This month has been filled with small game surprises on Nintendo Switch, with almost every week being jam-packed with indie titles and classic game ports making the system’s library even more appealing. It’s looking like January will keep up the trend, with Team17 announcing the Switch release date for its prison break follow-up The Escapists 2.

Already released for other platforms earlier this year, The Escapists 2 lets you plan out prison escapes from a variety of locales with a wide array of tools at your disposal. Do you slowly dig a tunnel, or would you rather steal a disguise and mosey on out to freedom?

The game also features co-op play, both locally and online, letting you team up with a fellow convict to plot an escape together. Joy-Con play will be supported in this mode, making it easier than ever.

You’ll be able to download The Escapists 2 via the Nintendo Switch eShop on January 11th.
