself in or such stern challenges to overcome.


Do you remember the moment when you learnt how to play video games? When the joystick or the gamepad stop being a foreign object and started feeling like a part of your body? Maybe you do; maybe you don't. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a game that puts you back in touch with that sensation, using an unorthodox control scheme to make you feel like your relationship with video games is starting all over again.
