It Takes Two's journey to the big (or small) screen is exciting for the game, and it gives the wonderful tale a chance to reach an all-new audience. This is a move that Fares and Hazelight Studio deserve for their incredible work on the game - and it could make It Takes Two a huge cultural phenomenon. Here's hoping, eh?
