And it's here earlier than expected, too

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is available now at retail stores on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, publisher 505 Games announced today.

Ported by The Workshop, the $19.99 next-gen releases arrived a bit earlier than expected, too. 505 pegged them for a holiday 2015 release when it announced the current console versions in June.

The publisher says that Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons will also be available as a download on each console. The Xbox One version lists a release date of Aug. 12 and also sells for the same price as its retail counterpart. It's not available for PS4 in the PlayStation Store as of this writing. The game's PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are available on their respective console stores for $14.99, making the current-gen ports $5 more expensive.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons tells the story of two brothers on a quest to find a cure for their ailing father. Players control both, simultaneously, with a single controller.

Developed by Starbreeze Studios, it originally launched in 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Early this year, 505 Games purchased the game, its trademarks and domain names in a $500,000 cash deal.

If you missed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons the first time around, be sure to read Polygon's review, in which Justin McElroy called it "one of the most moving and wonderful games I've played this year."
